Last Friday night we braved school traffic and peak hour traffic to take out little family to the beach for the weekend. I won’t lie to you, I was not feeling overly keen about the 3 1/2 hour drive. Thankfully, just like in all good fairy tales, after a long trip, we stumbled upon something amazing in the Forrest.
The Forrest Brewing Company.
A little oasis of a restaurant/ cafe in the small, scenic township of Forrest. The restaurant serves delicious, informal, locally sourced food and works equally well as a cafe or a restaurant.
I should know, I tested out the coffee and cake on my way home too. It was my birthday after all.
The service was casual but prompt, helpful and very friendly. The restaurant decor was cosy, interesting and comfortable. (I loved the option of crochet blankets for cold knees). There is also a large outdoor seating area that I long to hang out at in the warmer months.
The views were adorable and so was the restaurant.
I ordered the Sumac grilled cauliflower steak, with house made baba ghanoush, chargrilled zucchini, pumpkin, talegggio cheese, olive tapenade and fresh greens. $21
I loved every gluten free, vegetarian mouthful!
Mr eatmystreet ordered the Reuben Sanga with corned silverside, swiss cheese, house-made mustard, sauerkraut, cornichon salad and sourdough bread. $19
The children ordered off the kids menu $8 with varying degrees of success.
There were quite a few other options I would have happily chosen from the menu. To take a look at the menu visit the Forrest Brewing Company website.
Overall we had an excellent dinner and we all left the restaurant feeling a little happier. Which to me is the mark of a great dining venue.
