WE shared the news that a new cafe has thanked the community for its 'absolutely brilliant' support since opening. 

The Coffee Lounge on Brampton's Townfoot Industrial Estate was officially opened by mother-and-daughter duo Emma and Elizabeth Holt at the beginning of November. 

The cafe, which also offers takeaway services, invites locals to enjoy home-cooked meals, freshly baked sweet treats, dark chocolate orange peel and cherry coffee blend, and sample their signature Lamb and vegetable Brampton Pasty.

Here's how readers reacted.

Bud Smith said: "Well done both, wishing you both every success for the future," and Nigel Thompson said: "Fabulous, so pleased for you all, you just can’t beat that traditional food and warm hospitality."

Fiona McCallum said: "Wishing you both every success for the future."

Shona Johnston said: "Excellent quiche and cakes," while Sheena Frizell said it is a 'lovely cafe'.

Noreen McCracken said: "Must visit soon, sounds and looks lovely," and Sandra Scott said 'it looks delicious'.

Jacqueline Armstrong said: "Well done all your hard work has paid off, great write-up of the coffee shop, well done to both of you."

One web user said: "Those meringues look delicious."

For Emma, who also owns The Lotus Rooms above the cafe, opening the lounge and eatery alongside her mum has been a lifelong dream which has been realised following months of work.
