Description: 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. Now open nights, Weds to Sat from 4 to 10pm serving tapas style bar plates, select wine & tap beer.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had breakfast here every day of our stay at Sydney. It's right next door to the Holliday inn at the rocks. The food was very delicious. They were very accommodating as my daughter has many food allergies. She especially loved their gluten free toast with jam. Their prices were on par with rest of Sydney which to say it was expensive. Overall a great place to grab some grub.

“Nice place for a quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

My sisters and I visited The Fine Food store on a weekday lunchtime and it was quite quiet. They offer a nice selection of food and drinks, with us trying the lasagne, moussaka and falafel wrap. My wrap was excellent, very fresh and tasty. The lasagne portion was very generous and tasted really nice as well. The moussaka was a bit a of a let down as it was quite spicy, not something you'd necessarily expect from this dish.

The service was prompt and good, apart from us probably sitting in the wrong area with a waitress leaning over my sister every 5 mins to put water on the shelf. All in all though, in expensive Sydney, this is a good place to have a reasonable, tasty lunch.
