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.

Great little shop tucked away at The Rocks. Good food,service,value,would go back again. Menu was of good variety and hit the spot,the magic 3/4 coffee was one of the best I've had. Friendly staff and well priced.

“Nice place for a quick lunch”
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.

“Neighborhood Gem”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Despite the odd name, this little gem is well worth the visit - especially for breakfast. Tucked away at the far corner of a shopping area and facing outside to a small alley-way, this small restaurant serves, yes you guess it, fine food. I had breakfast and the menu had some interesting twists on tradition item. I had a poached egg in a bowl of spicy bakes beans. It was excellent.

I highly recommend this place as a unique alternative to the touristy traps of The Rocks.
