Scott Schroeder and Pat O’Malley quietly opened their Hungry Pigeon for dinner service last week. And now they’re officially open as an all-day eatery.

The menu starts out with a lengthy coffee service with offerings that go far beyond latte and mocha. A savory breakfast menu is served weekdays with O’Malley’s specialty, a selection of pastries. On weekends the breakfast and pastry options expand to include a short rib hash, French toast and a bread basket. Lunchtime offers salads, sandwiches, burgers and a selection of vegan sides. At dinner, Hungry Pigeon’s menu ranges from the small pan roasted pigeon to the large one pound pot roast.

Scott Schroeder Opening Hungry Pigeon in Queen Village

In a project that has managed to stay rather quiet since being presented at a neighborhood meeting last year, the cat (or bird) is finally out of the bag. Hungry Pigeon is a European-style cafe coming to 743 S 4th Street, on Fabric Row in Queen Village. South Philadelphia Taproom/American Sardine Bar chef Scott Schroeder is behind the project with his longtime friend Patrick O’Malley. O’Malley comes back to Philadelphia from New York’s Balthazar Bakery. Schroeder and O’Malley’s friendship goes back to when the both of them worked at ¡Pasion! with chef Guillermo Pernot. Despite moving to New York, the two would occasionally do collaboration dinners at SPTR, including one feast I was lucky enough to be at with along with chefs Nick Macri and Gene Giuffi.

Hungry Pigeon will be a coffee shop by morning, a lunch spot in the afternoon, and at night, the lights will dim for dinner with beer, wine and cocktails.
