We couldn't resist a picture of an alcoholic salted caramel drink that was on a poster in front of the restaurant so we had to stop in and try one. The drink was super yummy although pricey at $13.99 a drink. It was very creamy...More

Don't let the somewhat flamboyant exterior put you off, the Purple Feather is a must visit place if you're in need of cake, chocolate, fudge, ice cream or any combination of these. The extensive choice of homemade cakes, ice creams, chocolates and fudge is a...More

Great choice of delicious gelato (ice cream made with milk and not cream, lots of flavour, less guilt!). We also got lucky and were there on a sting day so tasted chocolates and fudges made in store. Well worth a visit.

Service and food were excellent here, from my lobster roll to hubby's homemade macaroni and cheese with bacon. Be sure to save room for dessert. There's a case full of pastries, one of chocolates, and another of gelato. Definitely avoid this place if you're dieting!

We had a good lunch here in early May. Three of us had paninis and one a lobster roll. Everyone enjoyed their sandwiches. The baked goods looked delicious but none of us had room to even consider sharing a treat.

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.
