Good selection of food, and clearly serious about coffee. We had fruit salad and honey granola for breakfast. Both were simple but done very well, not too crunchy, a good mix and all very fresh. Would definitely visit again.

My breakfast arrived in good time and was delicious. The coffee was a tad strong but hot! My friends returned their wraps because they were cold, the food was good but we didn't get to eat together, I'm. Thinking this place has lost its mojo!...More

It is easy to walk past The Fine Food Store. Even with the front door open you can't see much until you go inside. Its looks quiet from the outside but is always bustling with people. Everything we have from the breakfast menu is excellent...More

We've had breakfast here the first two mornings of our trip, and can't imagine why we'd eat anywhere else. The poached eggs special and the pumpkin and feta dish are both fantastic, and my daughter raves about the Belgian Waffles. Service is friendly and fast....More

The avocado toast dish was excellent but $3.50 for one poached egg seemed high. Quesadilla was ok but but the cheese wasn't melted and the tortillas were unlike anything I've ever known as such. Tea was.not very hot bit served in a nice iron teapot....More

I had breakfast here three of the four days I was in Sydney. I really liked it. The fresh fruit salad is awesome. I had lunch once there and also perfect. Really good place and well located.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighborhood 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.
