“Best Place for Lunch or a Quick Bite”
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”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Great Coffee”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

On my recent trip to St. John's frequented Rockets on numerous occasions. Great drip coffee that's been roasted by them. If you're lucky enough to get a table outside can't have a better location to sit and people watch.

“Wonderful in many ways!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

While in St Johns, we stopped in once or twice each day to enjoy a treat. The space is funky and comfortable. The food is fresh and well priced. The staff are friendly and kind. We met and chatted with one of the owners and learned a bit of the background of the business, which is very cool story. A business well worth supporting!

“Loved it through and through!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The first time we stopped by was for a coffee. But we had to come back for the food.

Great atmosphere. Just the type of place to grab a bite (soups, salads and freshly made sandwiches), grab a coffee with or without some baked goods on the side. We noticed a lot of locals, catching up, bumping into each other, etc and the place just had a great vibe.

Don't forget to grab a number! It's right on the counter above the salad display.

Check it out!
