“There are two Flat Whites in Durham, both are delightful coffee houses offering artisan roasts, light lunches and homemade cakes in a cozy rustic setting. Be aware that the Flat White Kitchen can have large queues around lunch times, but you can always sneak around the corner to the lesser known little sister, Flat White Cafe. ”
