Description: 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.

It's a dessert extravaganza! There are some offerings here that I've personally had it tried that are fantastic like the Panna cotta and the Cherry Fruit Tart. Yum! The Carrot Cake though tasty was a little hard around the exterior. One thing you should try though is the Chocolate dipped Bacon! The dark chocolate version is my favorite!
There is seating indoors and some outside. Outside is pet friendly. Coffees, teas and gelato are also available and so are lunch selections. Enjoy!

Ice Cream was pretty good, but not as good as Lewis Bros. Its sort of a strange place, ice cream, drinks, fudge, meals. Not sure what they are going for.

Dear Harlan8
Thank you for your review of Purple Feather Cafe & Treatery
It is hard to respond to your review as you were comparing our Gelato with another shops ice cream. Our gelato is about 1/3 the fat of the other ice cream, but it is OK if you like that better.
As for not "getting" the Purple Feather thing let me try to explain.
Purple Feather is a year round cafe. We offer different things because we want to be able to appeal to a range of different people and their needs.
We try to be innovative, which is why we are the only place in Provincetown where you can have a "Gelato Cocktail" while sitting on our patio and watching the world go by.
I understand if you don't appreciate this, but most of my customers seem to like the idea.

Had a lunch of pastries and puddings and sweets here, and plan to do it annually for the rest of my life. Wonderful wait staff, casual fun atmosphere and gelato to go - a total winner right in the middle of town.

Best chocolate cake I've ever had. Extremely good carrot cake as well. Good price. Don't get desert anywhere else in Ptown!
