Best soups, sandwiches, and desserts in town. The atmosphere is lively and the place is always filled with interesting people. The tea is fantastic and I highly recommend their black bean burritos.

A "must" for anyone visiting St. John's. It's the centre for finding out what to do in St. John's. Always something happening...music, art, lecture. Plus great food.

Ate here for lunch and the fish cakes were to die for! I will be back. Also had the pulled pork on a previous visit and it was really good.

We went to the Rocket Bakery twice during our stay in St. John's - once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both were delicious. We like the quirky style of the eating area. It is nice that they have jugs of ice water that you can help yourself to. There is not a huge selection, but everything we tried was... More
