Although Paleo Cafe is a franchise and so 90% of the menu is the same as in Sydney, the one in Burleigh was a convenient 10-minute walk away from where we were staying. It’s bigger than the Bondi Junction branch as you can see in the photo below.
Our breakfast started off with coffee: long black, almond milk flat white and signature iced coffee (espresso mixed with almond and coconut milk, topped with coconut coffee ice cream, honey and cacao nibs).

They have a couple $10 breakfast specials, including the classic bacon & eggs with free-range eggs, your choice of regular or nitrate-free bacon, sautéed spinach, herb-roasted tomato and Paleo toast. Below is one served with nitrate-free bacon and one with smoked bacon and avocado instead of tomato. The toast was on the cakey side, but it was nice anyway.

We also ordered the eggs Benny (poached free-range eggs, sliced avocado, cherry tomatoes, creamy hollandaise on Paleo English muffin), plus extra pulled pork.

Service was friendly and fast. If you’re on the go, you can pick one of their takeaway meals or a protein bar.
