We visited Elk Espresso on one very hot, very sunny morning. A nice walk stroll down the boardwalk and before we knew it, we were at Elk. As was every other Gold Coast resident. The place was absolutely PACKED. We put our name on the wait list - we were told this would be 15 minutes. 15 to 20 minutes later, we were seated. The venue has a cute and quirky laid back cool about it and had amazing wall art, as seen above.

We ordered our go to beverage of choice; a long black with almond milk and no sugar, to enjoy, while perusing the menu. Our allergies mean that any meals we order require careful examination and result in us asking the wait staff about ingredients. Annoying? Kind of! But after questioning our waiter, we both decided on the Very Green Salad and we were not disappointed! 

The wait for out meals was quite long; about 45 minutes after we finished our coffees. However, the waiter who took it upon himself to locate our lost meals was extremely helpful in rushing the kitchen to ensure we were fed after the initial confusion! Shout out to @rennyholder!
The meal was absolutely fantastic and definitely explained the long line of eager guests. 

We rate this 4/5 stars, only because 2 hours was a bit of a long breakfast for us!
