I don't find the food here great, and the prices are a little on the higher end for what is served. The atmosphere is quirky and different, but not especially nice.

The coffee (brewed or espresso drinks) is amazing and the ginger cookies are to die for! Fortunately they have bagged cookies to bring back home to Alberta!

This is a community focused place. In addition to being a good coffee/lunch place, we also attended an open mic night and a Sunday Christmas Craft Fair. A benefit to downtown St. John's!

My husband and I were out walking in the downtown area and decided we would drop in for dinner. Food was fabulous, service great and the entertainment was wonderful. This restaurant allows locals to go in and entertain you with dance, playing a musical instrument...More

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....More

Definitely a must visit place for a lunch. Can get it to-go, or find a seat in the quirky dining area. Very popular with the locals, often line-ups. Very good food at reasonable prices. Had live music at lunch on a weekday. Awesome!

The Rocket Cafe receives very good reviews locally....I think it is okay. By St. John's standards it is probably pretty good, but I am not from St. John's. The stuff that is good (in my opinion): - the wraps - particularly the blackbean burrito -...More
