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."

Coffee in the morning, an eye-opening delight. Iced coffee with lunch and treats for the kiddos quick, savory and sweet all in one stop. In the evening, treats for the whole family, the perfect way to top off a perfectly amazing week in Orleans.

I've been here probably 10-15 times in the past 20 days. Great service, friendly patrons and wonderful coffee. My favorite is the mocha sparrow. If only they could bottle the hot chocolate starter so i could take it back to Texas.

Took our 9- and 10-year-old summer campers out for the afternoon, and the first stop was the Sparrow. had some decent sandwiches from their limited selection and "Frozen Hot chocolate", which was tasty and sweet. Didn't buy any candy to go but the selection looked pretty extensive.

the coffee is good, but there's not much more to it..... a few snacks, breakfast things, cookies and a chocolate section, okay, not great....
