It has a great atmosphere with very friendly staff serving good healthy food. Joined to a cycling shop selling top quality merchandise.

I went here last week for lunch with a vegetarian friend. Amazing healthy food and friendly service. We were very impressed. The food was freshly prepared and very healthy. The coffee was also sublime. I will definitely be back

I've known Jon and Martyn since Rockets first opened and their love and passion for all things 2 wheels shines through. The cafe has gone from strength to strength over the years with the quality of the food and smoothies, shakes, wraps, naughties and quality...More

Really like this place built into an old bank! Great coffee and cakes with the benefit of bike locks to secure your bike! Friendly staff and an epic flat white!

With a heavy heart (have been here before and enjoyed cake and coffee) I will avoid in future. Tamsin (l think was the name of the person who served us) needs to stay back of house. She was nonchalant, unwelcoming and preoccupied. When our coffee...More

Great spot in Poole, strongly recommend a visit for cyclists or non-cyclists. Part coffee shop/ bike workshop with lovely bikes and accessories. The food is fantastic (tasty & v fresh), good atmosphere and friendly staff. Smart idea of providing communal bike locks for customers outside.

Quite a novelty little snackbar type retaurant mainly frequented by young families. Next door to a cycle shop so this was the theme of this cute eating place. Ideal for a "quick bite".

After going to Rockets and Rascals in Plymouth I was really excited to visit here, but this place is a world apart (in a very bad way). The cups all had lipstick on them, and 'Martyn Hoyle' (according to the receipt) was very cold and...More

Description
The Cafe at Rockets & Rascals Poole is perfectly situated to be the best start, or end, of a ride exploring the nearby Purbeck Hills. We open at 0800 with our cracking breakfast menu and freshly ground coffee. Our friendly and welcoming team can point you in the right direction for exploration of the area, or you can just relax and read the paper. Lisa serves up our own special Rocket blend of coffee as well as a guest single origin coffee that changes regularly. We're stocked with a wide selection of teas, with herbal and decaf' options too. Cycling and cake are a match made in heaven. A fantastic range of locally baked cakes with gluten free options available. If you've worked up an appetite by riding a full lap of the harbour then you may want to join us for lunch. We have a lovely selection of gourmet sandwiches, salads and daily specials that will bring a warm feeling to tired legs.
