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."

“BEST COFFEE IN TOWN”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

The Chocolate Sparrow is a must for me for baked goods and light snacking[sandwiches&sweets].They do not serve meals as a large restaurant does,but what they do serve is to die for.Great little place for a quick stop for ice cream, sweets,coffee andsnacks.

Very good bakery items. Tea and coffee selections are plentiful. Always tempted to get some homemade candy!

“A Chocolate Lover's Paradise!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

This is a great place to pick up gifts or to fill a craving. The staff is friendly and the desserts are outstanding. There is an excellent selection of chocolates, gift and card items as well. A place you must stop at when in Orleans!

“Good hot chocolate”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Sunday morning and this place was busy but the staff are efficient and the queue moved quickly. Was not sure about the fudge sauce in the hot chocolate (having sent back a hot chocolate last week which was just too sweet). However here it was fine - the fudge sauce does give a different taste to the drink which I guess is their USP!
Couldn't finish it as even the small was quite large. Good value for money as well.

“A Family Favorite”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

This is the place to go whether you're:
- Coming back from the beach or a day on your bikes and you want some deliciously rich ice cream
- Looking for a wonderfully rich, decadent dessert
- Or just needing a fix for your chocolate addiction.

Lots to choose from and the smell is amazing. I'm not a big sweet eater but even I can't resist.

And this time of year, after a brisk afternoon, there's just nothing like one of their hot chocolates to warm you up from the inside out.
