The Fine Food Store


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

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.

Consistency of good food in this place. Still think a shame they can't take orders at the table - given the prices (and yes went on a Sunday again - so presume whoever paying got stung with the 10% surcharge). BUT good menu and good...More

We arrived to a fairly busy café, which almost had no staff. It was unclear if we had to wait to be seated or if we could just sit anywhere. After 10 minutes of no assistance we sat at a free table. We looked over...More

We had the lamb kofta and the ham and cheese toastie. Both were very tasty and reasonable size portions. Service was a bit haphazard.

I think this is the pick of breakfast cafes in The Rocks. It has a lovely atmosphere and decor. The menu is imaginative and extensive. My daughter had the beans which were spicier than she would have liked for breakfast but that’s an individual thing....More

Considering the cafes in Sydney and the standard. We found this over priced and the food below par considering how expensive it was. There are better cafes in the rocks to enjoy

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
