Whippet Melville

Melville was proclaimed a suburb in 1896, making it one of the oldest suburbs in Joburg. This is our second Whippet store and is housed in the old art deco hotel formerly known as the Melville Mansions. The facades and art deco elements of this building have remained the same since 1937.

This is also our first harvest store and Joburg’s first farm to table restaurant. On our rooftop farm we grow and harvest the freshest wild rocket, baby gem lettuce, cherry tomatoes and baby spinach.
