The atmosphere is adorable and the food was great. The tomato soup and pizza were especially amazing! Though it was a little overpriced, it was a fun splurge for lunch!

We really enjoyed our visit here. The pastries were light and flavorful but not too sweet. The sandwiches are immense and also well done. I wish we had been staying and tried their homemade breads which looked amazing! You can tell it's a well managed establishment. Something we feel is important. My only complaint is that they don't make simple... More

This is a spectacular bakery that serves coffee and a few other items. I have never had anything as delicious as their array of pastries and breads. The atmosphere is comfortable with a pretty busy vibe and I usually get things to take home but there is also sidewalk seating in warmer months. Absolutely spectacular.

came here as it's on the way home from my son's school. Parking is a bit tight, but it's worth it. We have not had a bad pastry yet, but recommend the passion fruit macaroon ! The have lunch options but we have yet to try.

This is a neighborhood gem, precious in every way. It's a dangerous place, where you go in for a loaf of their incredible sour dough and come out with your arms full of bakery so good, half of it will be gone by lunch time. They are purveyors to many local restaurants. Usually, places like this do well at a... More

The best almond croissant you'll ever have, although you could say that about their cookies, muffins, macrons, monkey bread, danish, and just about everything else they carry. The owners seem to only keep the best of the best on their menu. Great weekend items not to be missed: cheese bread, pretzels, deluxe breakfast in a muffin (soft boiled egg inside),... More

If you are looking for bakery in the Milwaukee area, this is the best place to go! Pastries are fantastic and the atmosphere is very nice. I frequently stop in here to buy bread or bakery and am always very happy with the food. Monkey bread, kouign aman, and the danishes are particularly excellent!

My time at Rocket Baby was horrible! The staff is unbelievably disrespectful. The cashier woman had a horrible attitude and even rolled her eyes at me! The food is incredibly expensive!! It costs $7 for a tiny piece of quiche! Also, I ordered a banana muffin and it had eggshells in it. I was repulsed. I went back to the... More

I've tried just about every single pastry and bread at Rocket Baby -- both sweet and savory -- and have never been disappointed. The croissants are on-par with any I've had in Paris. The breads have the glorious French brown crusts and soft insides that could be enjoyed without butter (but even better with the butter)! The almond brioche toast... More

I'm not at all what I would consider a "bread fan". However, Rocket Baby Bakery is doing their best to convert me. My girlfriend loves just about everything in this place. I can definitely vouch for their baguettes. They make great Bon Mi's and soak up a pot of mussels like no other! They also have great cappuccino's.
