The strudel was so hot when we got it we had to wait to eat it. We got the cheese strudel and the ham and cheese croiussants. Right across the street from Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge.

We eat doughnuts at brothers brew then come here for coffee. They have the best coffee ever. Especially the iced mocha. Holy cow. It's amazing. The strudel is also to die for. Traditional German recipes

I went in looking for a small snack to tide me over so my husband and I could have a late lunch. I decided to have the house strudel since I figured it was their speciality and asked my server what the most popular flavor was - so apple is what I had. My husband entered saying he wasn't hungry... More

This weekend I was in Rockport for the first time visiting some friends and we picked up an apple strudel from Helmuts for dessert. It was great. We even had a guy visiting from Germany with us and he enjoyed it. I would recommend it for all strudel fans.

The lovely little sitting area in the back right on the water is the highlight of this resaurant. Coffee decent. They need to improve the pastries, however. Subpar ingredients and misadvertised "croissants" (which did not flake at all...tasted more like a filled brioche roll, but without quality butter to give it that wonderful brioche taste). The cheese strudel filling was... More

When you are tired stop by. The food is good and I like that there is a bathroom. I dislike the fact it is too small,

Quiet little bakery. I ordered a large tea, my husband ordered a coffee and strudel. Because the cup was so large , I asked for 2 teabags. I was charged for 2 cups of tea which was silly. The lid & cup cost more than the Tetley teabag.

After climbing the rocks of the seawall at the Rockport Harbor what better way to celebrate your accomplishment than to have some amazing strudel with vanilla ice and an iced coffee to wash it down. The strudel was fresh and very tasty. Definitely worth frequent visits.

We went in bought a big cheese strudel and took it for dinner. Don't have them cut it because they cut it into four big squares not slices! It was really good!
