Don't miss this place flaky apple pastry is my favorite but there are other flavors as well a croissants both savory and sweet. Yummy hot and cold beverages. Sit on the back deck overlooking the inner harbor. So peaceful or take your tasty treasure down below and sit on the small beach and then hunt beach glass if tide allows.

A staple in Rockport. Their strudel is very very good. If you're lucky, there will be a seat available for you on their outdoor deck that overlooks Rockport Harbor.

A short walk up Bearskin Neck to this delightful place. Wonderful strudel and other yummies for breakfast or just a snack.

We took our children there decades ago & we visited several times since. We were so pleased to find they are still creating some of the most sumptuous eats available. Absolutely love this place - it is a must visit when in Bearskin Neck!

Went in for hot cider on Sunday shortly before 5 pm not realizing they would soon close as several people were inside, and a family came in behind us. Two young women were working. We got our drinks and sat down for a few minutes. I was about half done with my cider when we noticed they were beginning to... More

Everyone visits Helmut's! Great for early risers out for a morning walk to the end of Bearskin Neck! Casual deck for coffee and strudel overlooking the harbor. Kick back and relax, don't forget to say hello to Mark.

I have been coming to Rockport for over 30 years and for some strange reason had never been in Helmut's until this year. Wow! Have I been missing out. My family and I enjoyed sticky buns, apple strudel, and great coffee while enjoying the harbor view from their back deck on a sunny fall Sunday morning. This place will now... More

We came in two times during our visit in Rockport. Tried for a third but dicovered they were only open on weekends. Coffee, strudel's and croissant's were our food/beverages of choice each time! Small place but worth it. Highly recommended!
