We popped in here to avoid drowning in the deluge we found ourselves in. It is off the Main Street but close to the harbour and it serves gelato, coffee/drinks and the naughtiest cakes and snacks for miles around. We ordered coffee and snack and paid direct. We seated ourselves and enjoyed. It is a quirky place and the people... More

Gelato was fantastic, chai latte not so much and ended up throwing it out. The baked goods and candy look delicious, but the latter appears very overpriced

Where else can you get Lucky Charms ice cream?!?! It was tasty! And I couldn't resist the coconut treats in the chocolate case. Our only disappointment was that we didn't visit here earlier in our vacation! We'd have made it a nightly stop:-)

This place was recommmended by our BNB host and we went there for dessert after dinner. It has a small patio in front with a few chairs, and a number of small tables inside. There's a fairly large selection of pastries and desserts, such as, cream filled croissants and individual round cheesecakes. I had a cheesecake (about $9) with lemon... More

We considered eating dinner at the Purple Feather Cafe & Treatery, but I saw many dishes of prepared macaroni and cheese that were made for the night's dinner, and that was concerning. We ate elsewhere, and returned for gelato. The gelato is definitely worth it! They have a wide variety of flavors, and you get a good amount for the... More

I would not recommend this place for dining. May be good for gelato and baked items, but their sandwiches, guacamole etc was not good.

The Purple Feather can meet the needs of all your taste requirements. You can have sandwiches, fine chocolates, gelato and who can't forget the fudge. We love to stop in and get a chocolate covered pretzel, they are delicious.

The gelato was amazing and a lot of food for the money. I'm so glad that we stopped here - the gelato hit the spot

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.
