My wife and I found this great little cafe for breakfast one morning. With my eyes bigger than my stomach I ordered almost everything on the menu. The flavours and presentation of this delightful menu were fantastic. Great coffee, friendly staff. What more could you ask for. Thank you

If you're looking for excellent coffee then Pigeonhole offers it!! I've been to a few places in battery point and in town but this is the best!! I really enjoyed the sardines with sourdough and the side off baked eggs were an excellent addition. Can't wait to come again when I fly back into town. And looking forward to trying... More

Our first food stop in Hobart was Pigeon Hole Cafe. Obviously a favourite with tourists and locals alike, the small space was heaving when we arrived. The amazingly friendly staff were fantastic and we appreciated them fitting us onto a share table in the back area. We had baked eggs and the Croque Monsieur washed down with a couple of... More

This a very lovely cafe with fantastic coffee and very friendly staff. It is fairly small - so is a bit packed. The menu is limited but what they do provide is just fantastic. Do not expect to find the standard bacon and eggs here - this is more jamon kind of place.

Pigeon Whole Bakers is a bakery in the heart of Hobart specialising in organic flour products - breads, buns and the like. It is not a cafe or restaurant. We purchased 6 hot cross buns before asking the price - OVER $14.00. What? Are there gold nuggets inside? I was floored by the cost but my daughter insisted on paying.... More

Homely style cafe serves up great coffee, the milk based supersede the blacks here. Food is creative especially for such a small space! I had the poached fruit crumble and the croque monsoir and both were exceptional! Highly reccomend this cafe, a must try when in Hobart!

This quaint little place in West Hobart does an outstanding lunch. Try the toasted beef piadina. Friendly and helpful service.

This cafe can't cope with a full house. We arrived at 12.30 and waited half an hour for a bowl of soup. When it didn't come we left and went elsewhere. More staff required.

My partner and I stopped for breakfast. I had delicious homemade baked beans on some kind of chunky bread with grated cheese (I neglected to write down the fancy name for this) and he had creamed rice with marinated strawberries and little flecks of basil through it. The basil blew his mind- he still raves about it. I believe a... More
