Read some fantastic reviews so had to visit. Dined in for breakfast and the service was incredibly quick despite it being busy. Coffee was great. Breakfast panini was really good and I would definitely recommend it. Quaint little place in The Rocks definitely worth visiting!

Found this food cafe in the Rocks area. Called in for breakfast before the bridge climb. Tucked down an ally way. Friendly helpful staff. Great location. Breakfast was excellent along with the coffee. Great tasting coffee. Highly recommended for a visit.

Recently while in Sydney on vacation, we stopped into the fine food store for lunch and we were very disappointed. The staff bordered on being rude, and the food was way overpriced and just average. There are many very good restaurants in Sydney, but this is not one of them.

Popped in for lunch as was in the rocks and wanted something healthy that wouldn't break the bank. Went for a salad bowl with added poached chicken. Didn't think to ask what was in it but when it came was delicious. A mixture of grains including quinoa and with chickpeas and other items with a dressing that lifted the whole... More

top notch food - nice selection on menu. Visited for a quick breakfast just after they opened - reasonably priced, nice coffee and good selection of food and drink. they do lack fresh juices and smoothies which would be a welcome addition though.$4.50 coffee - I would be spoilt living in Sydney over Perth!

Good place for a coffee and a quick, filling breakfast. The avo and ricotta on toast is a great start to the day.

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.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
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 weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
