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.

Why eat hotel breakfasts when there are cafes like this around. Loved my blueberry butcher muesli in a jar. And the coffee was good strength and hot.

Tried The Fine Food Store this morning for brekky. Gotta say I love this place - friendly vibe and the food is tasty and is a notch above your standard cafe fare. Great presentation and smart flavour combinations. The coffee is a lovely smooth caramelly blend - hard to find fault really.

After a very disappointing breakie in sydney on our first day here, we decided to go down to the rocks and find the fine food store. We got there quite early, easy to get a seat. Great coffee, lovely breakfasts,I had spicy beans with poached eggs and pesto, the other options chosen by friends were just as yummy. Lovely relaxing ambience - worth finding it on our google map and great location right beside the markets . Great prices too.

I really wanted to like this place more but it's the second time I was there and the second time I was disappointed. The place itself is really sweet and interesting, however the food is just below average. First time I had the stuffed eggplant which sounded fantastic on the menu but was blant, not warm enough and had some hard bits in it. Today I chose poached eggs with toast, butter and spinach. I got rocket instead of the spinach which was quite disappointing and just a tiny bit of butter. the bread was nothing special either. My partner ordered a shrimp cocktail sandwich which was basically a roll with shrimp, mayo and some salad and very bland. I have to say the coffee was quite good, but not hot enough. It feels like somebody with a good sense for interiors and creativity has designed the café but they miss a proper chef. It seems like a hobby cook is trying things s/he isn't realy good at. Such a shame.

Food is great for breakfast and a bargain for the quality. Full of locals which says a lot in this tourist location. Atmosphere is quirky and fun. Don't miss it, especially if you stay at the overpriced Holiday Inn right next door.
