Only just made it here before closing, but had a lovely welcome. Coffee and food was delicious and staff very attentive. Good value for money.

This is a great little cafe: the coffee delicious, the food always tasty and as an added bonus you can buy freshly baked bread, their baguettes are the best I ever eaten. To top it off the staff are fabulous and there's always a bowl of water for the dogs who pass by.

Our first visit to Hobart required a good tasting latte, following reviews online Pigeon Hole delivered. Strong soy latte was lovely, made with care and gorgeous tasting beans. Also had a warm bowl of porridge which was subtle in flavour and delicious. About a 15 to 20 minute walk from town it's worth the short hike. Will definitely come back... More

Saw this cafe recommended on line. About a 15min walk from the city in West Hobart. Wonderfully atmospheric cosy cafe, best coffee I have had on my 5 day stay here, beautiful baked goods, wonderful service and the baked eggs for my breakfast were amazing. I am just disappointed I only found this place the morning I had to leave.

I purchased a takeaway chai latte and it was divine; obviously a "proper" homemade chai, not the overly sugared/sweet powdered mix I'm served at other establishments. Lots of lovely spices, topped off with a swirl of honey. Delicious. Can't comment on the food as I didn't have any but service was quick and efficient and the café had a warm... More

Pigeon hole cafe is a tiny place and fills up quickly, and for good reason. They source bread from their sister eponymous bakery and use fresh local ingredients to produce on-trend dishes with daily specials. The food is tasty, interesting and delicious.

Had also eaten so had a lot of chai which was stylistic served in this hip place but worn made with leaf tea was a bit weak. The flavour was good though and perhaps it was a bit my fault for drinking it too quickly

This venue was busy but we managed to get a table in this wonderfully appealing and bustling cafe. My wife selected from the special's board and was delighted with both the flavour and presentation of her selection which was the "pork and fennel meatballs". I had the egg and jamon choice and it was very enjoyable indeed. The meals were... More
