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.

Reviewed August 7, 2014

This is a super-fun place for all who appreciate rich gelato in fun waffle cones as well as a casefull of pastries and beautifully crafted yummy chocolates and treats. While My husband enjoyed the mojito sorbet to and my younger son raved about the strawberry sorbet to, my older son indulged in the double chocolate and I couldn't stop ordering the pistachio. We always got waffle cones so that we could enjoy them as we walked on commercial street. The staff were very nice, and offered samples generously. Worth going for sure!

“An Absolute Must Visit when in Ptown!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Flavorful...decadent...delicious...home made, Beverages, food and gelato all with excellent service! We were so impressed we went back to take some delights home. Had the Toasted Coconut Alcoholic drink...I felt like I was on an island. The lobster panini was packed with lobster. Husband had a turkey cranberry panini and a mudslide... Also wonderful. They are generous with offering samples of their GELATO...14 yes 14 unique flavors...the coconut one and pistachio and hot fudge sundae flavors just wonderful. You will have to go back as their desserts, gelatos,food menu, beverages leave you wanting to try more and more. Staff and owner very personable. Lots of live in this gem.

“Sweet and Savory---in One Spot”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

A great cafe for coffee, sandwiches, incredible desserts, homemade candy, and a wide selection of gelato. Great for a quick lunch or a later evening snack. Literally something for everyone--once you get past the line of people salivating over the chocolate selection. A one-of-a-kind spot in Provincetown--not to be missed!

“Great place for dessert and coffee”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We had a very enjoyable dessert. We both had gelato. They have a large selection of flavors. I had the chocolate peanut butter. It was very creamy and flavorful. I also had an iced decaf coffee. We sat inside- but there a few outside tables too. We also had good service.
