Fantastic chocolate croissant and a good brewed coffee. It was a cold wet day in St John's and the down town Rocket Bakery was a warm cosy haven from the weather.

This was one of the most culturally rich experiences I have ever had. We stopped in for a coffee and some quiet time and didn't know that a Kitchen party was about to begin. Five men playing a bass guitar, a flute, an accordion a fiddle and a dulcimer. It was amazing. And the food and service was incredible More...

If you are visiting St John's Newfoundland, don't forget to add to your list of "Must do" at least a dessert Rocket Bakery & Fresh Food which is a place you can just sit, relax and enjoy a great coffee, sandwiche or amazing desserts. You can also buy local products in their store or take out if you prefer to eat at your hotel room. We totally recommend!!! More...

Pretty solid bakery. Maybe didn't *quite* live up to the hype we heard in advance, but still good food. The fish cakes were the bomb, but the cronut was better enjoyed with your eyes than your mouth.

Had a great lunch and heard some live local music from young people today at the Rocket Bakery. I had the Screech Pulled Pork Turnover, it was delicious. My wife had the Chicken Burrito with a bowl of tomato fennel soup, great as well. We shared a cheesecake dessert as we drank our dark and medium roast coffees. The place is always hopping so you can’t go wrong stopping in if you are near by. I highly recommend it. More...

First impression wasn’t great. Staff taking my order somehow didn’t relay my coffee order to the barista, and didn’t seem to want to explain what some of the pastries were. Partridgeberry scone was more like bread in texture than scone. Coffee was ok. Nice environment for sitting down though! More...

30 November 2018

Wonderful place. Great atmosphere, great food, great prices, great people. I absolutely love the way that they didn't strip the guts out of it and built the shop around its existing character. An absolutely "must go" place when you are downtown! More...

Focused on local sustainably raised food. Everything tastes wonderful! Not good for gluten free since its primarily a bakery, but there are some things. As well as macarons and a couple of gfree sweet treats, they also make gluten free fish cakes and several types of salad.

I don’t know about anything else, but the raisin tea buns are the best that I’ve had, tasting of delicate fresh butter, not very sweet, slightly dense and moist in texture, and absolutely delicious. The rest of Rocket was tempting, with all its other sweets and baked goods and sandwiches and coffees and souvenir mugs and, adjacent, an quaint eatery. Prices, accordingly, indicated a standard of excellence. Staff were kind and helpful. More...

I had the pleasure of booking the third floor of the Rocket for my wedding. I loved the old St. John's rustic vibe that the building portrays. Exposed brick walls and pretty Edison lights. Planning this wedding from Ontario was much easier than expected as Sophie made everything so smooth for us. She was kind and helpful. The food here was delicious, full of flavor and plentiful! My guests are still talking about the food! I am so thankful we had our reception here and the staff were excellent! More...

Busy and noisy on Saturday mornings. Staff are happy and friendly. We had pastries and coffee. The pastries were lovely including a partridgeberry scone, a cinnimon bun and a raison teabiscuit. All three pastries were perfectly fresh, soft and tasty. There was a long line waiting for our cappuchino and espresso. They were delicious and pretty too -but next time I would just have a dark roast and skip the line. The dark roast was very good. More...

The 50s rocket theme of the restaurant is really fun and gives it an informal and fun-loving atmosphere where there is a constant buzz about the place. It's always busy from what we saw and when we went for lunch, we were pleasantly surprised with the fun atmosphere and the great informal service. They have a neat way where you head to the back and grab a numbered card out of a toaster and wait until you are called to give your order.The food is all delicious and there is nothing that isn't just what you'd want to eat. The coffee and the cafe is good and they do things in a simple and honest way. I loved the iced tea which wasn't sweetened.Perfect spot to get a quick bite. Worth checking out for breakfast/lunch if you're in the area. More...

Love this bakery. Their breakfast croissant is great but their cookies can be a bit common. It's not a foodie place but it will fill you up. No NL food here and good for businesspeople. More...

Beautiful venue for a wedding upstairs, just right for the group we had, drink options at bar could be more broad, more liquor types and more mix types, def will be way to hot in July and August, it was pretty warm in may, mini split or A.C. might be an idea someday

Fresh made stuff with day old stuff clearly marked and discounted. They make "everything except the tortillas". This place can get super busy so bring a little patience. The barista station was slammed and, all I wanted was a brewed coffee, so I noticed they were a little sluggish getting a second body to assist. We weren't disappointed with anything we put in our mouths from the partridge berry scones to the tourtiere - excellent pie pastry and my better half has me spoiled in that regard. More...

Cute resto with vintage decor. The staff is smiley and helpful. There's a good selection of pastries and sandwiches and warm food. I had the pulled pork turnover and it was ok. They used a lot of spices for their sauce so I wasn't taking it pretty well. Their coffee is supposed to be one of the best, but it can be a bit stronger. More...

Their Croissants are also good. From a pricing standpoint, I find the place to be on the higher side as compared to other bakeries in town. Their staff is friendly as well. More...

I do love Rockets. The service is always good and for the most part the food is always lovely (any food I dislike just has to do with personal preferences). Rockets can be pricey and sometimes it feels like it is too expensive for what you get-but that is a common trait shared by a lot of local businesses-since they make things onsite and use local ingredients. The food is always fresh and the staff always greets customers with smiles on their faces. However it can be loud/busy there and there is never a quiet time in the day to go. It has a great over-all atmosphere over-all and it is very warm abd homey. My personal favourite menu items are the pulled pork turnover (which is lovely) and the raspberry buttercream chocolate cake. I would go with a Mocha for my drink in the winter, and lemonade in the summer. Overall Rocket Bakery is a great Newfoundland style bakery and I definitely reccomend visiting especially if it is your first time visiting in the city. More...
