Flatplanet

A popular Soho haunt specialising in topped flatbreads. It's just off Carnaby Street, so does well with wandering shoppers and tourists, as well as local workers that keep the weekday lunchtimes busy.

The breads themselves are made with organic English spelt, and are topped with options such as 'Moroccan' (layers of houmous, labneh, olives, tomatoes, basil and rose harissa) or 'buffalo soldier' (mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, basil and parmesan pesto crumbs, garlic butter and rocket. 

Starters such as falafel, olives, garlic mushrooms and chorizo slices in red wine and tomato sauce feature alongside simple salads. Desserts include a gluten-free brownie or a gluten-free raspberry crumble. And to drink? House red, white and rosé by the bottle and glass, a couple of lagers plus smoothies, fruity matcha teas and a range of coffee.

Flatplanet: what a find. Not only the best name in London, but some of the best flatbreads too. They tempted us in with delicious free samples, and we sat down having been reassured that, yes, they did serve wine. The wine was a highlight in fact - a very palatable rosé at just £17 a bottle. The outdoor seating is limited but lovely on a sunny day, the only downside being that it is on the pavement, so attracts both street hawkers and traffic noise. This is easy to overlook, however, when the food is this tasty. One flatbread and dessert between the two of us was more than enough, and both our olive laden main course and sticky, delicious dessert were wonderful. A Soho winner.

Love this place!  Freelancers' paradise given good wifi and spaces to hang out  - the downstairs is really nice and a bit of a surprise, I even liked the smell & style of the ladies!  Cheap tasty eats, good coffee, also serves beer & wine, open late, and friendly staff. I recommend the diablo flat bread for the love of harissa.

I was really impressed with this place!

Added it to my list of places to come when I saw it on Timeout - good quality ingredients, tasty and value for money at £6 but what I hadn't realised that was for take out!
The cheapest 'eat in' flat bread is actually £7 and the ones with toppings I'd normally go for were £8.50.
This place serves coffee, cake (didn't try any) and flat breads served like pizzas with different toppings and then put through the grill. Simple and a bit pricey at £8 but both me and my bf were so impressed with the flavours. 
We got a flat bread each and were satisfied when we left (we both had a cookie at the cinema but wasn't essential!). I went for the Moroccan chicken which had houmous, sour cream, tonnes of chicken, mint and basil (really recommend) and bf went for the chorizo one which has a tomato base (one of the best I've had), chorizo, rocket and parmesan shavings. There were lots of other tasty sounding toppings so I'd definitely go back and overall walked away impressed!

Nice place a stones throw from Oxford Circus that doesn't feel too busy, and the food is nice (the Moroccan flat bread is great!). The service wasn't great though - it took ages to order and then they tried to rush us out before we were done.

To my previous comment I forgot to adjust the ratings which is was it is as the food was nice but the customer service was atrocious.

Service is terrible, even with very good intentions. But food is very good, decor is beautiful downstairs, and prices very low. With low price service can be terrible, so decor and food make Flatplanet a fantastic place.

I love the flat planet!! i love the flats and the coffee. I would like to see soups there too. Amazing feel.

They've sorted their offering out hugely since last year when I think TO must have reviewed it, as most of the toppings are hot, plus the flatbread base is amazing. Really like the dolce latte cheese, pepper, mushroom and basil one. Very good place for lunch.
