Great Stopping Place

We were traveling the Rockport area from June 17 to 24 2015 and we stopped here while walking the shop area. This place was wonderful, the staff very kind and the scones were first rate. We sat out on the deck and had a wonderful of the bay.

We tried to resist the call of the strudel, but we gave in. We shared a piece of flaky, sweet apple strudel as we walked back to the car. We intended to take a bite each and safe the rest for the drive, but before we knew it, we were enjoying the last bite and not regretting it at all.

Hubby loved it and said it was fresh and tasty. He said the ice cream is vanilla bean and excellent together with the strudel. Add coffee and a seat out on their back porch and you won't find a better stop for a mid day break. My only irritation was the nice, but clueless, young person at the counter. It... More

Fresh baked goods in a lovely setting. Enjoy your strudel or croissant on the deck out back overlooking Rockport Harbor and the famous Motif #1 view or munch while you stroll around the cute town. A relatively small selection of baked goods but the strudel is ourstanding.

Great morning pastries and coffee. We stopped at Helmut's every morning while in Rockport. Conveniently located within steps of Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge and lots of Rockport shopping and galleries, Helmuts is great for morning or an afternoon break. And remember that you can get whole pastries to go. They hold very well and you get to take a piece... More

Great place for 'coffee and'. Get the Italian Roast, it's soooo good. Some indoor seating--not much--and a little outdoor deck overlooking the harbor to enjoy your purchases on if the weather permits. Fresh pastries--a small selection of strudels, croissants, muffins, and sticky buns, the fillings of which change from time to time depending on ingredients they have on hand. Dog-friendly,... More

We couldn't wait to try this place. We stayed right across the street and were excited to get something sweet with a coffee. Went over around 7:30am and door was locked. No sign of hours and woman just stared at me out window! She could of at least opened door and tell me when they opened. A bakery should open... More

We purchased an apple strudel to take back to our room. Our server was very pleasant and offered to cut it for us. We had it for dessert that night and breakfast the next day. Very yummy and held up beautifully overnight. Tried to go again but they were closed. 😿

The most fresh croissants you have ever had. The ham and cheese croissant still tasted like dessert. The fruit ones melt in your mouth. Luckily we stayed right across the street!
