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

“Excellent treats and a great staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Salted Caramel Gelato with Bacon, Bacon Pineapple Fudge, and Mousse to die for can be found here. We had a great time trying all the new products and delicious flavors. The staff is great and everything we tried was outstanding.

“Creative treats, friendly staff - a delight!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We were lucky enough to visit the Purple Feather during their Annual Spring Chocolate Festival, which meant we were able to sample new creations! The staff is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about their products!

We had already purchased a box of one dozen truffles to take away with us, and were sitting down in the café to indulge ourselves in chocolate mousse (wonderful, rich and creamy, by the way!!). I noticed the selection of fudge, and so the sampling began! Our first choosing was maple fudge loaded with pineapple and bacon - which, to our delight, WORKED!! This concoction sounds terrible, but on the contrary, was fabulous!! We were then treated to other flavours of fudge, fillings for truffles, gelato, and a fantastish dark chocolate bark infused with rose petals and peppercorns (try this one!!). We wound up adding the chocolate bark to our take away purchase.

The truffles we chose were a wonderfully varied selection of flavours - dark chocolate, milk chocolate, rum, raspberry, sex on the beach (white chocolate blended with peach Schnapps!). Admittedly, I am a truffle snob - the truffles here were my least favourite of the chocolates we sampled. They do not rate with truffles from La Maison du Chocolat, Teuscher, or Leonidas, but I will give them big points for creativity with their blends of ingredients.

A purchase from The Purple Feather is an excellent indulgence for yourself to take away from Provincetown, or a lovely gift to bring back to friends/family. The prices are incredibly reasonable - FAR less than the other chocolatiers that I mentioned. The Purple Feather also offers online ordering, so more of the chocolate bark will be making its way to my home soon!!

Everything was great about this cute lil' cafe! From the fireplace running on a chilly breezy April day, to the delicious bread they use for their sandwiches to their flavor able hot coco to their homemade candy treats! Mmmmmm! And the staff are so friendly!
We loved it so much, we went back a second time during our weekend get-away!

“Dessert and Beverage Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

What ever kind of dessert you're looking for you'll find at the Purple
Feather. From cakes to chocolate treats, ice cream or other frozen specialties. The counter display makes selection a long process becasue you want to sample everything.
