Description: Flatwhite beachfront cafe is located at Waihi Beach, Western Bay of PLenty, New Zealand. We are open 7 days and 7 nights (that’s pretty much all the time) and love serving great food in our fabulous beach location. Our friendly staff and casual atmosphere will make you feel so welcome, you may not want to leave (which is fine by us). If you just want to join us for a coffee and a piece of something delicious from our cake cabinet, hold your next work function or celebration party with us or dinner for two...anything goes. We are fully licensed and have a range of tasty items on our menu for all members of the family.We look forward to seeing you soon and if you are not sure how to find us (some say it’s a bit tricky) then please check out our map on our website.

I just returned from Waihi Beach, New Zealand. The beach cottage that I stayed in for two weeks was directly behind this Cafe. I visited several times, sometimes for meals and sometimes for coffee. New Zealand has the best coffee!

If you're in the area, it's definitely worth having a meal at the Flatwhite Cafe. My most favorite dish without a doubt was the fish and chips. They have inside and outside seating where you can sit outdoors and gaze at the ocean.

The staff is also very friendly.

Great place to go for a catch up coffee. Right by the beach for the summer and a lovely warm fire inside for those cold wintery nights/mornings. Friendly staff. Menu selection is varied and as well, the cabinet food has a gluten free range. If you are a vegetarian, there is also plenty on offer.

Friends and I had a lovely lunch at this Cafe today. The service was helpful and friendly. The environment was warm and inviting, (it was raining and cold outside). The interior was warm and inviting with local artwork and interesting art pieces around the place. Even the sea looked beautiful and flat on this dull day

A group of friends and I decided to head down to the flat white for lunch, huge selection of cabinet food, an extensive menu with everything from Eggs Benedict, to Steak Sammies, Salads, Burgers, and Pizzas - one of our group was vegetarian so she was very happy with the selection on offer, and the gluten free range of cakes and slices were great! The wine list had something to suit everyone and after a very yummy lunch that we all felt was great value for money we headed off for a walk on the beach - which we could see from the deck. Great experience - we will be back!

We were 7 hungry kids and adults and came in on a holidays evening - without a reservation. The staff was so helpful to organize us a table, the service was very efficient (not always the case in NZ if you measure with non-NZ-standards ;-) ), very friendly. They followed up, noticed if we needed something even though the house was completely full.

We ate pizzas (the selection could be bigger and a bit more "italian") and salads. I had a wonderful quinoa salmon salad which was perfectly seasoned and not drowned in salad sauce.
