Good service

After eating lunch we stopped in for a couple coffees. Unfortunately we did not save room for the strudel which looked great. The coffees were good and the service friendly.

Lovely breakfast treat! Really enjoyed their baked goods and being able to sit out back and enjoy the view of the marina.

Have been drinking their excellent coffee and eating their oh-so-tasty baked goods for 17 years and can think of no better place to indulge one's self in genuinely good stuff. The staff is super-friendly and you have the option of inside or outside seating. I love this place!

We were staying across the road at the Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge and needed a place to get coffee first thing in the morning. Thankfully, Helmut's opened at 7 and delivered the much needed shot of caffeine and sugar. We first came across Helmut's at street fairs where different strudels and wellingtons were sold. We discovered that it's a franchise... More

It has been several years since I last visited and I was so looking forward to enjoying a tasty treat. Unfortunately the strudel a la mode is not at all as I remembered and not FYI as pictured above. I was served a ridiculously teeny tiny piece of strudel (which although short on fruit filling was still very tasty) in... More

Great strudels for anyone with a sweet tooth, enough said, plus they have a nice bench outside with a great view.

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat before heading home. The apple strudel was so fresh and yummy, only wish I could have tried all the flavors. They all looked great. The ham n cheese sandwich and spinach n feta sandwich were also a hit. We ate on the back deck with a great view. I would recommend stopping... More

My wife and I first visited Rockport its poor college students n 1985, and the only thing we remember for sure doing on that trip was sharing a strudel from Helmut's. On our third visit back since then, we maintain the tradition. Both the strudel and the croissants are fantastic. There is seating for a few people, including outside seating... More

Helmut's has been a fixture in Rockport for as long as I can remember. My daughter and I and the grandchildren stopped in early in the morning last week for a fresh piece of strudel, and were offered five different strudels from which to chose. We went for apple and cherry, and we all decided the cherry was even better... More

This is a cozy place with great atmosphere for coffee and a pastry on the rear deck or in the coffee house, or to bring home. Helmut's is a classic Rockport experience on Bearskin Neck
