Disappointing breakfast. Smoked salmon breakfast came with a chunk of iceberg lettuce and gluggy aioli. Breakfast smoothly super sweet and not pleasant. Nice coffee but very small. One staff member who was less than friendly to say the least. Wouldn’t recommend.

This is a must visit if you are in The Rocks and NEED a coffee! Really good! Whilst we didn't eat here, the meals looked fantastic too.

Good choice for breakfast or lunch. The process for ordering and sitting down to eat is a little chaotic , but it’s worth it

Great place for a cafe style lunch in Sydney, in the heart of the tourist area! Food was great and they were really accomodating for our little one, slightly altering the dishes so she'd be happy. Only bug bear is that it's not table service,...More

Caught up with a friend here for breakfast. Good selection on the menu for breakfast. The smoked salmon was delicious! Food was reasonably price considering it’s at the rocks where there are lots of tourist. Food service came out quick. Staff were friendly. Thanks us...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

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.
