“Hipsters unite at Pigeon Hole”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Coming to Hobart for MoFO we were excited for the great tunes, the art and Tassie's fine food. Kicking off our weekend with some great coffee and amazing baked eggs was just what we needed and this super cute hole in the wall didn't disappoint. The only downside was the slow service, but hey, there were busy!

“Best coffee and breakfast I had in hobart!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

I am so wrapped up on this place. It will now be forever my favourite cafe! The coffee is GREAT (I ordered seconds) and the meals are so flavoursome and fresh. It's good to see a cafe using the ingredients they use in such a basic way.
My company said that the portions were small - my argument was to by a second then, I think the most expensive one was $11.90..

“Great place to have coffee and breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

After spending a couple of days in Hobart, my first great cup of coffee was at Pigeon Hole. If you are like me and fabulous,strong coffee is non-negotiable in the morning, then this is the place.

I had the eggs jamon from the menu which was delightful.

The place is small and intimate and off the beaten track a bit, which makes it perfect to share breakfast with good friends!

“Delightful little place for coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Quite obviously a Hobart institution. The coffee was sublime and the young lady serving new every local by their first name. Very impressive. Just a note to let you know that they dont serve a take away breakfast until after 8 am when the kitchen officially opens. Until then its just coffee and pastry for take aways. Delicious
