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 place to satisfy a caffeine or sugar craving”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Hands down, the best coffee and cappucino I have ever had. To top it off, I had a slice of Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie along with my coffee. If I lived anywhere near this place, I would have to visit the gym daily. A must stop for any Orleans, MA visitor.

“A tradition 23 years in the making”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

I've been going to the Chocolate Sparrow since I was able to walk. My family doesn't come here on vacation without making stops here for ice cream and coffee every night after dinner. A MUST SEE

“Outstanding baked goods”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for a nightcap of coffee and dessert with family. Great baked goods - especially pies (blueberry pie was excellent). Coffee decent but nothing special. Extensive menu and comfortable atmosphere. Service OK, but a little lackluster. Still, well worth the stop.

“Delicious beverages!”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

A late afternoon stop at the Hot Chocolate Sparrow was perfect! The frozen hot chocolate was awesome! There were lots of sweets and baked goods that looked absolutely delicious! The shop also offers some sweet gifts. A must visit in Orleans!

“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.
