The Chocolate Sparrow is housed in a small house on Main Street with a loyal set of customers who return every summer for their fill of candy. A great selection in one room of assorted chocolates and fudge is complemented with a dazzling display of some of America's favorite candy bars and penny candy in another. It is a guaranteed...

While I was in Orleans for the weekend I was fortunate enough to visit the Chocolate Sparrow. The ice cream was yummy and creamy. Delicious. I brought a chocolate croissant home and couldn't stop eating this flaky, scrumptious pastry. The Chocolate Sparrow was crowded but the staff was very organized, friendly and things moved quickly along.

Very good collection of what I think are actually locally made chocolates, plus the other standard serious candy store items

Have only tried the ice cream and continue to crave the raspberry with chocolate though the large menu options posted on the wall of the back of the shop make me want to return daily for the other exotic flavors. Portions are large and it can be crowded with limited outdoor seating for all. Nonetheless, it is worthmany visits!

We have been coming here since they had penny candy, and it's always fun to browse through the handmade and commercially produced items. I prefer the handmade chocolates and of course the fudge! This is the best fudge I've ever eaten! It's so good that every time I get fudge anywhere else, it's not at all good compared to this.... More

My fiance and I love this place! The coffee is delicious and their chocolates are wonderful as well. It can get pretty crowded inside. There are a couple display stands that take up some much needed space, but it's also usually pretty busy so I can't say what it would be like if it wasn't always full of people. Very... More

Great chocolate choices of chocolate and desserts and coffee. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They had nice chocolate choices and tasted very different then just a regular chocolate dessert place.

The Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans is magnificent, but in Wellfleet, all they have is candy & chocolate. The ice cream in the back is Emack & Bollo's.....perfectly fine on a good weather day, but no indoor seating.

Lots of different kinds of chocolate here. Very good quality, fun to visit. They have some chocolate pre-bagged at a discounted rate.
