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

Great late lunch spot. Had 2 paninis (pastrami and turkey club) but stand out was mac and cheese...perfect combo of cheeses and shell pasta. Chai latte also very good.

We tried the cupcakes, cakes, and hot chocolate there, and they were all great. Next time, we will definitely come back for the gelatos, which I am sure will have more taste that the other super-creamy homemade ice cream shops around.

Not sure how they do it but they have to have one of the best hot chocolates you can get anywhere. We stopped when it was starting to get a bit cold at night and it was a great stop to warm up. Also a big selection of desserts, I did try the chocolate covered bacon, I have nothing to... More

We stop here at least 3 times a week during our annual Cape Cod stay. The gelato is to die for, and the small patio out from is a great spot to see all the P-Town action. Great espresso too!

Fabulous ice cream and lots of desserts to choose from. Some seating inside and they seem to be busy all the time. Chocolate lava cake is wonderful!

We visit the Purple Feather every time we are in Provincetown. The best gelato this side of Italy. So many flavors it is hard to choose. The fruit flavors never fail. Chocolate is special too.

The place to go in Provincetown if you are looking for a heavenly dessert. Beautifully rendered, delectably flavored and textured, and served with a genuine passion, The Purple Feather is a keeper. I'll be going back.
