Great place for a coffee or a casual meal!! Went to this cafe a number of times during my stay in St John's. It was a favorite spot to meet up with family and friends!

I have visited Rocket Bakery many times since it opened and it has never disappointed. You can get a yummy lunch, a hot drink, and a dessert and soak in the sights from the big windows, or sit further in where it's nice and cozy.
