On our inaugural visit to Provincetown we got to meet up with some old friends and new and spend two afternoons catching up while enjoying the hospitality of the Purple Feather. Excellent pastries, teas and coffees and the relaxed ambiance made for the perfect location in which to spend a wintry afternoon. This location epitomizes the friendliness that exudes throughout...

Chocolate lava cake was average, moist and chocolatey. Not especially rich or flavorful. I also had a milk hot chocolate, which was good but not the mind-blowing experience others seem to have had. I was a bit put off by the seemingly random penis and vagina shaped chocolates on display. Not that I'm a prude, I just didn't understand...felt like... More

We had lunch here on the first day of our visit this time, and it was such a nice experience that we went back again the next day. The service is outstanding! Very friendly wait staff and chef. After a tasty sandwich, we were treated to a delicious piece of dark chocolate that they were making for the upcoming Thanksgiving... More

Whether you love white, milk or dark you're in the right place! The chocolate is spectacular! The cookies are soft, warm and as big as your head! The staff is warm and friendly!

Yes, their fudge is that good. There are the usual places to buy fudge and there is Purple Feather. They let you taste the flavors and the price/portion ratio is very generous. They had an amazing gelato and dessert case which I hope to try next visit.

We could not get enough of the Purple Feather! The gelato was incredible and so was the mocha coffee. We did not try any of the desserts but, they all looked amazing. Great little cafe and a must visit while in town!

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.
