don't order a frappe in this place!! They advertise it as a frappe and make it with soft serve... if you ask for hard ice cream (which is how a frappe is made) THEY CHARGE YOU EXTRA ! An OVERDRATED OVERPRICED TOURIST TRAP.

this used to be a nice place to get a drink of coffee or a nice frozen treat. the service is quite horrible, and it continues to diminish. The decor consists of puke pink, and chair settings that are literally on top of one another.

I visit this gem of a coffee, chocolate and snack place every time I visit Orleans. It always warm and inviting with the best fare between Hyannis and P-town. Highly recommended.

Great coffee, great ambience, great staff, great food and a place where you can meet friends or enjoy the best coffee around while reading the paper or reading on your iPad. The Germans have a great word for places like the Hot Chocolate Sparrow " Gemeutlichkeit ", cozy, snug, pleasant. Go for lunch and try the # 1 panini with... More

The Sparrow is the best coffee house in Orleans. The food and the atmosphere are wonderful. You always meet someone you know there. And the chocolates are to die for. The sugar free dark chocolate is the best.

What a great place. I always go there when I'm in Orleans for a cup of good coffee. I've never ordered anything to eat for lunch, but by the crowds, I'd say the food must be quite good. The chocolate though, oh, the chocolate. I can't seem to get away without buying one of their home-made chocolate treats. It's delicious.

The Sparrow is the local spot to grab a coffee, more than 10 flavors, and hot chocolate the best or just to sit with friends and use your computer. Marjorie Sparrow originally started out in a small shop and now makes wonderful chocolates traditional and whimsical. My favorite is a giant aspirin tablet! So many choices including greeting cards!One can't... More

My husband and I stopped in on a friend's recommendations, and I'm thrilled we did. Coffee and baked goods were outstanding. They had several different coffee flavors each time we visited. We drove up from Hyannis one day, down from Provincetown once and had to stop in again on our way off the Cape. I'm looking forward to our next... More
