Lovely ! Would recommend!!

Very nice food and staff. Only negative was that the food was quite a bit more expensive if you sit in rather than take away. A small increase is understandable but it's quite big. Anyway that doesn't put me off because the food is delicious and the staff are very nice !

Love Rocket - great little cafe with tex-mex style food. Lots of salads and imaginative sandwich ideas. Packed on the weekends. Nice cakes and coffees too, and there has always been a GF option when we've been there. Recommended the baked sweet potatoes and the Rocket club sandwich.

This place had a good selection of food. I had a smoothie and cake. The smoothie was fine could have done with more berries in there but fine. The cake brownie was nice soft moist rich but light. The only thing I would say was the service wasn't the most friendly or inviting. There is lots of places where the... More

We came here for a quick lunch and was treated by very friendly staff. The cafe has a very nice ambience and rustic feel, which compliments it's menu items. I had the soup of the day (Red Pepper and Paprika) which was to die for, and my companion had the turkey, chilli jam, Brie and rocket toasted ciabatta sandwich which... More

After the monotony of groundhog day in Napier's Jack Kilby PC lab for months on end writing a dissertation I sampled Rockets awesomeness out of sheer boredom at the 'same old same old'. The story starts at Tesco meal deal sandwich counter... Id tried everything and although value is the name of the game I needed more! How many unsatisfactory... More

My wife and went in for a bowl of soup and a cake today. The soup was cajun sweet potato - really beautiful with a couple of chunky wholemeal lumps of bread. Coffee and tea were consumed with a slice of plum and raspberry cake - very nice indeed.

We chose this cafe to have breakfast on Sunday morning and I doubt we could've have chosen better! They offered a great range of breakfast options, from full cooked to pancakes to French toast, and loads in between. They also offered gluten free bread for toast, which is not often found in cafes elsewhere. Service was friendly but efficient and... More

Popped in for a couple of drinks and cakes, reasonably priced at £7 for the lot. Friendly and helpful staff, nicely decorated inside, clean toilets. Other food looked very tempting!
