Great place to relax and sip a good cappuccino (or espresso) with freshly baked pastry. The best coffee on the street (we tried three locations).

We've been coming here for years. The strudel is great (cherry is my favorite) and the view from their back porch is a treat in itself!

While wandering up and down Bearskin Neck in Rockport, MA you need to take a break and be pleasantly surprised by this amazing eatery. They offer freshly back strudel (just like the kind I used to eat as a child in Salzburg & Vienna). It is even better a la mode! They have a charming back deck to sit with... More

We tried an apple strudel and a blueberry croissant. Both were delicious. My husband loved the Italian roast coffee.

Walk in and pick from a variety of strudels. Other baked goods, as well, but have to have the strudel. The pastry used is so flaky and it is finished off with confectioner's sugar. Just so fresh and delicious. Outdoor seating to sit and have a coffee with your pastry. No seating inside.

We had recently returned from Austria where we had the best strudel. Seeing Helmuts we wished to repeat the experience. How disappointing. We only had the apple strudel which was so greasy. Not like what we had many times at different places in Austria.

Have your desert here. Strudel is the real deal. Coffee is the real deal as well. The little deck in the back overlooking the bay is nice spot to enjoy a break.

Stopped by this small shop after online reviews and word of mouth. And we were not disappointed.We tried both strudels and croissants and it was a tie when we tried to decide on our favorite. Don't miss this place!

Wonderful strudel,very friendly people.Great place to start or end the day dessert after dinner.They have a little porch on back where you can sit and enjoy the view.They close at 7pm but they have a side exit from porch so you can stay after they have closed at night and enjoy the view.

Thank Jeffdale2014
