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.

My cousin and I enjoyed breakfast here recently, it was a Saturday morning and the place was packed. The food was fantastic - healthy, fresh, and good value. It's not a quiet place but it's in a great location for exploring this historic part of Sydney. Markets are held each weekend in the Rocks. Would definitely come back.

Nestled in The Rocks area of Sydney at the corner of Kendall and Mill Lanes, The Fine Food Store caters to all taste buds.

Our family ordered a variety of dishes, but due to the timing of our arrival, some of the salad options were not available. There was a minor glitch in the servining of one salad at our table and another table, but an acceptable solution was determined, and everyone was full by the time we had completed the meal.

It's a challenge between arriving in a timely fashion to avoid the mass crowds, since it is a very popular area, and arriving to make sure that the food that you order is currently available. If you don't mind substitutions, then you are fine. If you don't, then I would recommend that you think about alternative food stuffs when ordering at the counter.

Also, as a customer, keep in mind that staff sometimes get fatigued, just like we do. It's a very busy place, with constant demands on the staff. As a traveller, one must exercise patience! :)

Really cool place, kinda hard to find but we didn't mind really. Counter service was great, food prepared quickly and delivered right to us. Great coffee. Food was great too. I think we had breakfast sandwiches which were really, really good. Would definitely return for breakfast or coffee.

After a morning walk my wife and I stumbled across the Fine Food Store. Nicely location at the Rocks the cafe opens early and provides a difficult food menu, not over the top, more interesting and a step away from the traditional bacon and eggs. We had a lovely time sitting out the front and just watching the world pass by. A good location and definitely worth a try.
