We have dreams about opening up a cafe like Camberwell’s The Pigeon Hole. We’d bake, and we’d read a lot of Paulo Coelho novels between serving customers coffee, saying things like ‘everything happens for a reason’ whilst pressing orange juice. This place is about as cute as a cafe can be without being run by an army of croissant making kittens and is perfect for catching up over excellent cakes, reading one of the cafe’s books over baked eggs, or getting a little work done with coffee. It’s a small spot with limited seating, but there’s also a couple of picnic tables out front.
