The best flavors of gelato in town! Be sure to check out their candies and other sweets. The staff are friendly and do offer samples of the gelato so you can find something you really like.

Stopped in for lunch, had the homemade mushroom soup and the signature Lobster roll. We enjoyed both, the soup was extremely tasty and the lobster roll uses only claw meat. The owner thinks body meat is too chewy. The meat was very tender and tasty....More

We stopped by this place for a cup of coffee and truffle. Great! Decor is nice and would be a nice place to linger. Dont miss the white and milk chocolate penises near the door for sale.

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.
