Perfect college breakfast or lunch opportunity to connect with your kids! Although if I lived in CVille, I would eat here at least once a week. Small and intimate and yet they have good service and unique options on the menu. Great coffee!

Had a great eggs benedict and a cinnamon roll. The benedict was served on a biscuit which was really light - made for one of the best benedicts i have ever eaten. Highly recommend this place.

Been here a more than a few times with friends and family. I am willing to brave a line off their outdoor patio as well as a hoard of UVA students as The Pigeon Hole is easily the best breakfast place in Charlottesville. Although I haven't had to wait too long, the kitchen is apparently tiny- so don’t come if... More

This place is definitely a neighborhood gem! I went for an early morning brunch while in town one Sunday and had a very pleasant experience. Our waitress was so friendly and bubbly and the food was great. I ordered the french toast (at our waitresses recommendation) and it was delicious! It was seriously some of the best french toast I've... More

This place is under new management. My companion was from the north and loves shrimp and grits. He thought it was some of the best he'd ever eaten. It is very rare to find actual "home fries" in the south. They were great hand cut seasoned with fresh herbs. The service was good. The people actually cared if you were... More

This is a cute little place with tons of college kids, even in the summer, so there's a fun young vibe. Because it's small, we expected a wait. The sign out front said that it was under new ownership. Food was so-so and took FOREVER! We were seated near the kitchen and my husband spotted what appeared to be his... More

What a great, cute little hole in the wall for breakfast! It's not gourmet food with 5-star service, but I would go back in a heartbeat. The pancakes are delicious, and the menu is so varied it's hard to choose what to get. Perfect for a lazy Saturday morning breakfast or brunch.

We found this place while walking around and decided to stop in for breakfast. We got there right when it opened and the lady that seated us wasn't very nice but our waitress was really nice and courteous. We got the crab cake brunch, egg sandwich and French toast with grits. The biscuits are frozen pillsbury ones so they are... More

First when I got there, me and all of my friends orders where wrong, as well as the table next to mine. When the table next to mine told them all of their orders where wrong, the lady denied it and got angry. When we told them to fix our orders, they got it wrong again and where rude about... More

The greeter is extremely rude to everyone. I called at 11.15 and asked for a table at noon. They said they don't do reservations but they would write down our name on the waiting list, and that we have to wait till 12.45. I showed up at 12.30, they said "the table is ready but we can't seat you till... More
