We could smell the pastries as we were watching the sun rise. The Cinnamon Roll and Cranberry Walnut Muffin were excellent. They hit the spot for a light early breakfast. Five dollars and change for quick bite is very reasonable too.

Many choices here. 'Day olds' are marked, the rest is FRESH! We split a slice of delicious cherry strudel ($2.75) out on a table in back of the store. Enjoyed both the view and strudel immensely. The next morning we had a honey sticky bun and a blueberry crescent. Both pastries were excellent even though we may have liked the... More

Great choice of strudel and croissants, coffee selection is more than enough and you must go our back and hope one of the few tables is open! Quite a surprise to find this gem in Rockport. The staff is funny and works hard to keep things moving, however you are not rushed. We will stop buy for a coffee and... More

Went there twice at 7am for coffee and struedels. Always fresh and tasty. Tried apple, cherry and cream cheese. Cherry our fave, but all worth trying- and they are huge!

When growing up in Rockport, I have fond memories of coming down to visit this strudel shop for some great homemade pastries. The shop is very small, but offers some incredible food. Although the seating is very limited, the dining on the back deck offers incredible views of the Rockport Harbor and sometimes gives you front row seats to harbor... More

Conveniently located across from our motor lodge on Bearskin Neck, we ate breakfast twice here. Best strudel ever. Cream cheese is to die for but other fruits great, too. Also ate supper the first night with savory strudel, also excellent. Don't miss.

I still dream of the sweet cheese strudel. Saw someone get warm cherry strudel in a bowl filled with vanilla ice cream. Something to look forward to when we return next summer!

Few choices of pastries and Strudels. Huge pieces. But apple strudel itself was rather soggy. Failed to evoke beloved Viennese cafes.
