The health hub is out to prove nu­tri­tious food doesn’t have to lack flair and flavour, with a menu rich in gluten-free, veg­e­tar­ian, ve­gan and pa­leo op­tions. Co-owner Se­lasi Berdie says the stand­outs in­clude buck­wheat and ba­nana pan­cakes with wild berry com­pote, ve­gan hon­ey­comb and dairy-free co­conut ice cream; healthy eggs benny with ham and spinach on a choice of toast; and the sig­na­ture Navajo na­tive break­fast of eggs, beans, avo and tomato salsa on na­tive flat­bread. Eggs are free-range, the ba­con ni­trate-free, the beef is grass­fed ... you get the pic­ture. BSKT’s cof­fee is its own smooth house blend with a three bean se­lec­tion im­ported from South Amer­ica and Ethiopia and roasted at Burleigh Heads. It’s fair trade ap­proved and eth­i­cally sourced. Rang­ing from a Co­cowhip bowl at $14 to the Bush­man’s Break­fast for $21. A stan­dard flat white is $4. Seat­ing op­tions abound at BSKT. There’s the beach­side un­der­cover area fea­tur­ing an en­closed play area for kids, pop­u­lar with par­ents; sunny north-fac­ing side­walk ta­bles, per­fect for win­ter; shady west-fac­ing street ta­bles, cool and breezy for sum­mer; in­side ta­bles that pick up the buzz of the cafe; and a pur­pose-built cy­clists’ area with bike racks pro­vided. There’s also a yoga stu­dio up­stairs.
