When you are looking for a latte, some soup or a sandwich, Bean & Leaf is a great place to go. Unexpectedly it has the best clam chowder in Rockport. Cozy on a cold morning, it has a nice view of the water.

Great tasting coffee in a real cup. A real cup! Plus an unobstructed view of the water. Feels like you won the lotto and got the best seat in the house. They have a selection of desserts, soups, salad, sandwiches. Get a bowl of clam chowder if that's what you're after. Impressed!

We picked up breakfast sandwiches, scones, muffins, and bagels here during our trip to Rockport. Everything was freshly made and quite good. Friendly service, and nice looking salad and sandwich options when you've had enough seafood!

Just stopped in for cappuccino and a muffin. Both were excellent. It was really cappuccino, not latte. They know how to do it right. The menu was very interesting but when I came back later for lunch it was too crowded. Another time. Sweet little place. Nice view.

Lunch at the Bean & Leaf is standard while visiting Bearskin Neck in Rockport (pick up your fresh lobster meat at Roy Moore's up the neck for dinner later). Bean & Leaf serves fresh soups (excellent clam chowder), wraps, salads, and pastries with a large assortment of teas, coffees and cider for a great lunch selection. Seating is tight, so... More

Tea and chocolate brownies at the Bean and Leaf café overlooking the water is one of life’s simple pleasures. This is a great place for a mid-morning break – lovely ambience, friendly staff.

We had fruit pies, quiche and cappuccino here. It is a nice cafe, not very expensive. It has a nice view on the harbor.

Clam chowder very good, quiche very poor, the owner and the assistant were not too interested, didn't even offer to replace it, The fault was it was tasteless, think it had been frozen and reheated a few times, it was lifeless, it did even look appetising The salad garnish was ok though.
