“Shotbox” is a special coffee and cupcake component that is new this year. Serving the gallery and street it promises to be the best thing since sliced cake! Featuring Crumb’s “cups of cake” and Counter Culture Coffee’s it promises to be the best (if only) little coffee takeout in downtown Raleigh.

David Menestres is calling their little creations ‘cups of cake’ because they will be way beyond cupcakes you have seen in other shops. With your sweet tooth taken care of Designbox has sought out Counter Culture to provide the best in espresso and single origin coffees to wash it down.

All drinks will be one size fits all, based on traditional sizes and proportions with all drip coffee made to order on a manual brew rail. Look for special ‘origin’ drinking chocolate from Paul Mosca of Chocolate Seed fame. There will be lots of one of a kind eats this year. You wont want to miss our Shotbox exclusive The Doughnut Muffin. Its hotter than ‘hot now’!
