CAFE SURF­ING

NAUGHTY OR NICE, BREAK­FAST IS ALL ABOUT BAL­ANCE AT THIS NOBBY BEACH FAVOURITE

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - EAT EYE - WORDS: DENISE RAWARD

For­real’s own­ers sis­ters Shonel Al­loway and Kylie Simp­son are big be­liev­ers in bal­ance. Their or­gan­icwhere-pos­si­ble break­fast menu caters for health nuts, ve­g­ans, the gluten-free as well as those look­ing for a bit of naughty stuff — some­times they’re the same peo­ple, Shonel says. If you’re be­ing good, the hot green pre­bi­otic mess is a stand­out favourite: spinach, kale, broc­col­ini, smashed avo, edamame and green beans salad topped with poached eggs. If you want French toast, it’s there along­side the Nutella ba­nana pan­cakes topped with mas­car­pone, crushed Oreos and toasted hazel­nuts. You can also choose from 12 smoothie bowls.

For­real baris­tas Re­becca, Emily and Taahlia serve up a spe­cial house blend of Vit­to­ria cof­fee with just about ev­ery milk and milk al­ter­na­tive you’ve ever thought of, in­clud­ing co­conut and lac­tose-free. The sig­na­ture cold brews are made in-house and bot­tled.

From $9 for eggs on toast to $20 for Mumma’s Big Break­fast. Reg­u­lar flat white is $4.

It seems the weather is key to a pre­mium perch at For­real. You can find a seat in­doors amid the cool wall­pa­pered in­te­rior with its bril­liant aquas and hot pink flamin­goes, or opt for un­der the um­brel­las on the foot­path where you can watch the street life of Nob­bys pass you by.
