Elk, 16 Chelsea Ave, Broadbeach, QLD 4218, Ph: 0755922888
Date of Review: 10 April 2014
Within a short walking distance of the ocean, but not within ocean views, Elk is an eclectic mix of retro and homemade love. The decor is quirky but stylish and the vibe is warm and welcoming. Unless you know about it, Elk would be hard to find as it is tucked away from other popular cafes in Broadbeach down a residential side street. There is indoor seating and limited outdoor seating - the only downside was that our table seemed to be perpetually surrounded by flies.
After enquiring what could be made gluten free, it turned out pretty much everything could (including the burgers!), plus they stock delicious gluten free bread. I had heard rave reviews about the coffee, so started with my signature latte, which did not disappoint. For my main, I opted for the scallop salad, which was substantial and delicious. The creativity of flavours worked well together.
The lunch menu is reasonably priced with the more expensive options being around the mid-20 mark.
TOTAL SCORE: 24/30 or 80%
