I can only say that I had a croissant breakfast sandwich, which was delicious, but what I want to rave about was the property itself. So homey with a mix of eclectic chairs and woodwork. I felt like I was in my great aunt’s kitchen....More

Only went for "fika" = cookies and soda. Cookies are great, all made on site. Great selection of bread also.

We purchased and enjoyed a tiny chocolate cake for a Birthday celebration. It looked very rich. The taste was amazing. It was light and not too rich.

We finished our trip to NL with an evening dessert after supper at Rocket. The half cheesecake, half carrot cake was amazing. Even more amazing was the fact that the chocolate cheesecake with caramel was even better! Awesome atmosphere inside and great service! Thanks Rocket...More
