Good for desert and people watching. Gay atmosphere yet comfortable for any straight family. Kitchy decor.

My partner and a friend of ours stopped here for coffee. We ended up staying for a full breakfast which was a great choice. The service and food was terrific, as was the atmosphere. They also have fantastic drinks....even for breakfast.

We were in town for the day between Christmas and New Year's, window-shopping and looking for a place to have a coffee and a little something else. Very happy to see this place open, so went in and got coffee and pie. We sat by the fireplace and warmed up while enjoying our dessert. The pastry, cookies and chocolate all... More

The dark hot chocolate is just the way to get warm in a tasty and decadent way. It's our warm-up stop while window shopping and walking Commercial street on New year's day.

We have stopped in many times to have ice cream / gelato and it is always wonderful. On our most recent trip, we stopped in after seeing a sign in the window offering "Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Martini's" (need I say more?). We sat by the fireplace and had two rounds of these fabulous drinks! The service was excellent and... More

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!

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.
