Hole In The Wall appears to be owned by the unknown Australian oligarch who we imagine opens all the Aussie cafes in the city. It has all the markings, from bright wood and hanging plants, to colorful acai bowls and fruit smoothies. It’s a very comfortable spot for weekend brunch or a casual business lunch, when you can eat wild mushroom bruschetta with a runny egg on top, or soft scrambled eggs with a spicy sambal sauce that we bet that oligarch puts on everything. There’s a full bar, but it’s mostly used for breakfast cocktails as this place closes at 5pm everyday.
