Thanks for pointing that out, I'll correct it shortly.
You are correct, the above get call would return an eloquent model, which isn't ideal. If I were to take this code example further, I would create a domain class for User that is completely independent from Eloquent, and then translate from it to the Eloquent model inside the repository.
