Fine Food Store, The Rocks, Sydney

Guest blogger edition

Birthdays only come once a year so it's best to spend it doing something you really enjoy, and for me that's hanging out with loved ones and eating nice foods. On this gorgeous Saturday morning, we had plans to visit Taronga Zoo and so decided to eat around the Rocks area before catching the Ferry there. A quick search online saw the Fine Food Store pop up as a popular breakfast spot in the area and so we ventured there. Not an easy place to find, but the Rocks area is a fun place to walk around on weekends anyways, bustling with tourists, markets and historic architecture. We eventually found our way to the cafe which is located at the ground floor at the very end of the Rocks centre. 

Funky decor makes the place quite cozy and the cafe doubles as a gourmet grocer with interesting items on sale around the shelves. There is seating outside but we chose to sit inside near the window where it became a tad warm during our time there.

A decent menu with not too many crazy options but enough variety to satisfy everyone I think. We placed our orders at the counter, grabbed our number and before too long, our food and coffee was delivered to our table.

Chicken Chorizo on turkish with caramelised onion, roma tomato and Sicilian salsa ($12.50) - nicely toasted, and flavours were there. A bit small on the portion - would have loved to have more chorizo

Homemade spicy beans with poached eggs, and chimichurri on sourdough bread ($12.5) - generous serving of beans and eggs poached to perfection. Slight spiciness to the dish.

Coffees ($3.50 ea)

A pretty cool place to have breakfast if you are in the area.

We have been writing about food in Sydney since 2009. No place is too far or too wide for us to travel to visit. We always give an honest opinion and love to hear your comments too. Here's to an ever-growing society of foodies!
