Purple Feather is a small cafe located on the popular, touristy Commercial Street in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The catchy decor caught our eye as we were browsing up and down the street for a place to eat.

This cafe offers a very tempting selection of homemade desserts, however, we were just looking for lunch this time around.


Purple Feather offers a coffee bar, homemade desserts and gelato, as well as a small lunch menu. Menu items include sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, and soups. I appreciate the fact that all the food is homemade as we try to stick with healthier, local dining options. Prices were more reasonable than I was anticipating for the area, however, the portions were very small.

I ordered "The Bike Path" sandwich, which included lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, onions, and peppers on 7 grain bread. A small bag of Cape Cod potato chips was served with the sandwich. The sandwich was delicious, although a bit small. I do appreciate that they offer vegetarian selections when so many places neglect to offer a variety of allergy friendly options.

Mike was not as pleased with his Macaroni and Cheese. He felt the sauce was a bit too bland and the portion absolutely too small. I tried a bite and agreed that my sandwich was much tastier.

If we ever come back to Purple Feather, we will probably simply order a coffee and dessert! There were so many tempting desserts available. Purple Feather has won "The Best Candy Shop on Cape Cod" award 3 years in a row from Cape Cod Magazine. Definitely looks delicious - I am excited to try it out sometime!


Service was very friendly. The manager greeted us upon arrival and told us about the specials of the day. Food came out very fast and there was no wait to be seated.


The Purple Feather has a European cafe style charm. I enjoyed the clean, eclectic decor inside. It is very small but the vibe is cozy. Purple Feather is in a great location for sipping a coffee while people watching on Commercial Street.

Final Remarks

Purple Feather is a good place to grab a cup of coffee, take a break, and people watch. The food is a bit pricey for what you get, however, this is what usually happens in all tourist destinations. Grab a piece of homemade chocolate, a window seat, and enjoy the scene out on Commercial Street!
