Everyone visits Helmut's! Great for early risers out for a morning walk to the end of Bearskin Neck! Casual deck for coffee and strudel overlooking the harbor. Kick back and relax, don't forget to say hello to Mark.

I have been coming to Rockport for over 30 years and for some strange reason had never been in Helmut's until this year. Wow! Have I been missing out. My family and I enjoyed sticky buns, apple strudel, and great coffee while enjoying the harbor view from their back deck on a sunny fall Sunday morning. This place will now... More

We came in two times during our visit in Rockport. Tried for a third but dicovered they were only open on weekends. Coffee, strudel's and croissant's were our food/beverages of choice each time! Small place but worth it. Highly recommended!

I saw this little strudel shop on Yelp and knew that it would be part of my friend and I day trip to Rockport. We both have a love for sweet things and we have both been working so hard we knew we deserved it! We stopped by after walking through some little shops and taking in the scenery. We... More

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
