How handy is this? Here’s a huge fresh food store, with a cafe on site which has it’s 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 have 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.

I must confess that I have only been here for coffee so far, so much return to eat with the family. And I must take some photos inside the shop as it’s laid out very beautifully. It’s a very high end grocer, with marvellous displays of fruit and veg, excellent cheeses and deli goods.
