The couple, who opened Espresso Lounge in 2011, have plans to expand their business.

Clare said: "We have been doing this for 10 years and we really care about what we do and it is nice for that to be recognised.

"We really appreciate the good reviews and to be in the top 20 is great, our hard work is paying off!

"We are relocating to a bigger site and will also keep this one, we will have a bigger shop and a roastery, so we will be able to roast and process the coffee on-site."

“Our research has looked at the highest rated cafes across the country and found some of the better known, and lesser known, joints to grab a favourite drink and a bite to eat.”
