“Great eats downtown!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The Rocket is a great place for quick but different type of lunch. They have fresh quinao or couscous salads, meats and specials for the day. The prices are really good too, the two of us ate for under $20. Highly recommend it!

“Loved everything about this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We ate breakfast and lunch here a few times on our recent trip to St. John's. It's a friendly space in a beautiful old building with great food. You really can't ask for a better casual place in St. John's.

“Cool Atmosphere, Not So Cool Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I have been to rocket a couple of times, each time having hope that it will be better than the last. However each time my boyfriend and I go it is quite disappointing. I must say, their breads are very lovely, along with the majority of their pastries and other desserts. However their food as a whole is very disappointing.

We had some great breakfasts here .Granola with yougart and blueberries was delicious. Coffee and baked goods were also very good. All fresh and baked on site. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A great spot for light foods.

“awesome spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Great atmosphere, and the coffee is excellent. Had quiche and a fish cake, both were delicious, and a decent price.
