We’re loving warehouse conversions at the moment, it’s something about the high ceilings, the raw walls and the feeling of space they offer. As Brunswick gentrifies up the cafe strip, beautiful warehouses like the one Lux Foundry occupies are becoming more common. Industrial sheek at the heart height of the design of this Brunswick cafe. Despite being busy, Lux Foundary has a way of feeling open, it’s rough around the edges, but feels polished. The staff are relaxed but efficient. True to its beginnings as a warehouse, this is a venue with high ceilings And a cooling echo. We started with our usual coffees. Lux Foundry delivered a deliciously fruity coffee, perfectly brining out the flavours in the bean. It was a light and bright brew but we wish they made some attempt at latte art. Our first dish was the big breakfast, with all the usual suspects. It was a hearty and sizeable meal, a mix of meaty and fried things. If you’re looking for a BIG, big breakfast, we may have just found it! We also tried the French toast with a coconut crust, coffee cream, blackberry coulis and a praline. The French toast was okay but a bit eggy. The coconut crust was an inspired addition, a great way to enhance a French toast dish. It would have worked better were the French toast crispy and not soggy. The coffee cream was beautifully smooth and creamy, while the blackberry and praline added bite and texture.
Lux Foundry offer a breakfast in a venue that truly demonstrates the wonders Brunswick has to offer!
