Flat White never fails to please, the staff are the friendliest and the food is just as good. Sandwiches are rustic and give a great home feeling.

Durham is full of cafes and restaurants that will sling any old crap and take your money for it. Flat White is run by people who care about good coffee and good food, and it shows on every single visit. The coffee - even the decaf! - is fantastic.

Absolutely love this place down a little alley. It is quirky and charming. The sandwiches are original and delicious, there is an amazing range of teas. Love the furniture and the outdoor seating. The staff are friendly & pleasant. It is a unique place, in the midst of several chain coffee shops in Durham. Definitely worth a visit.
