The Rocket is my all-time favourite cafe in St. John's. Everything on the menu is delicious, fresh, and prepared with care. Their desserts are out of this world. Try the pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting (it's a special item around around October, for Thanksgiving and Hallowe'en). They also have hands-down the best ginger cookie I've ever tasted.

I can't say enough about this place. It is located on the Water Street in town so we had passed it several times. The outside is bright and welcoming, with several large windows. We walked in and were welcomed by a busy array of people grabbing coffee, baked break, sweets and meals. On one size is the actual purchasing area,... More

My sandwich was just OK. I thought it would be outstanding, due to all the reviews. It wasn't very filling, too much bread, and nothing came with it. Just ok. The mocha was quite good, so coffee is recommended here!

We enjoyed the coffee and the food so much we stopped in more than once and even went back and got some of their fabulous sandwiches for the long plane ride home.

My other favourite place to visit whenever I'm in St. John's now. One of the few places I can get an excellent almond milk tea latte. Excellent location, wonderful to see this place as a community centre in the heart of downtown St. John's. Great place to work, hang out, meet friends or grab lunch. Open late regularly which is...

Our experience at Rocket was memorable all the way around, so much so that we went there three times while in St. John's. The food was great...loved the breakfast croissants, chicken pot pie, pulled pork turnovers, cinnamon buns, and more, plus the coffee was great! We were treated warmly by the staff, as well. And be sure to go on... More

Love the interior. Great place to relax, chat with friends over a meal, or have latte and a treat! There are lunch/dinner options, bakes goods, coffee/tea/lattes, friendly atmosphere, etc. Fun decor!

It's not often you go into a cafe and you feel that everything is right but this is one of those places. It mixes excellent coffee, fabulous home-baking, a superb food selection and a laid-back atmosphere. The coffee was some of the best espresso, no scratch that, was the best espresso I've had in Canada. Well balanced and the server... More

From breakfast to lunch, to packing a lunch for a hike - we were there all the time. Amazing desserts, and foccacia breads, wraps and sandwiches, different and healthy salads, amazing cappuccinos, and all served by friendly people and fast service. A well organized and thought out operation. A little pricey, but worth eating fresh and healthy and different options... More

What a great plea to recover from a night on George Street! Great coffee - the best I have had. Pastries are awesome and the breakfast choices hit the spot. I cringe when seeing those who are able sit in the window on the pillows with the short table!! :-)
