Flat white is a bit of a Durham institution and there is a perpetual line of well-off students and their parents waiting in line outside for a table (it doesn't take bookings). To be fair, they turn things around fairly quickly so you are unlikely...More

We went here just for a cup of tea which was very nice and beautifully presented. Some people were eating and the food looked amazing. When we left there was a queue so it is obviously extremely popular.

Located on Saddler Street, just seconds away from Durham Cathedral, is Flat White Durham's latest venture: Flat White Kitchen. The five-story 16th century property has been restored back to its original splendour and is a meld of stripped-wood, copper pipes and bare brick alongside opulent French mirrors and fresh flowers. The coffee offering showcases the owners' talents, who opened their first cafe after working alongside some of Australia's greatest roasters. Five years on, the two are still regulars on the coffee machine, passing on their talents to only a select few who make the cut. The food offering from Flat White Kitchen is equally as perfected as the coffee. A strong, kitchen team has been hand selected from the finest northern restaurants to ensure that the menu is as strong as the reputation.
