Great Strudel

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. 😿

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

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!

Loved this little strudel shop on bearskin neck. I enjoyed everything I tried there. The apple strudel was my favorite

The pastries are just delicious, you can't go wrong stopping here. A must on a trip to Rockport. They should be open now, full time. Winter months the hours are different.

We shared a full apple strudel plus 4 scoops ice cream and 2 cappuccino. Apple strudel was warm. Like just from oven. Plus very smooth ice cream, it was delicious. The view from the deck also awesome.

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.
