Located at The Cove at Oyster Point, Foundry & Lux is a casual yet chic restaurant complex.

The space includes a café for morning coffee and lighter fare; a wide range of options in the main dining area for lunch; and a lounge with a bar and wood-burning pizza oven.

The space also includes a number of complimentary amenities for guests, including bowling lanes, pool tables, bocce ball, outdoor seating around a fireplace, and more. An onsite edible garden will also grow produce that will be used in the dishes, and influence the menu throughout the seasons.

The name Foundry & Lux has historical ties to South San Francisco’s past — when cattle and steel ruled the growing region. The theme also ties into the space’s aesthetic components, which incorporate rustic reclaimed wood and steel with luxurious design touches.



The café offers a coffee and espresso bar, fresh-squeezed juices, soft serve yogurt, pastries, and lighter grab-and-go fare like sandwiches, wraps, salads, and small bites. With eclectic decor, flexible seating, and cozy nooks for hiding out, the café invites informal meetings with colleagues or a quiet respite from office life.


Main Dining

Watch the chefs in action as they create made-to-order artisan sandwiches, salads made with fresh produce from local farms, along with meats from our grill and rotisserie paired with select seasonal side dishes. Eclectic menu items inspired by global cuisines change regularly. A mix of communal tables and more intimate seating makes the space perfect for large groups or for one on one meals.


Bar and Lounge

Stop in for happy hour, stay for a game! Local wines, craft beer, small bites, wood-fired pizzas, a pair of bowling lanes, pool table, big screen TVs, indoor and outdoor fireplace seating and access to outdoor recreation areas make it a great place to unwind and a playground for grown-ups.


The name Foundry & Lux was inspired by various aspects of South San Francisco’s past. In the mid 1800s, Charles Lux partnered with cattleman Henry Miller to purchase several thousand acres of land in Baden, which is now known South San Francisco. Together they formed the firm Miller & Lux, which eventually became the greatest cattle empire in California. The word Foundry is a direct nod to South San Francisco’s “Industrial City” past, which is a motto that was immortalized in 1923 by a huge sign on a hillside overlooking the city. That history included a wide range of iron and steel plants, smelting precious metals, and even shipbuilding during World War II, all of which included the use of foundries.
