    Hi there Whippet Team, I had the awesome pleasure of visiting your beautiful shop on Saturday morning. Congratulations on a very fresh, funky look and great brand that you have created. The food was just as delicious as the look of your shop. I really like the idea that you have created with having certain items on sale within the shop. I have something that is a little different that I would like to offer to be sold in your shop. Can you please send me your e-mail address so that I may provide you with the details.

  12. Cathleen says:

    Have looked for your shop a number of times, where on earth are you hiding? have stood at the intersection of 7th street and 4th avenue, and can never find you. I land up going to The Argentinean by default. What building are you in?

    1. Hey Cathleen – so sorry you miss us every time! we are literally across the street from The Argentinean – you will see our wooden tables and white and grey exterior.

  13. Juanita says:

    Do you guys make custom size tables? My office is looking for a funky wood finish table in our new “pause” room and I would like to suggest you guys, what price would we be looking at, it would probably be a 10-12 seater table…kitchen counter height…

  14. Shani says:

    We have an A-grade residential building in the CBD (Newtown). On the ground floor of this up-market and trendy building, we are bringing in a restaurant and are looking for a coffee shop to compliment the restaurant.

    Would you be interested in creating an establishment in this area?

  17. Joy says:

    hi, I am interested in coming to your lovely place. may I ask, do you do breakfast? I see people ordering tables and now I am confused? thanks

    1. Hi – yes we most certainly do do breakfast. The selling of tables is because we sell all our furniture every 3 months!

      Hope to see you soon – we are on the Cnr of 7th str and 4th avenue Linden.
