Yellow Submarine, on Park End Street, is also number one on Trip Advisor, beating others in the top five such as The Handle Bar Cafe on St Michael's Street and Rick’s Cafe on Cowley Road.

The cafe is just one part of a charity that helps people with learning disabilities and autism get into employment.

Paul Stanton-Humphreys, the head of enterprise at the coffee shop, said he was delighted with the news.

He said: “It’s fantastic news – it's lovely to know we have won. We have a strong support base in Oxford and our regulars all know what we do which is great.

“I’ve been to the other coffee shops and they also serve great coffee but we do more here by helping to change people’s lives too.”

Some readers commented on our poll saying that big coffee chains such as Costa were their favourite spots but most stuck with independent shops such as Cagney’s in Cowley, The Farmhouse Kitchen restaurant at Millets Farm, Jericho Coffee Traders and FLTR in Bicester.
