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 thoroughly enjoyed the 2 wraps (BLT and chicken curry) we had here for lunch. Fresh ingredients, great service, quiet spot, excellent views.

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.

Took an early morning walk from our B&B and found this great little coffee shop. Very good Latte and a most wonderful water view. What is not to like? They also had amazingly good looking pastries and served breakfast sandwiches, but our B&B offered homemade goodies, so we did not try them.

We got to Rockport before 10:00am when the shops open up. It was a great idea as parking is tough after that so we had plenty of parking options at that time of the day and we had time for a leisurely coffee/hot chocolate and scone at Bean and Leaf Cafe. Quait and cute small shop with a little room... More

Bean and Leaf Cafe is unique in Rockport in offering good coffee and food with a great harbor view. Their food includes pastry, sandwiches and salads, freshly made. The dining room almost hangs over the Old Harbor of Rockport, with views out to the bay. The place can be quite busy in peak seasons and weekends, but most times you... More
