How handy is this? Here’s a huge fresh food store, with a cafe on site which has its own playground right beside the seating area.
Forestway Fresh is a family-run food business, long-established and much appreciated by Belrose and Terrey Hills locals.
The Polistina family has been running the shop for 35 years. It is now expanded and I think this is a venue well worth travelling to; you can shop, have a meal and let the kids play, all in one location.
I might mention that we live and my kids go to school nearby, so I’ve been driving up Forest Way to where Mona Vale meets i and popping in for my fresh food shopping for years.
