I do love their coffee but I choose my time to go in off-hours only because of the overall noise level. Great stop on the bike trail.

Sparrow was recommended to us by a couple of the locals during our short vacation in Orleans MA. Before going there for an afternoon snack I had an image in my mind as to what to expect from a Cape Cod cafe and I was almost "spot on". Friendly staff and an extensive menu of beverages greeted us. My wife... More

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

There was lots of old people having fun and getting some sweet or ice-cream.I am italian and I say it was a good place , not expansive , but the place is nothing amazing.Possibly you can have your ice-cream outside in a little balcony.Inside too much people.Just near the centre,near the bike-path.Just go out and turn left if you arrive...

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!
