Description: With the love of chocolate and a loan, we started The Chocolate Sparrow, a simple candy shop, in 1989 in North Eastham. Gradually we learned the art of making fine chocolate and the business of selling it. In 1991 we opened a summer shop in Wellfleet. Two years later in Orleans, we opened The Hot Chocolate Sparrow, a cafe complete with coffee from around the world, desserts of every indulgence, and our own hand-dipped chocolates. Here we could offer specialty coffee drinks in a sophisticated but welcoming atmosphere. We have grown into a local institution, open early morning to late night, every day of the year except Christmas. We created a place where people can connect. Our cafe is recognized Cape-wide, our chocolate is sent all over the country, and our coffee, desserts, and fudge have been voted #1 numerous times in various local surveys. No wonder we are recognized as "The Best on the Lower Cape."

Love this place. A must to stop in for a special treat. We also had a quick lunch and the lentil soup was very tasty, too.

We stopped here for a light lunch and had a turkey sandwich and soup. My husband had a cup of hot chocolate. Everything was very good. We came back the next night for dessert and coffee. We had the red velvet cake and it was delicious. The prices seemed to be right on par with other places. Don't forget, a cup of coffee at Dunkin Donuts is about $3.00 and you can go there anytime; this was a special treat while on vacation. We did not have any of the chocolates, but they smelled wonderful.
We were there during off season, so the wait was not too bad.
The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. There appeared to be a lot of locals there. I will certainly go to Sparrows again when I visit the Cape.

We stopped in here several times during the week after Labor Day and never had any trouble with crowds. The iced coffees are just wonderful, and we made sure to bring home some chocolates for family and friends (hard to believe it all made it home!).

There is free wifi, and is a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The kind of place where strangers strike up conversations easily. The gift shop across the street has lots of cool items and funky t-shirts for sale, as well as more artistic souvenirs.

All ages seem to find their way to this one of a kind coffee house at all times of year. Be thankful for the time you'll spend in line before you get to place your order, because it will take that long to scan the chalkboard menu and make a selection. Agoraphobics take notice: this place is packed.
