Pigeon Hole is as much a social scene as a café. You go there expecting that you will know many of the customers - and that is partly because the place is always crowded with regulars who return again and again for good coffee and interesting food.
It is quite small with less than 20 seats inside and a few more on the footpath outside. It sits on the fringe of the city in a residential area where people walk to work, stopping in here for their first fix of coffee for the day.
Saturday morning is a real buzz with regulars and visitors claiming tables here from early in the morning. The tables turn over regularly so there is rarely a long wait.
Dishes for the day are chalked on a blackboard on the wall. There are usually three or four breakfast dishes and a similar number of lunch offerings.
The menu has changed recently to reflect more closely the beautiful produce available from the farm of the new owners Richard and Belinda Weston.
