Proudly Local. Proudly Independent.


Flat White Kitchen serves some of the North East's best coffee and most highly acclaimed food.

Delicious coffee, exquisite cake, and an unmissable brunch, all served in a beautifully renovated 17th century townhouse in the heart of Durham City.

But don't just take our word for it..

Flat White: After Hours — A new, communal dining experience in Durham City. 

The concept of Small Plates isn’t new, but is rarely seen in the North East outside of Spanish tapas bars. We aim to lift the Small Plate concept up and celebrate a culinary collision of flavours.

After Hours:
Thur - Sat 6:30pm - 9:30pm

We wanted to create an atmosphere that didn’t require everyone to have a starter, main and dessert. Instead, we wanted to leave that up to you and Small Plates are the perfect way of opening up the experience so that everyone can be included, no matter their taste or appetite.

The menu will be rejuvenated constantly, ensuring the food is kept relevant, seasonal and exciting!
