Rocket has amazing sandwiches and a great bakery. I would particularly recommend Rocket for their coffee. Best dark roast in town.

I was in St. John’s for the week and came in for breakfast twice when I started to get tired of hotel meals. Loved the quiche and the breakfast sandwich. Also, thee cookies are to die for.
