Mister Pigeon

7:30am - 3:30pm
269 Gilles Street Adelaide 5000

Mister Pigeon is in the Gilles Street space which once housed Fawn. The 1870s corner store retains the cosy, neighbourhood feel of its predecessor, but it's undergone a personality overhaul. The records on the wall are choice cuts from owner Callum Dinnison's own collection and a book exchange enhances the community feel of the room. Dinnison stripped his house bare to furnish Mister Pigeon – even his nanna's lamp is here.

Toasties are the stars. Past highlights have included the Taking Pear of Business – roast pork with pear, a balsamic reduction, gorgonzola and rocket – and the vegan Chick Please!, made with avocado, hummus, tomato, cucumber, carrot, alfalfa and spinach. Some old favourites from Fawn have been carried over: Dawn Patrol coffee beans are still in the grinder, and the house-made sausage roll has stayed on the menu too. There's also a range of cakes made in-house or come courtesy of local baker Claire Patton.

Eco-consciousness is another focus. Bringing your own cup will score you 20 cents off your coffee order, as does returning a takeaway drinks tray. In fact, there's no single-use plastic to be seen.
