“When you visit the Purple Feather, the only difficulty you’ll have is in making a selection.”
As you walk down Commercial Street, watch for the bear standing outside and enter a garden of delights at The Purple Feather Café and Treatery, an emporium for handmade chocolates, delicious gelato, and inspired coffee and cocktail concoctions. You can order a meal—lobster mac & cheese, panini, homemade jerk chicken—but the real ecstasy comes with dessert: cakes dripping with chocolate ganache, fruit tarts, molten lava cake, and smooth New York cheesecakes! In business for 27 years, the Purple Feather is starting the season with amazing Easter goodies, eggs and bunnies like you’ve never seen them before. And this year Easter falls on Patriots’ Day weekend, ideal for the annual Purple Feather scavenger hunt during which 20 chocolate sculptures are placed in shops up and down Commercial Street, with both daily and grand prize drawings. When you visit the Purple Feather, the only difficulty you’ll have is in making a selection. Owner Peter Okun’s favorites? “If I had to choose just one, it would be the double dark chocolate truffles.” Yum!
