We always visit Elk Cafe for breakfast when staying in Broadbeach. Food is healthy and fresh with good quick service and reasonably priced.

Waited 20minutes or so for a table, great atmosphere, staff on the ball and friendly! Could not fault the coffee or food, totally delish! But the thick shake was a step above everything!! Would go back for that alone! Great experience!!
