We stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious nachos and margaritas! They even grilled up some chicken for us to add to the nachos!

Firstly was pricing. A KIDDIE cup of gelato was $4.55; a small cup was $5.85! The person taking orders didn't understand English and didn't know the business check out process. While the gelato was good, the staff person we dealt with was incompetent and slow...More

First time stopping here. Wish I'd done it sooner. The mojito gelato was amazing. I know I'll be back. Service was excellent. We sat inside because it was breezy outside, but both options were lovely.

This is definitely a treat. Chocolates, gelato, cakes and fudge to die for. Just go and indulge yourself, there plenty to choose from! Seating available inside and out. Perfect stop for a little bit of what you fancy.

Pretty little restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating on the main drag. Beautiful pastries and handmade ice cream and gelato. Sadly, the vaunted mac and cheese was hot and hearty, but bland. The grilled cheese was what I could have made at home. The americano...More

Gina, I am sorry you had a less than excellent experience in our cafe. Our baked Mac & Cheese is made with 4 different cheeses, onions, garlic and a few other special herbs and spices. We also tend to use very little salt in our...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.
