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."

We had delicious coffee, hot chocolate and a lemon bar, along with purchasing some "chocolate medallions" for enjoying later. Worth the visit to enjoy some local flavor. Highly recommend the Mocha hot chocolate--coffee with fudge milk!

Definitely the place to get a mid rail trail pick me up coffee!
I didn't try anything else, so couldn't comment on the chocolate. But it certainly seemed very popular.

The sparrow has a lot to choose from if you're craving something sweet. I'm not obsessed with it like a lot of people seem to be, but the hot chocolates and frozen hot chocolates are always a tasty treat. Can be a bit on the pricey side when everything adds up.

The eatery offers many different types of teas, coffees and hot chocolates, along with a lot of desserts and candies. The food and drinks are very good. You can expect to pay Cape Cod prices, but also receive non-Cape Cod serving sizes. This is a very good place to buy food from.
