Great variety of home made donuts and pastries, coffees and teas! New this year more seating for casual dinning and coffee breaks. Wonderful sandwiches and burgers too!

Casual, informal, self help, warm and friendly. It is where locals go and visitors are welcome but you do need to understand there is no table service and you order by squeezing up to the bar. The dark sin is your best coffee choice along with the expresso selection. The donuts are truly exceptional but often only a few varieties... More

Trayfuls of donuts appear from the bakery downstairs, and they're quite good. This is the only coffee shop in town (Dunkin Donuts doesn't count). Worth a stop.

This very unusual old diner (sort of inside and adjacent restaurant) offers a very old-fashioned ambiance (with round stools fixed at an old counter) and a few nearby tables. We were surprised by their very fancy coffee offerings and enjoyed our traditional macchiatos a lot.

My wife and I live I live in Beverly so don't go to Rockport all that often, we decided to take a morning trip because we had heard about this place for breakfast. We walk in and it's a weird setup-tables but also a room with bar seating. No one approached us-I guess we were supposed to know how this... More

This place is a must stop - or drive to, even if you are in Gloucester. The home made donuts are incredible and their variety is so interesting. The coffee selection is great - try the dark sin. And I am so happy that they still sell the real deal Nisu - which is a family tradition for us. Can't... More

Good place to take a coffee with cookies. It's a place where you can meet the real inhabitants from Rockport

During our two month visit to Rockport, we went to Brothers probably 12 times. Kids, parents, retired locals, construction workers, active duty coast guard...everyone goes to Brothers Brew. Sit at the counter and find out what is going on in town. The doughnuts are to die for (Cider and Blueberry in particular). We like the morning egg sandwiches in Thomas'... More

Brothers Brew was a mere 462 feet from my hotel...I walked there every morning to get a real cup of coffee. I could smell it brewing 50 feet away. I loved it. And the scones and donuts were divine too!

This place is fantastic. Arrived right at opening one morning got two coffees to go and two cinnamon donuts that were fresh made and still hot. Brought them back to our inn for my wife and won husband of the year for bringing her the donuts!! I did taste them and they were out of this world. This is a... More
