pigeon hole - hobart
My first port of call in Hobart was the highly recommended Pigeon Hole. A gorgeous little bakery with a small but seasonal menu. There is only one vegetarian dish made vegan (if you omit the parmesan cheese) the breakfast beans. As mentioned before I'm now trying to do wheat free as much as possible so I had these beans sans bread which I was a bit sad over, thinking oh.. I'm just going to have a sad little pot of beans for breakfast. One mouthful in and I was stunned, the best beans I've ever had. Rich, full bodied, smokey I could taste cinnamon in them but couldn't place the other flavours that made it so dense. Absolutely spectacular. Excellent coffee, friendly staff and I thought it was sweet they didn't charge me for my coffee (considering I didn't have toast). A great start to Hobart!
