About Us

We opened our Linden store in 2012, with the vision of creating a neighbourhood-inspired coffee shop. Back then and still now, we pay homage to the peach farming history of this amazing suburb. From the beginning, The Whippet set out to be a neighbourhood destination, a connection point with your neighbhourhood and your story.

We want you to call it “my store” because that is exactly what it is….your store .

The Whippet today

Fast-forward 9 years we still hold true the values that have inspired us from day one. We continue to believe in:

Coffee excellence

Coffee is a sit down moment, an intimate time together with those you love. We source only the best beans, roasted by an all-female roasting team and then blended and made with passion and love by competition-ready baristas.

Food innovation

Suzanne, one of the owners, is passionate about creating dishes that evoke a feeling of nostalgia. She creates a food and drinks experience that speaks to warmth and belonging. We call is simple, good feel food.

Our passion for people

Our business is nothing without our people. We say it again – we are nothing without our people, they are the reason why our business succeeds. If they are happy we believe you will be happy.

Our passion for design and architecture

We always strive to create spaces that inspire your next great idea. Our shop designs are inspired by Linden and its history and by the stories of those who call it home. Our space evolves with the suburb and as it creates new stories we create new ones with it.

The Whippet is your second home – we can not wait to welcome you back.
