The Fine Food Store is a standout cafe in The Rocks. It can be found just near the Discovery Museum on a quiet cobblestoned lane and is the place to go if you need a great coffee and perhaps an amazing menu on the side. Sensory Lab coffee is The Fine Food Store’s own coffee – my double shot flat white hit the spot. There is a delicatessen feel to the place with many condiments and gourmet products for sale on the shelves. The menu is huge and the variety and quality of the food is amazing. In fact , during the week the local work force in the know find themselves here again and again. On this wet and rainy sunday the place is packed but the service is efficient and our breakfasts delicious – baked mushroom with gruyere and salsa verde, and spicy tomato with poached eggs.
The full-length bar running along the lane-side offers large windows and an airy outlook (also good for people-watching -lot’s of curious passers-by). The decor is interesting, highlighted by large woven pendant lights and nice large communal table options. Easily one of the best cafe options in The Rocks.
