Cafe Opening: Whiplash, Melbourne

Jordan Faulkner is co-owner of Whiplash cafe, a former milk bar in an under-serviced pocket of Hawthorn. Jordan has gone into partnership with a number of current and recently retired Collingwood AFL players in this venture including Jordan Roughead, Nathan Murphy, Callum Brown and Brody Mihocek.

After over a year of renovations and delays with permits the doors are now open to Whiplash and the locals are enjoying the New York-style deli concept with a stripped back menu that focuses on quality sandwiches and bagels.

The coffee selection is anchored by Veneziano's Elevate blend the perfect all-rounder for milk based drinks. Batch brew coffee features a rotating selection of microlots.
