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

best expresso

I like "ristreto" or short to make the expresso with less water--it gives it more UMPF. They had a triple expresso "short" that was perfect! The chocolate peanut butter was sinful.

My family and I ate here several times on our trip to the Cape in 2011. The food was great and we liked the owner. So we looked forward to returning this year. Well, we went today and sadly found it a different experience. The staff gave the impression of trying to rush us into our gellato purchase and were... More

Sit down and relax, with a specialty coffee and pastry and watch the people go by. But don't miss thevbest gelato this side of the ocean. Can't make a trip to P-town without stopping in at the purple feather!

Normally I don't like sweets, but I knew that here I could get one or two small items and indulge a bit. I ended up trying about six different things but had NO regrets! There's something for everyone. I had a ginger chocolate truffle, sex on the beach truffle, spicy dark chocolate truffle, coconut/chocolate, almond brittle..... and then I had... More

Yesterday we stopped by the Purple Feather for dessert. We shared the apple crisp pie and the chocolate cake/cappuccino mousse "cupcake". Both were wonderful! I had a cup of tea (loose leaf English breakfast). Tea was a treat! The owner came over to talk to us and gave us a little history of the restaurant. We had already eaten lunch... More

We've been to this place several times and enjoyed it each time. Lots of good and interesting flavors of gelato to choose from along with some of the standards. the quality and freshness of the gelato is good. I always want to go back for more. It's my favorite gelato/ice cream place in Ptown. Nice atmosphere inside and out, so... More
