In the Rocks area and a very informal community table set up where you order at the counter. Nice Aussie type menu. Nothing high gourmet.

The challenge with the Fine Food store is finding it - its at the corner of two lanes in the Rocks district - a quiet location that is best found using google maps. Alternatively if you can find the Holiday Inn, the Rocks walk down...More

Had lunch here and would recommend. Nice light avocado and citrus salad with strawberry lemonade, just what I needed on a hot day in town. Lots of space, staff a bit thin on the ground, our waitress never stopped moving.

Hidden away in a laneway but worth seeking out for a quality breakfast. Has a menu more interesting than the standard fare in the nearby tourist traps on George Street.

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.
