On a cold sunday evening, when most of the cape was going to bed, me and my travel companion were desperately looking for a coffee place and lucky, we stumbled on this late night snackery (well, as late as 10pm) and sampled their absolutely delicious hot chocolate - thick, chocolaty and rich!! Also, to complement the yummy cocoa, I also... More

No visit to Cape Cod is complete without a visit to Hot Chocolate Sparrow for an ice cream, cake or hot/iced drink. It's an institution and well worth a visit. It is ideally located on the Cape Cod Rail Trail too.

Enjoyed the coffee and dessert the turtle cheesecake was out of this world. However, if you like real NY style bagels don't waste your money.

We love this shop. Every time we go, we bring back unbelievable chocolate treats made on site. It's my go-to stop for excellent coffee, my husband's for gorgeous ice cream. Add in ridiculously decadent cakes and cookies. They even do wonderful sandwiches and tasty soups. Always a line, even off-season, so be prepared to wait. It's worth it!

We ate here before and had a fine experience but this time not so good. Our grilled sandwiches were burnt -- not just brown but black and awful tasting. We had to take them back. They gave us new sandwiches but the turkey was mostly fatty soggy skin which we had to remove and left us with a few meager... More

We visited Orleans for 2 days and stopped in here twice. Loved it. Great coffee and lots of dessert choices. We wished we could've gone more!

Nice pit stop from the bike trail. Good soft serve ice cream though my husband prefers a more grainy texture. I had a frozen hot chocolate. It was good but needed to be more chocolatey.

I tried it here with my family two years in a row. Both times I was totally turned off. I remember thinking that it was a very chaotic experience last year but wanted to give it a second chance. My husband and two children and I were hoping to order croissants and coffee. The woman who took our order couldn't... More
