“Quaint and Fresh!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

What a cute place!! Friendly staff, great location, and great food. It is a great place if you do not have a lot of time; but also great if you have LOTS of time. They prepare your food in front of you, so everything is fresh!! If you love Coffee, you have a choice of many coffees - their desserts, snacks, and goodies, are "awesome"!! The best of all is the Bread Pudding!! It is simply the best Bread pudding there is - better than my Mom's, which is what I make at our house - wow!! I have a lot of tasting and testing to do before I will ever make Mom's recipe like the Rocket's! Be sure to visit this restaurant if you are in St John's.

“mmmmmmmm....”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Fresh baked goodies and great coffee in a wonderful cozy atmosphere. Also, features canned products and prepared meals. We just dropped in after a stroll and sat and devoured cinnamon rolls and a coffee. Outstanding!

“A MUST go”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

There are simply not enough good things to say about Rocket. Amazing atomophere, fresh, local, wide variety, amazing pastries, EVERYTHING is thought of. Staff are Newfoundland friendly and for such a cool place, it's completely down to earth. Live music from time to time. No detail for customers is left unfilled. The benchmark of what any establishment should be

“Great little bakery and cafe”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stopped in to Rocket a couple times. It's in a great location in the heart of downtown St. John's, and the perfect stop as you wander around the shops in the area. We had two delicious baked sweets for dessert one evening, and would definitely go back for more sometime. The staff was great; very helpful and friendly.
