Tucked away only a stone’s throw from the Adelaide CBD, on a stretch of Greenhill street which was previously bereft of high quality cafes, stands one other gem from hospitality superheros Josh Baker, Stewart Wesson and Jamie Botten. Whistle and Flute (cockney rhyming slang for a go well with) presents a masterclass in culinary excellence and artistic café design. Together with architect Matiya Marovich of San’s Arc Studio, the group have reworked an in any other case generic workplace lobby into a lovely city backyard patio that includes Five Senses Coffee.
Entering via the massive sliding door from the sidewalk is harking back to discovering Narnia contained in the wardrobe. Customers are greeted by cascading greenery flowing down the strong timber and concrete buildings. Whistle and Flute hums with the sound of a bustling crowd of workplace staff, mums, canine walkers and college students all basking within the ambiance of a nicely-thought-out playlist (60’s soul and R&B as I write 😊). As you head throughout the ground to the bar, you’ll be greeted, seated and watered earlier than you’ll be able to say ‘Darling Daughter’.
For their house mix, Whistle and Flute use Dark Horse. Rotating restricted version singles are served by means of their customized three group MVP Hydra in addition to via their Marco SP9 brewing system which permits them to include their filter coffee program seamlessly into their workflow. The brew bar is positioned strategically in the midst of a wrap-round concrete counter, with loads of area to perch, order a filter coffee and participate within the cheerful banter whereas watching the grasp baristas at work.
Do your self a favour, seize your calendar and make a date to go to this lovely oasis. Or subsequent time you end up within the neighborhood of Greenhill Road in Unley, take a break and head on into the Whistle and Flute to expertise one among Adelaide’s best cafes.
