Situated in Linden, on the corner of 7th Street and 4th Avenue, The Whippet strives to become “South Africa’s first neighborhood inspired coffee shop” by supporting young South African designers; on sale you can find beautiful locally designed products.
The Whippet is one eatery where the tea may be more enticing than the coffee. The iced-tea is brewed in the café and comes in a variety of surprising flavours. If you are up for breakfast with a bit of a twist try ‘The Whippet Delight’, a dish centering on poached eggs dipped in tempura batter and fried. Although The Whippet is primarily focused on breakfast and lunch it is especially open late on Fridays for evening drinks, tapas and burgers.
