Description: Welcome to Pigeon Hole Cafe, where we aim to give you a true Paddock to Plate Experience. We have our very own farm, Weston Farm, and receive produce daily with much of our menu showcasing our fresh and seasonal produce. Everything that is noted in green on our menu is grown and harvested with love by Weston Farm. Weston Farm is a small family business that focusses on sustainable, and seasonal farming practices. We further enhance the farm connection by involving our chefs in a farm rotation program, where they plant and harvest the food they showcase on the menu. We also preserve, pickle and bottle our own fruits and vegetables for you to enjoy all year round. Pigeon Hole supports a closed loop waste system, with all organic waste like cardboard, coffee grounds, egg shells, peelings and off-cuts return to the farm for composting, back to earth, where it began. All other food scraps are fed to Weston Farm's pigs "Rosie" Lola" and "Lilly". We hope you love our unique experience!

Great coffee, great atmosphere. Not enough seats as it gets PACKED OUT on the weekend, but it is a pigeon hole after all. The food is really yummy, I just wish there was more in the serves!

Pigeon Hole café is your quintessential neighbourhood café, located just outside the city centre in West Hobart near the corner of Molle St & Goulburn St - right next door to the Goulburn Street Art Gallery.

It feels like a cosy, foodies kitchen café, with a narrow L shaped dining area taking you into the clean, lamp lit nest where nourishing, beautiful food awaits you. There is also a wonderful wooden communal table at the front of the café and casual seating out front.

The menu offers a simple range of Breakfast, Soup, Panini and Small Plate items that are seasonal and elegant.

For me, Pigeon Hole is all about the art of the Panini.

Call it a panini, focaccia, toasted sandwich - whichever you prefer, Pigeon Hole take the experience to a new level of perfection. They are served with your choice of filling - inspired and seasonal - perfectly toasted, buttered and sprinkled in ground salt & pepper, on a wooden bread board. My favourite is the Organic Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil and it is indeed sublime.

The service is excellent, friendly and the café is kept in tip top shape - clean, tidy with lovely homely touches like flowers, fruit filled jars and groovy music at just the right level. They offer a range of fresh baked sweet treats daily and a selection of Chado House of Tea teas for the tasting. I have had a couple of coffees at Pigeon Hole recently and they are well presented, but lack the fresh roast, robust flavour of a truly great coffee.

Expect to see neighbours catching up, corporate types talking business, mums & bubs and all those who have discovered this delightful café. It is a nice change up from the busy streets of inner city Hobart and the kind of café every neighbourhood would love to have. If you haven’t been to Pigeon Hole yet, the Panini alone will see you become a regular!
