Went for a late lunch after arriving in St. John's, how to describe this one. First no furniture is matching, located in an old building, self serve, a bit expensive in my view. BUT yet it has a distinctive charm of its own. I had a sausage role and the other half had pulled pork dish of some sort which... More

Been here a few times the food and coffee are decent but I don't go anymore because it's too confusing going in and everything takes forever. There always 6 staff behind the counter working hard but everything is so disorganized nothing flows. There's tons of other cafes that are much less stressful close by.

Visited Sept. 2014. This is the place to curl up with a book, talk with friends over coffee, think about the next fun project you want to do. But really, all I wanted to do was fill my face with their baked goodies, slurp their coffee and enjoy the people watching. Where I live, there are too many soulless corporate... More

Great coffee. Nice busy warm atmosphere. Falafel wrap was average and shouldn't have been warmed up (weird with hot lettuce and fresh tomatoe) poor choice on my part. Best coffee in St. John's from my experience.

I could eat and drink one of everything in this cafe. It can be tricky getting through the line to place/pay for your order and then pick it up, because they do get quite busy, so some patience needed but well worth the navigation of the Rocket line up :)

Found the Rocket Bakery on the second day of my visit and didn't go anywhere else after that for coffee and lunch - loved this place! Really good espresso and delicious pastries and lunch fare. The pulled pork turnover was fantastic, as was the sandwich of the day. Cream puff was superb. Staff are great and the owners have a... More

We went here for coffee and a cookie. Nice place. They had someone playing guitar and singing so the ambiance was good.
