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.

“Fresh, yummy and FREE wi-fi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Found this place wandering around in the Rocks and so glad we did. It's tucked away in the back of the Rocks Center. We were staying in Circular Quay, this was a 10 min. walk from out hotel. Great place for breakfast or lunch, delicious coffee and there is free wi-fi, which is hard to find in Australia. Highly recommend.

“Hip little cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

Hidden in the Rocks, The Fine Food Store cooks a great breakfast. The baked beans received a great review however I found them a little spicy so early in the morning.

Great coffee and a good selection of breakfast options.

“All my favourite food under one roof!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

This place has my favourite brand of coffee (Campos), my favourite tea (T2), my favourite chocolate (Max Brenner), and my favourite olive oil (Pukkah Estate). It's like they made this place for me!
I had a quinoa and brown rice salad that was awesome. Definitely coming back here.

“Best coffee in The Rocks!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

Best breakie so far & best coffee I've had since being in Sydney. Am a self proclaimed coffee snob who has been trying all the coffee in The Rocks in the last 3 days. This is the BEST!!!

“A hidden gem amongst The Rocks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

We turned up to The Rocks Markets this morning. And decent cafes to have a nice breakfast seemed to be in very short supply. So I asked a friendly stall holder for advice and she directed us to this hidden gem.

It is down the back of The Rocks Centre. It was busy but I didn't feel rushed or in the way of other diners. I felt like I was in a little Sanctuary away from the crazy city.

My garlic aioli poached egss were fabulous. My husband was happy with his scrambled eggs. I read a supplied paper whilst waiting for the food to arrive.

If you are in the area, try it. It was a fabulous find for us.
