NAUGHTY OR NICE, BREAKFAST IS ALL ABOUT BALANCE AT THIS NOBBY BEACH FAVOURITE
Forreal’s owners sisters Shonel Alloway and Kylie Simpson are big believers in balance. Their organicwhere-possible breakfast menu caters for health nuts, vegans, the gluten-free as well as those looking for a bit of naughty stuff — sometimes they’re the same people, Shonel says. If you’re being good, the hot green prebiotic mess is a standout favourite: spinach, kale, broccolini, smashed avo, edamame and green beans salad topped with poached eggs. If you want French toast, it’s there alongside the Nutella banana pancakes topped with mascarpone, crushed Oreos and toasted hazelnuts. You can also choose from 12 smoothie bowls.
Forreal baristas Rebecca, Emily and Taahlia serve up a special house blend of Vittoria coffee with just about every milk and milk alternative you’ve ever thought of, including coconut and lactose-free. The signature cold brews are made in-house and bottled.
From $9 for eggs on toast to $20 for Mumma’s Big Breakfast. Regular flat white is $4.
It seems the weather is key to a premium perch at Forreal. You can find a seat indoors amid the cool wallpapered interior with its brilliant aquas and hot pink flamingoes, or opt for under the umbrellas on the footpath where you can watch the street life of Nobbys pass you by.
