Since we visited in the off season, they were only open on Sat-Sun, so I'm happy I got a chance to try this delicious strudel. It was recommended by a friend and she was right! We got a box of cheese, strawberry cheese, apple and almond and they were all hot, fresh, and so flaky. Melt in you mouth goodness.... More

The best strudel around. Other pastries also excellent as is the freshly brewed coffee. Some nice outside seating overlooking the innere harbor.

The coffee was strong and good. The pastries were awesome. We sampled several different kinds. The location just can't be beat. If the small shop is full, you can take your pastries and coffee to go and sit by the harbor to watch the boats. Perfect way to start the day.

What more could you ask for?? Hot coffee and a danish. Nice place to sit out back and even on a cold brisk morning is absolutely beautiful. Nice variety and very very nice staff.

This is a must visit during a trip to Rockport! Small area for seating inside, very nice deck outside with great view, all great places to enjoy your strudel. They have apple, cherry, and my favorite sweet cheese. They also carry coffee,tea, and other beverages. My favorite is the hot apple cider. Everyone is friendly, and it is very popular,... More

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!
