Wonderful freshly made strudel with benches in the back There are other options but you won't have a real feel of helmuts if you don't try the strudel It is a quaint part of Rockport

After walking in the shops for a few hours we needed a little snack and coffee. We shared a latte and chocolate croissant. It was so good I wish I would have gotten my own instead of splitting one. Good prices for being in a high tourist area. Nice little place to sit out back and watch the boats while... More

My mom and I were in Rockport for a long weekend. We stopped in Helmut's twice. I had the apple strudel, which was not too sweet and my mom had an almond croissant, which she proclaimed was the best she ever had. We stopped there again for a light lunch of a feta and spinach croissant. We sat out front... More

This was the perfect spot to start our Saturday and Sunday mornings on a recent weekend trip to Rockport. The croissants and coffee were delicious. The staff was very friendly and the back deck offers a great view.

Cute little place. Probably way nicer on a hot summer's day & provably way busier. Nice enough macchiatos. Not the best not the worst.

My brother owned a business a few buildings up from Helmut's and I have been going to Rockport for decades. This is a must visit place for my morning coffee. The deck in the back gives you a view of the harbor and Motif #!. You can park at the point of Bear Skin Neck for free until 10 am... More

Stopped for a short visit for a break from the action. Relaxing spot on their back porch to enjoy/relax a bit. Been here before.

We stopped in to get some rolls for our dinner later that evening but they only had "day old" pastries bagged up for sale. We went ahead and purchased a bag of 3 rolls, no two alike, and were amazed at how fresh they tasted! Get the "day old" pastries, save a bundle, and enjoy!

We vacation in Rockport yearly and Helmut's is always on our list of best breakfast choices. An almond croissant, a savory spinach croissant or a slice of apple strudel with an iced coffee on Helmut's cozy back deck is a great way to ease into the day. The deck overlooks the harbor and is a great place to sit and... More

I was looking forward to trying their apple strudel, but I was somewhat disappointed--the pastry was a bit tough. It was just OK. I saw several flies landing on the various pastries--obviously, the staff had forgotten to use the proper shields to protect the pastry display.

Thank lmclat
