Description: Purple Feather is a true Mom & Pop place. All of our chocolate confections are hand made in our own kitchens. We also make all our own gelato, desserts and fudge. Our Hot chocolate and Mocha Lattes are considered the best by many of our guests. We use only "George Howell" coffee & espresso, and "Mem" loose leaf teas We make and serve panini and sandwiches for very reasonable price. Our baked mac & cheese is an old family recipe. New for 2013 we now have an Alcohol License and serve Beer, Wine, Cordials and Cocktails. Try our new Ginger Martini before dinner or a fresh Espresso Martini after There is something for everyone at Purple Feather

My partner and I had lunch recently here. Ugh. Never again. Lobster mac for 15 dollars? It was dry n bland. My partner couldnt eat it. I forced it down at that price. Lobster rough n chewy like overcooked steak. And the clam chowder was watery and not cooked-potatoes in chowder shouldn't crunch. By the time lunch was over I... More

Went on opening day 3/15/2014 - ordered 3 different chocolates that the group shared. Very tasty. Service on the other hand was terrible. We were ignored at the counter and not acknowledged or thanked when we left. Hopefully service improves for the summer and tourists.

I am very sorry you had a difficult experience when you visited our Cafe on 03/15/14. As you noted it was our first day back from vacation and it was only my wife and I to handle the cafe operation. In addition we were much busier than we had anticipated which kept us both running all day. Having said that,... More

We stumbled into the purple feather and seeing as it was an unseasonably warm Saturday we had some tiramisu gelato. I am so glad I did- it was delicious.

Ann, Peter and the staff are absolutely wonderful and so friendly. This is a daily stop for us when we are in town. The air was very crisp and the Hot Cocoa with Peppermint Schnapps was just what was needed to take the chill out. The chocolate, sandwiches and soup and great! See you very soon!!!

Stopped in with my mother-in-law and my daughter to grab something to eat. Little did we know about the dessert, chocolate and gelato cases. My daughter, who is eleven, got busy checking things out and deciding what we would take back to my husband. We ordered paninis to eat in house. I had a jerk chicken panini which was delicious....
