“Cozy Social Gathering Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Loved it when it was Auntie Crae's and still like it! A little pricier these days but always a favorite of locals and visitors alike. Did not like the upstairs walk to the washroom but the food is better than average. Like the coffee always and many snacks for lunchtime or anytime. For ten bucks you can get a sandwich,coffee and cookie. Great breads and local fare for everyone! The sitting area has expanded so even more folk can sit and read, study, chat and/or people watch.

If you are shopping downtown, pop on by for a coffee and try to resist the selection of homemade sweets! Highly recommend to anyone!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This coffee shop has a great, relaxed atmosphere and wide range of coffees and sweet treats. A lovely, quirky place to sit and read the paper and watch the world go by.

“Best Place for Lunch or a Quick Bite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

It's absolutely a place to stop by while in St. John's. And if you live here and have not yet been to the Rocket, shame on you!
Very casual bakery, you pick a number, place your order at the counter, pay and enjoy your food. A lot of the items in the menu change daily, but it always features fresh mouth-watering salads, pies, soups and sandwiches in their house-baked bread.
Their patisserie selection is also to die for, with fresh-baked cookies and tarts.
Whether you need a coffee break from your stroll downtown or grab a quick lunch during the week, the Rocket is the place to be

“Market Style Bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Loved the place. Great breakfast sausage roll - homemade sausage and flaky pastry served with some small veggies for garnish and fresh roasted coffee - at great prices. It's busy and full of locals loads of seating.
