I have been coming to the Fine Food Store for over 2 years now and very much enjoy it. I think they make the best Almond Milk Chai Latte in Sydney! The only thing I don't like are the pigeons that sometimes roam about inside...More

Service on a Sunday mid morning was terribly slow. Coffee was mediocre. The pulled brisket was dry and definitely not tender. The salmon was tasteless, lacking overall appeal.

So I'd done my research of breakfast cafes close to the hotel and that opened early (ie 7am). Definitely worth the walk over ... whilst the staff were functional, and not overly helpful or interactive - the FOOD and coffee definitely speak for themselves. We...More

Lunch after doing the Bridge Climb - really good quality food. Much of it organic etc if you are into that kind of thing, but importantly very freshly prepared on site, with a good range of drinks (including nice beers). Even a couple of visiting...More

The Fine Food Store serves good breakfast and lunch menu in The Rocks. Healthy breakfast, but flavorful and tasty. The Iced coffee was good as well. Complete your visit to The Rocks with The Fine Food Store.

I ordered the halloumi salad which came with quinoa and couscous along with the various vegetables. It was incredible. The rest of my family also had great food - I could eat here every day.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

Tucked away on Kendall lane, the oldest laneway in The Rocks, The Fine Food Store has been a much-loved favourite of locals for over 10 years. Recently revealing its Brooklyn-inspired renovation, this cool and contemporary cafe offers a succinct menu of fresh and tasty offerings from braised-pork sliders to salmon gravlax with fennel salad. They pride themselves on the highest standard in coffee, from cold brewed to single origin espresso - to be enjoyed at a picturesque window seat or to-go when you're on the run.
