The most atmospheric, inventive and welcoming coffee shop you can find in Durham. They take care in everything they do - from their fresh and unique salads, house baked cakes to their (most important of all) coffees (& the way they should be!). It's a smaller coffee shop and busy but worth the wait for a table. Even on chilly... More

Go to flat white, simple as that. Food is excellent, coffee deliciously smooth, atmosphere is friendly. If it's full wait for a table, it's worth it!

Popped in for a quick snack. Had the apple juice basil and ginger drink and the mozzarella croissant absolutely delicious. Beautifully presented in a cosy atmosphere. Really impressed. Best in Durham without a doubt.

We visit family in Durham several times a year and rarely do so without a visit to Flat White. It's a great little place with top coffee and top staff.

Flat White is Durham's most attractive cafe - but the good experience doesn't stop there. A wide ranging drinks menu and delicious cakes will keep any cafe lover coming back for more. The service is top notch too!

Lovely little cafe in Durham. The hot chocolate, with whipped cream and marshmallows and the rocky road cake is delicious! Always very busy and often it's very hard to find a seat as they're all taken! Great food, good atmosphere and it has a lovely interior! Would definitely recommend it! It is a favourite amongst students and tutors!

A pleasant visit to a lovely cafe in the heart of Durham. Although small, the staff moved tables for us so that we could park our pram. We ordered a couple of sandwiches, the breads and ingredients were very high quality and the choice was good. We had a couple of chicken pesto sandwich which were fresh and delicious :)))... More

Popped in for a sandwich after reading all the good reviews and we weren't disappointed. Great food and lovely staff. They don't take cards, so make sure you go with cash.
