We had coffee here on several occasions during our recent visit to St. John's. Great lattes and machiattos, and our daughter just loved their macarons. Convenient location, would recommend. Service can be slow at times though.

Great pastries and soup. A fun spot to stop. Latte was superb. Seating was fine. A few panhandlers outside.

Hit up Rocket on the way to a conference. Great breakfast croissant, friendly service. Price point equal to Starbucks.

Tasty food with decent selection (if you aren't gluten sensitive). The set up is pleasant and my panini like sandwich was quite tasty along with my latte. They also served soups and had appealing bakery items (ginger cookies for example).

The Cuban sandwich was very good, just as the man in store kindly recommended (I believe he was the owner). Great spot to sit and enjoy the day with a nice meal!

Great breakfast, desserts, lunch etc. This cool place is great for anyone to sit and enjoy. Staff is kind and courteous. Desserts are all homemade, I think we tried everything.

Went in looking for a sweet fix. Got some ginger snaps and the chocolate raspberry slice of cake. The ginger snaps were nice. Soft and not too sweet. The cake was nicely chocolaty but the icing was a bit light on the raspberry flavour. It...More

Hi Sherry - thanks for your review and for coming in to Rocket! We use real raspberries that we push through a sieve to get the colour and flavour so it IS a bit more delicate, for sure! :) Cheers, Kelly
