21 Hope St, Brunswick

Located in a one of a kind 1981 heritage-listed building just off Sydney Road Brunswick, you will find this bind blowing location – Lux Foundry.


Previously home to Lux Oven Foundry headquarters (hence the name) for Chef Ovens which employed over 1,500 people has today been transformed into one of Melbourne’s top cafes.


From the second you walk in, you won’t want to leave. The large open space café (which is about to expand) embraces the natural elements of the heritage listed building. Exposed-brick walls raised ceilings and bare concrete floors.


Opening doors in 2009 Lux Foundry has become an institution in Brunswick and Melbourne’s fast-growing café culture. Frequently changing their menu to keep things fresh, Lux Foundry focuses on bringing the best in local and seasonal produce to each and everyone one of their dishes – “Produce that not only looks good but it tastes good”.


With the menu inspired by Asian influences and focusing on keeping dishes simple and most importantly Instagram worthy! The café has all corners covered catering to everyone ensuring intolerances and preferences can be catered for.


With so many dishes we couldn’t resist trying a few…


For all the sweet lovers out there, you can’t go pas the ‘Brioche French Toast’ with orange mascarpone, vanilla and cinnamon berries with citrus pears. If that isn’t enough ‘Spiced Gingerbread’ with poached mandarin and rhubarb, honey syrup, crème Fraiche, caramelised white chocolate and pistachio. In our eyes, these are the best kind of winter warmers!!


On a savoury note – the classic Chilli Scramble but with a twist will have you wanting to order more! ‘Chilli Crab Scramble’ soft chilli scrambled eggs on brioche with blue swimmer crab and a fragrant herb salad. If that isn’t enough the ‘Pull Pork Eggs Benedict’ with slow cooked pork shoulder, bacon crumb, poached eggs, smashed chilli peas, apple cider hollandaise and house potato hash.


It doesn’t just stop there! Serving you the best with Proud Mary coffee using ‘Humbler’ Blend. Fresh juices, smoothies, shakes and even bloody Mary’s to cure that head on a Sunday morning after a big night out!


Make sure you get down to Lux Foundry. With plenty of space, it’s the perfect space for you and your furry best friend!
