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.
