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. We also serve Beer, Wine, Cordials and Cocktails. Try our new Ginger Martini before dinner or a new gelato cocktail after. There is something for everyone at Purple Feather

It's a dessert extravaganza! There are some offerings here that I've personally had it tried that are fantastic like the Panna cotta and the Cherry Fruit Tart. Yum! The Carrot Cake though tasty was a little hard around the exterior. One thing you should try though is the Chocolate dipped Bacon! The dark chocolate version is my favorite! There is... More

Ice Cream was pretty good, but not as good as Lewis Bros. Its sort of a strange place, ice cream, drinks, fudge, meals. Not sure what they are going for.

Dear Harlan8 Thank you for your review of Purple Feather Cafe & Treatery It is hard to respond to your review as you were comparing our Gelato with another shops ice cream. Our gelato is about 1/3 the fat of the other ice cream, but it is OK if you like that better. As for not "getting" the Purple Feather... More

Had a lunch of pastries and puddings and sweets here, and plan to do it annually for the rest of my life. Wonderful wait staff, casual fun atmosphere and gelato to go - a total winner right in the middle of town.

On the advise of a comment by the owner ,we returned to have lunch. We figured if the lunch is as good as the ice cream ,then we were in for a treat. The best way to describe the lunch experience is 'Sadly Disappointed' I ordered a cup of Chowder and the Lobster Mac and Cheese. The chowder had mush... More

But then you realize that the Gelato is soooooo rich that you cant even finish what they give you. Amazing. Not like ice cream. Once you go chocolate gelato, youll never go back.

OK, best gelato ever. Our whole group felt it was the best we had throughout our trip up the east coast. They will also put it into an adult beverage if you would like. The fudge and other items in the store looked really good, but we didn't try any of their other goods.

The Purple Feather has delicious gelato AND when I ordered a waffle bowl for only $1, it was made right in front of me!!! Sample a few flavors and then make your choice. Very friendly staff. I had a scoop of pistachio and a scoop of snickers. Both excellent. This ice cream shop also serves drinks, limited food (lobster rolls),... More
