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 7 years we still hold true the values that have inspired us from day one. We continue to believe in:
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 Whippet baristas.
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.
Our passion for people
Our business is nothing without our people. We pay our staff higher salaries and help them move closer to work to improve the of quality their lives. We teach all our staff to cook and encourage them to lead a more nutricious and balanced lifestyle. We say it again – we are nothing without our people, they are the reason why our business succeeds.
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 cannot wait to welcome you back home.
