Description: Flatwhite is located right on the beachfront 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 we love serving great food in our fabulous beachfront 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, celebration party, wedding 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.

We had a lovely dinner at the flat white restaurant. Food was great and in particular the “Beach Wellington”, absolutely delicious. The service was great and staff very welcoming.

They need to work on customer service the place was busy due to being the only beachfront cafe/restaurant. The coffee was fine but only single shots !! The waffles were so dry and cold !
We were also disappointed with going for a drink had to sit in a poxy bar area, dogs everywhere and one piddled beside me ....horrible I told the owner he didn’t care. So we left and went to the Waihi Pub and had a better experience

Overall it was fine , I was seated with my back to the view which was ok as the view was of the cutlery servery. Our waitress was concise and unobtrusive which I liked . The menu promises a lot but the meals that were served were plain cafe food at expensive prices . The tacos in particular were substandard and left us hungry . It was very busy but I found plenty of room between tables and found it easy to relax . . If I wasn’t with a local I would not go back ,

We went for lunch just before noon.
Our Table was extremely close to the one next to us.
Food was ok, but nothing to rave about.
We watched the Waitress wipe down 5 Tables with the same cloth without rinsing it, and without using any cleaner or sanitizer! Yuck....
We were only seconds from eating our last bite of Food before our plate was taken away and asked "are you finished, we need the Table"?. How rude.
Upon paying as we left, the lady at the Counter looked like she had been slapped. She was so rude. Didnt speak to us, even when we asked her a question.
Toilets were disgustingly filthy. They stank.
Not a place I would go again. Hygiene standards are low to zero at best.

We come here every year as it’s always been awesome but today’s visited was pretty poor. We sat outside (our choice) but it got really hot, we asked if we could go inside but the waitress was advised by her manager that as we didn’t have our meals it would cause confusion to the wait staff so they said they couldn’t move us. Understandable if busy, but the place was pretty empty. To top it off, we weren’t asked how we’d like our eggs with the Beach Breakfast which is a standard question don’t you think?? Advised fried only when I asked. We normally tip, get take away coffees and visit several times whilst we are here.. did neither today, and won’t be coming back. Very disappointing.
