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.

Dined here for lunch with the family on our 4 day stay in Sydney. Within a few steps of the Holiday Inn and from the street the food looked good. They do run out of menu options during busy times like when we were there so have a back up pick just in case. Here you order and pay first and than they give you a number where they deliver the food. Store/restaurant is small with limited seating but we happened to find a small table for my wife and I and our 2 yo. I ordered the pumpkin/artichoke/hummus with fecocia bread, The sandwich was good but the pumpkin was pickled and seared which was different. Also the texture was hard. Otherwise a good sandwich. My wife ordered the bacon/avacado sandwich and was good. We finally ordered fresh fruit with yogurt/honey for our daughter. All in all a good hip style restaurant in Sydney and would come again if locals.

The coffee was excellent and so was the food. Some of us had the spicy beans with lamb sausage, or bacon or poached eggs, others had the fruit spelt with handmade butter or ciabatta. The service was effeicent and helpful.

We stayed in Sydney for 4 nights and had breakfast here three times! It's delicious, fresh, interesting and reasonably priced with great coffee! Def try the spicy beans and add some chorizo - yum!

Went to this cafe under the direction of trip advisor review. What a disappointment!
Lunch with our family of three was pretty average. Tables were dirty and service poor to say the least. Would not recommend or return to waste my money..

Definitely worthy of the high praise its received. Panini is incredible and spicy beans are in a league of their own. Do it.
