Indulge yourself.

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.

Stopped in this wonderful gelato stop with my 3 children. The gelato was fresh, tasy and better than I had in Italy. The gelato was so good it was hard to pick which one to get. The two charming owners Robin and Joe went out of their way to let my kids taste all different kinds of gelato until they... More

For those of you looking for a different type of frozen treat other than ice cream in Rockport, you may want to visit the Robin's Nest. Not only do they offer a very tasty gelato, they also have water ice. The Philadelphia water ice is a twist on normal italian ice but has much more flavor. The other different is... More

Often when my family and I are out for a relaxing day, it's hard to settle on one place to eat. One wants a sweet snack, another salty, and a lot of time is spent wandering around to satisfy us all. But it's so easy when we go to Rockport. The Robin's Nest makes everyone happy! The owners and staff... More
