The brightest part of your day will be here
What was once a gas house providing lighting for parts of Melbourne has been beautifully transformed into Melbourne's Lux Foundry.

Located in Brunswick, Lux Foundry is located on Hope St and an ideal breakfast (or brunch) spot. Image courtesy of Lux Foundry.


This Brunswick favourite serves Proud Mary coffee, breakfast and lunch 7 days a week. The cafe is licensed and also offers free WiFi, making a clever little place to take a bit of time and work away from the office or home.

In a tribute to its heritage, Lux, (a unit of measurement of light emittance) Foundry was established six years ago and has since built a reputation for great service, delicious fare and a welcoming environment.

Lux was originally a foundry making cast iron stoves, two of which are still currently at the cafe, adding to its modern industrial warehouse feel. In the 1950s it then became Craig & Seeley who continued making ovens, later changing to what most people now know as the CHEF oven brand.

Kicking of our morning with a green smoothie at Lux Foundry.


We tried out the green smoothie as well as a menu favourite for breakfast, the museli with early grey poached pears, yoghurt, berries and honey. A definite win.

My breakfast companion kept it simple and delicious with sourdough toast, fresh avocado and traditional Aussie Vegemite.

The service at Lux Foundry never disappoints and for those who enjoy dining al fresco, there's plenty of outdoor space to enjoy your meal, coffee and the fresh air.

It's also not uncommon to see locals with their dog outdoors, the odd cyclist or six and mothers groups outside.

Situated at 21 Hope St. Brunswick, Lux Foundry is just a short stroll from public transport as well as Brunswick's main retail strip full of eclectic shops.
