Strangers Coffee House in Pottergate is the only place in East Anglia to be named in the top 50 coffee shop list.

The coffee available at the cafe is roasted at their nearby Dove Street unit and they also sell a range of sweet treats, soups and pastries.

The finalists were selected by Big 7 Travel, which produces travel, food and hotel content from across seven continents, and the top 50 were chosen through a poll across its 1.5 million community on social media and a panel of coffee experts.

Online reviews, previous media coverage and notable blogs were also included in the overall rating.
