I've never been to Europe but felt like this could be in Italy. My sister lived in Italy and Holland and from her description this could be either place.

Tried the fish cakes, frittata and a vegan wrap. The fish in the fish cake still had the skin on it, the frittata tasted like microwaved leftovers and the soup and vegan wrap were good. This is more of a snack bar than a restaurant....More

Rocket always has a lively but relaxing atmosphere. The food and coffee is excellent and there is usually a decent selection. Their deserts are also fantastic. They have a good selection of specialized merchandise that is great for gifts or souvenirs.

Nothing, absolutely NOTHING appealed to me in this bakery -- not the pastries, sandwiches, coffee. I got a cookie, just to give it a try, and it was okay but nothing to write home about.
