Fast beautifully presented food and lots of it for a reasonable price. Atmosphere excellent for casual dining with or without children

Creamy Mushrooms and Bacon, with two soft poached eggs on really soft thick bread. $20.50 Quick service, super yum food, looks good. Was kind of pricey but the food was excellent. Probably more of a treat rather than a regular breakfast spot. Will be back...More

Went to foundation bar for dinner for my brothers birthday, being Fieldays we knew it was going to be busy however unfortunately the service was terrible & the food seemed to take a long time. Several of our dishes were disappointing to say the least....More

We have eaten here on quite a few occasions and the food is consistently good. For a snack with your drink try the blue cheese pizza bread, totally yum!

Although we have to wait for a while for the meals to be served, the food was worth it! Best tasting wedges of all time! Try the fried chicken and the ribs. Oh the ribs. Heavenly.

Great pizza and good beer selection. Pizza is not wood fire so looses a few points there but very tasty never the less. It's on the upper end price wise but not too bad...
