Right next to Marine Specialties, Shop Therapy and Lobster Pot, perhaps one of the must-go places in Provincetown is Purple Feather Cafe and Treatery. Just across the street from Lands End Hardware (east of Provincetown center), the place is certainly the kind most locals have gotten used to.

Those who step into the establishment will be greeted by the Gelato and Sorbetto on display, and the smell of cupcakes baking or waffles being made will give a hint of what’s to come.

A wide selection of paninis, sandwiches, and specialty foods like the homemade macaroni and cheese are there for those who want to have a hearty meal before enjoying the dessert guests saw earlier. All these can be experienced indoors or outdoors at the pleasure of the guest. Either way, there’s full table service. There’s also an option to have the orders for takeout as well.

They also offer the best coffee and loose leaf teas Provincetown has to offer. The same could also be said for their wide selection of cocktails, beer, martinis, and even wine - all of which are perfect for matching meals for nightcaps.

All in all, The Purple Feather is a place where family and friends can have a good time. In fact, the place is so popular that anyone who wants to mean another person can just say “meet me at the Feather, and they’ll know exactly what that person meant.
