Good, strong espresso served at this busy little cafe. Not many options for kids, so would not recommend for a family stop. Nothing seems to be made in house, so skipped the treats. But good place to grab a coffee

Not too many restaurants open for dinner and the ones that are are quite crowded. We had Take Out Wraps and ate them at a park bench on Bearskin Neck. Wraps had fresh ingredients and were quite good! It was a beautiful evening and enjoyed low stress meal and being outside!

Great little cafe with a view off the harbor. Had a very good curried chicken salad, some wonderful pastries, coffee, tea, and a cookie. All were superb. Noticed that they also serve breakfast. The quiche they had looked wonderful.

When staying in Rockport this is always my first stop to refuel. The coffee is excellent. Yes you can get espresso and the many varieties of one, even in decaf. The croissants are to die for but you have to get here early to get yours. They open early and tend to sell out their croissants by 10:00 am in... More

We experienced great coffee at sundown and great service with the locals early in the morning. This is a great way to see Rockport in a natural way when the only other people around are dog walkers or on their way to work (sounds simplistic but experience it to appreciate it)

Just had the worst BLT at Bean and Leaf . For 10$ the wrap had 1 thin slice of bacon , 1 slice of tomato and the rest a bunch of bitter limp lettuce . So disappointed !

Jed C, Owner at Bean & Leaf Cafe, responded to this review

Greetings! I am very sorry that you were unhappy with your BLT wrap that you ordered. I am looking into what went wrong as that wrap has 4 slices of smoked bacon, 4 slices of vine ripe tomatoes, mayo and organic mixed greens! Clearly you did not get the high standard we strive for at B&L. Did you express your... More

This is a nice little café overlooking the harbour at Rockport - coffee and bakes were ok but not great.

If you are lucky enough to get a seat by the window to enjoy the water view with your incredible cup of coffee or tea with some great cookies and simple food. then your day is perfect.
