Stayed at Holiday Inn next door and very happy to discover this little gem. Great coffee and delicious food. Had breakfast here every morning. Reasonably priced and good selection

I had breakfast here three of the four days I was in Sydney. I really liked it. The fresh fruit salad is awesome. I had lunch once there and also perfect. Really good place and well located.

This trendy spot features delicious yet healthy food and one of the best coffee in Sydney. We've been there for breakfast and we were happy with the quality of the food and the friendly service!

We visited for Monday lunch which was a great idea because all the hipster crowds had gone to work and the tourists crowds seemed to have lightened after the weekend. I can happily recommend the club sandwich - really delish! The cocktails were also excellent....More

I went here for a coffee with a colleague for a quick break and we both liked it. Maybe next chance we'll stay for a lunch.

GREAT coffee! The barista team @ the Fine Food Store take making coffee seriously...enough to prepare a well-made flat white. Do find this sort of hidden spot on the brick road alley off (Kendall Lane) George Street next to the Holiday Inn Old Sydney.

We went there for breakfast and ordered 2 strong flat whites. The coffee came out overdrawn, burnt and watery. I am guessing the barista just ran water through the group head longer for that stronger flavour. Left without finishing coffee.

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.
