The Fine Food Store

Member offer:

The Fine Food Store is a small and bustling independent café-deli in the centre of historic Stamford.

Family-run, it was founded by Jenny Fitzpatrick in 2004. Jenny is passionate about good food and top-quality service, and has created the perfect refuelling spot for both Stamford locals and visitors to this beautiful town.

Breakfast is served until 2pm and the menu is affordable, extensive and mouthwatering. Choose from the likes of The Big Breakfast (the full works, with free range, locally sourced eggs, bacon and sausages), Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes, or Fresh Fruit Muesli.

Lunch service starts at 11am and the choices are equally appealing, especially when you consider that everything is freshly prepared and many ingredients are locally sourced. The lunch menu includes a variety of gluten-free options.

The Fine Food Store offers a modern, warm, friendly environment, with professional service, superb coffee, wonderful homemade cakes and excellent sandwiches, all made with high quality ingredients.

In summer, the pretty enclosed rear courtyard is a wonderful place to have lunch.

    Visited with friend today and we ordered 2 pots of tea, 1 brownie and a toasted tea cake which was the biggest one I have had in a tea shop, butter in a pot also lovely jam.
    Staff excellant service and more than one person served us.

    Very busy little tea shop would definitely visit again.

    I took my mum here for an afternoon tea as a birthday treat, we both loved it. Such a great selection of sweet and savoury (plus presented beautifully) and staff were friendly and helpful, highly recommend!

    A regular stop off when in town. Beautiful coffee, wide variety of home made cakes which are always delicious, and huge portions. Sandwiches tasty and all in all good value. Only grouse is the one WC which is awkward to get to, and is in the way of staff coming and going. Don’t let that put you off, it’s a great place to visit.

    Usually busy – and for good reason!

    We are always in here and have been coming for years! Lovely little café. Always full on a Saturday (mainly because it’s so good!) but you can usually squeeze in. Really good breakfast and lunch menu. Cakes are delicious – homemade and different depending on which day it is! The chocolate Guinness cake is particularly good! The afternoon teas look amazing and are very popular. We haven’t tried one yet but can’t wait to! Staff always go the extra mile (got us some Guinness cake from downstairs when there wasn’t any in the chiller!). If you are in Stamford you definitely need to pay The Fine Food Store a visit.

    Beautiful independent coffee shop with great food. The afternoon teas are works of art. Went there recently for the new Autumn menu afternoon tea and it was amazing. The staff are always very friendly and happy to help. The garden is a secret gem on a sunny day.

    Thriving coffee shop in the middle of town with lovely enclosed garden. Friendly service, caters well for parents with children. Afternoon teas especially good.
