Enter- Foundry Cafe. I saw a lot of buzz about this spot on Twitter over the past month, who describe themselves as a “kitchen, roastworks and craft bar”. I didn’t check it out earlier because that description made it sound like a bar and tapas kind of place, but after seeing their amazing menu on Jozi’s Foodie Fix I realised that I was very mistaken!
I immediately made a reservation for this past Saturday and loooooved it.
The restaurant is much bigger than I thought it would be, since most eating spots in the Parkhurst/ Parktown North area are teeny. I think alot of the time we sacrifice ambiance for food- or vice versa. This restaurant has both, in abundance! I would describe the menu as mostly italian, but not the normal huge range of pizza and pasta that you’ll find at your average italian spot. The menu changes every month with dishes to suit everyone’s taste- including quite a few meat dishes.
The drawcard of Foundry is probably the craft beer selection. I don’t drink beer myself, but the men at the table were super excited about this offering. The restaurant also has a bar area, but it’s separated from the eating area so you don’t even see it.
