So many yummy choices.

Small shop with a great variety. friendly staff offering samples before you buy, we couldn't make up minds so we ended up getting three scoops each a different flavor so we could enjoy a bit of each. :) You are in a tourist area, prices are as expected.

Stopped in on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Very pleasant staff that immediately offered samples to try flavors we were interested in. My wife and I were both very pleased with our selections. Best Gelato ever. We'll be back.

I've been to Robin's Nest gelato shop a few times and it is excellent! Much better than ice cream...and healthier! They have many flavors and they change to fit the holiday spirit! My favorite is salted caramel and chocolate. And the owners, Robin and Joe, are wonderful too! Very nice. There is also a window seat inside and a nice... More

A great little oasis in the heart of Rockport. High calorie pleasure but, hey, you're on vacation and you can walk it off. Immaculately clean, friendly service, and generous scoops. There are outside benches to sit on while getting in your licks! A memorable, old fashioned experience.

I work in Rockport MA and often am looking for a sweet treat to finish off my lunch. I am highly recommending the Robins Nest. It is a very clean and inviting gelato shop located at 1 Main Street in Rockport MA. The selection is good and everything is always fresh and delicious. I particularly like the mango and raspberry...

Our whole family has been enjoying this wonderful "gem" in Rockport since it opened. The most difficult decision is which flavor to choose. Robin and Joe make it easy to choose with their samples and suggestions. This is such a sunny location and the atmosphere is fun and of course, very sweet. So many varieties to choose from and never... More

They have the best gelato here, hands down. If you go to Rockport you must stop here and try it! They sell drinks too at a good price so that is an awesome plus. Every time I go to Rockport I come here. And the owners are so perfect!

If you're vegan, like me, or choose no dairy, you must go to Robin's Nest for the most wonderful sorbets; they are to die for! Not watery at all, very flavorful. Great service, too. Try a tasting spoon or three. Then I dare you to narrow it down to one flavor.
