I love this place. Absolutely love it.
Such an excellent concept; the decor is bright & cheerful, REAL food done up the right way - fresh bread, real sauces, unprocessed. Their daily sandwiches are fabulous - they always have something new and creative (the best I've had was a combo of roast ham, pureed peas, pickled onions and Havarti I think, so so good). I cannot say enough good things about this place. It is a little pricey, but hey its totally worth ever $ in my opinion.

Perfect for lunches and coffee.

Go and try it if you haven't!

This informal and busy spot has the best cake and cappuccino, very creamy. The sandwiches and soup are yummy and interesting. Everything is home made. Best of all, the Rocket is lively and a good place for people watching. Be prepared to stand in more than one line to get what you want, but that is just part of the fun atmosphere.

A rather unique bakery with a line for ordering sandwiches, salads, baked goods and the like. It is kind of unique and the food is fresh and good. It's kind of expensive for what it is but it is truly different. Great bisque and other soups. Try it!!!

We sort of stumbled across this place and are very glad that we did.... it doesn't look like much from the outside, or even from the inside, but what it may lack in 'designer style' etc it makes up for in terms of the food - good sized portions of surprisingly tasty food.... the staff are very helpful and friendly too.
Not cheap, but the mix of clientele and the general ambiance make it a worthwhile stop in town for a good hearty brunch.

Had two eclairs and was gravely disappointed. With all of the media attention this place receives I had high expectations.

Danny's bakery in Stephenville NL is far superior to this place.

Overall the food was sub par, however, that being said the service was great as the people behind the counter aim to please.
