If someone were to ask me what my favorites foods are, I’d have to say a really good cheese, sushi, a perfectly ripe watermelon, a delicious piece of fish, and the cranberry nut muffin from Helmut’s Strudel in Rockport.
So, as often as possible, I steal away solo or with the boys (who worship at the altar of the raspberry cream croissant) and grab a quick treat at Helmut’s on “the Neck.”
Last week, Finn and I enjoyed a quick muffin and croissant on our own….only to be interrupted (happily) by Thatcher who arrived on his bike on the way to his early morning sailing lesson.
Monday, prior to heading off to work for a few hours, I hit Helmut’s on my own and ate my muffin at the end of the new Rockport Breakwater. A great way to organize my thoughts and do some strategizing before leaving town to start my day.
Do I need to add words to get my point across about this picture?
Like I could write that you should go there and try this but do I really need to take the time or does the picture motivate you to want to mosey on over and order one up?
I am often in Rockport to preside at one the morning Masses on Sunday. When I have the earlier (8:30AM) Mass, I like to go down afterwards to Bearskin Neck for a walk and for breakfast. I’ve tried a couple of places, and one of my favorites is Helmut’s Strudel, down towards the end of Bearskin Neck, on the right.
Ham and cheese croissant – my breakfast last Sunday – delicious!
Service with a smile:
They have a selection of wonderful-looking pastries. My goal is to try one of each eventually…
They also have a patio with a nice view, where you can sip your coffee and munch on your strudel.
