Set in the peaceful surrounds of the Parnell’s Jubilee Building is a handsome new cafe attracting the vicinity’s tenants, neighbours, and visitors alike. Those in pursuit of a leisurely coffee and bite to eat following their leisurely appreciation of the nearby Domain’s verdant appeal, will also find solace in the recently opened Foundation on George.
This brand new coffee shop has succeeded the former Foundation café with a fit out undertaken by Sophie Beever of the project design team at neighbouring Cavit & Co. Underscoring the brick beauty of the building’s construction are distinctive elements such as the contemporary mustard coloured chairs and various lighting features, rounded off by the polished cement underfoot.
Entering from the courtyard, you’ll encounter a cabinet brimming with home-made treats including the ever-popular pies in both classic mince and Guinness beef alongside a plethora of guilty indulgences: brioches, freshly baked cakes, muffins and anray of sweet and savoury scones. Fans of the former café‘s revered club sandwiches will be pleased to note that these have maintained pride of place at the new premises also.
For those who can afford a little more time when it comes to their breakfast routine, there’s the menu from which to choose something more substantial. The eggs benedict with house smoked salmon, potato hash for a hearty start to the day while the smashed avocado, served with two poached eggs and marmite is fresh alternative – both as satisfying as they are delicious.
There’s no denying the wholesome endeavour undertaken by the new residents of this tranquil corner, offering a serene café setting interrupted only by the busy comings and goings of the already regular patrons.
Close from 25th Dec till 8th January. Reopen on 9th January Monday from 7am till 15:30. And from 16th January will back to normal.
Wish everyone have a Merry Xmas and Happy New year
