Gelato, in a multitude of delicious flavors and presentations. Small cakes, tarts, chocolates, and other sweets. Oh, and they also serve "real" food, if you can tear yourself away from all the sinful stuff. Very worth a visit.

They may have savory food at Purple Feathers but folks go for the sweets, and man, they have a ton, from gelato to bonbons. Most of it is excellent, and the smell, amazing. Some patrons love the “oddly” shaped chocolate based on body parts. But...More

Nice toasted sandwiches, delicious vegan wraps. Friendly staff, good service and a lot of sweet chocolate deserts, mini slabs-squares, etc, and they do ice cream. Restroom is good, clean and spacious. It’s right in the middle of town.

We had both a pastry and gelato from Purple Feather Cafe and found both to be of good quality. I recommend when your sweet tooth needs a fix. Has seating to sit at and enjoy your treats.

A huge deluge of rain started just as we were walking past, so decided the Purple Feather Cafe would be a great place for lunch. It did not disappoint. I had the cranberry bog sandwich, which was like having Thanksgiving in August. My husband had...More

If you visit no other restaurant in Ptown, visit here! This is the fun spirit and style that defines this town. There is fudge, gelato to die for, desserts, chocolates (including very naughty ones to hide from the view of your kids), drinks, and food....More

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.
