Coffee snobs like us will already be familiar with the likes of Skal in Peregian Beach. But, have you seen it lately?
Months ago, Skal Coffee was primarily an outdoor cafe with plenty of benches to hang on and umbrellas to perch under. Coffees, slices and some of those most delish smoothie bowls you’ll find anywhere, were served from a pop-up like workspace that sat at the front of fruit shop, The Bent Banana. But, not anymore.
With news that The Bent Banana was vacating their beachside nook earlier in the year, it seemed like the sanest thing in the world that Skal would take over the whole space and expand.
Since late April, the folks behind Skal, Kirk and Kel, have been hard at work turning their coffee stop into a fully-fledged cafe, complete with indoor seating and a kitchen to pump out dishes off a satisfying brunch menu. There were concrete floors to polish, pendant lights to hang, and a whole lotta new coffee offerings to master—think: chemex.
But—and you may as well get a drumroll on for this—the time has finally come. All revamped and looking better than ever, Skal has re-opened and is ready for you. Yes, you! So, we suggest getting in there asap because the sooner you do, the sooner you will make your way through their winter offerings. And that, my friends, can only be a good thing.
From stomach-warming buckwheat and banana hotcakes to a breakfast bao filled with lamb belly, bacon, fried egg and chutney, there’s no way you’ll leave feeling hungry or disappointed, especially when you wash it down with a hot cup of Padre Coffee. Oh, and for those of you who have crushed on Skal’s acai or cacao or peanut butter smoothie bowls for, like, ever, you’ll be pleased to know they haven’t gone anywhere.
Open seven days, do yourself (your belly, your mind, your everything) a favour, and get on in to check out the new Skal.
