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.

“Great cafe that does lovely evening meals too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

We met friends here for queen's birthday dinner and having two kids with us booked an early table. Our waitress was great and they had a good selection of kids meals as well as interesting specials. Everyone was happy with their meals and I was pleased that kids fish bites were real pieces of fish. We got tempted by desserts, they also do great coffee.

“Lovely Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“Right by the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

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.

“Lunch with Friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

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
