Went there 3 times for our caffeine needs during our 5 day stay. Good brewed coffee and espresso drinks. Try the purple feather mocha latte. Down side is that it can be a bit slow, so don't go if you're on a schedule.

It was raining and I stopped there to have coffee. The coffee was not good. I did not have any treats as they did not look appealing to me. The only positive thing is that they have seating inside. It was miserable outside. So it...More

Wonderful fresh brewed coffee inplus, all varieties plus, OMG the most picture perfect desserts that taste better than they look, and homemade gelato and, if that weren't enough, amazing chocolates. They offer sandwiches, mixed drinks too, but you can see where my interests are.

Thanks for coming in and giving us a great review. Just a quick clarification: We use fresh hot espresso over our gelato to make an Affogato, then the gelato makes it cold. Mmm thinking about it maybe I should go make myself one right now?

Gelato, in a multitude of delicious flavors and presentations. Small cakes, tarts, chocolates, and other sweets. Oh, and they also serve "real" food, if you can tear yourself away from all the sinful stuff. Very worth a visit.

They may have savory food at Purple Feathers but folks go for the sweets, and man, they have a ton, from gelato to bonbons. Most of it is excellent, and the smell, amazing. Some patrons love the “oddly” shaped chocolate based on body parts. But...More

So many places to get ice cream in Provincetown but nothing beats the quality gelato from Purple Feather. A must experience when we visit town.

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
Purple Feather now serves Breakfast till noon and the rest of our food menu till 8 PM. Try our Lobster Roll or Baked Mac & Cheese. We also serve panini, sandwiches & salads for very reasonable price. Our baked mac & cheese is an old family recipe.
We now have a full bar!
Try our Mermaids Orgasm before dinner or a new gelato cocktail after.
