Based on the glowing reviews, we headed straight to The Fine Food Store for our first meal in Sydney (lunch). While it was convenient to our hotel (Sydney Park Hyatt), I was taken back when we first walked in as it was nothing like what I expected. What I found was a cramped cafe with a few tables and a counter with chairs along a window that faced the back of other buildings.
Most of the tables were dirty with used plates and glasses still on them from previous guests. The servers only bring the food out to you as you need to place your order at the register. Sandwiches were fine but certainly nothing to write home about. While not horrible, this was by far the worst place we dined at during our entire stay in Sydney, no, make that during our entire stay in Australia.
Had I just happened to come upon The Fine Food Store by accident, not knowing the reviews posted on Tripadvisor, I would have definitely just passed it by. I suggest you do the same. There are simply too many better options than to waste your time (and money), here.
