Elk Espresso is always a must do for me when visiting the Gold Coast. Coffee is great and the food menu is exceptional. Staff are friendly and efficient. Only downside is how busy they are - be prepared to wait for a table on weekends.

I think I've spent too long living in my coffee and breakfast bubble, loving my usual eateries in Worcester - which, although still unsurpassed for their coffee's, I'm learning are lagging behind in their breakfasts... Elk Espressos coffee was good (very good in fact) but the breakfast burger was a very bad (in a very good) way to start the... More

Lovely brunch, plenty of menu items, good service. Fresh quality produce. It is noisy but in a vibrant happy way.

We've been here countless times over the years... Have never had this issue but have noticed the last 2times we've been here this year (2017) they've been inconsistent with taking orders and their meals. We've tried adding an extra fried egg to our burger (which we've done before in the past) and the waitress who was quite rude saying "no... More

Fantastic, food, service and great area of space. Definitely check it out. Fat and prompt service. Even though I was on a wait list once I arrived.

I think most brunch places serve almost the same things ..... slices of avocado, bacon, hash,,,,, I'm not impressed by their food however their waitresses and waiters are very helpful and nice.

The food here was amazing! We had the breakfast burger and the potato hash. I would definitely recommend both and if your really hungry get the iced coffee with icecream AND cream. There was about a 15 min wait for the table, though to me that shows they are very popular. The service was great with very quick orders and... More

With so much competition in the market these days when you go out for brunch on a Monday and the cafe is full you know your onto a winner. After a 10min wait we were seated and ordered our meals. I tried the breaky burger with a coffee and it was good. I think the better choice would of been... More

A lovely little hipster joint with a really solid, creative menu. One of the best brunch/breakfast meals I’ve had on the Gold Coast. This is the kind of place you’d only find via online search engines or word of mouth… it’s location is nowhere near Broadbeach’s other dining establishments. The place is bigger than it looked from the outside and... More

This place is very very good. I've been a few times and the coffee is usually on point. Today we went and it was busy! We were pushed around slightly to start and ended up at a high table by the coffee machine. We just took what we could get. My very green salad was just right. With a side... More
