Generous serves of wholesome, on-trend brunch (or lunch), surrounded by greenery and earth-toned panelling, and sunlight (when the weather is good). How could it possibly get any better? 

‘Dogs and booze,’ you say.

Well, head to Whistle & Flute, and you can have it all.

This dog-friendly, liquor-licensed café and bar is serving up all your brunch favourites. Dachshunds, pugs, Maltese … and then there’s the menu. Recharge with the Salmon Poke or Nutrition Brekkie Bowl, or renew after a night out with a Haloumi Burger with avo and sweet corn salsa, fried egg and sriracha mayo. 

Whistle & Flute’s specialty is trendy takes on the classics. Spice up your Sunday serving of eggs with Chicken and Waffles or Blue Swimmer Crab for something different (and tasty).

No Sunday brunch is complete without hair of the dog, and fortunately, Whistle & Flute facilitates this both figuratively and literally. With an Espresso martini in one hand, the other hand is free to rest on your furry friend, or perhaps a Bloody Mary. Decisions are hard. 

Lunch is served from 12 on weekdays, showcasing dishes as equally drool-inducing as the ones served up in the morning. Pan fried squid, Vietnamese Pork Meatballs or a Maple Roasted Pumpkin are all on offer. Pair a Whistle Tasting Plate or some Zaatar Pita with a selection from the fabulous list of wines, whiskies and craft beers. 

You can find Whistle & Flute at 136 Greenhill Rd, Unley SA 5061 and visit the website here.
