Free cake for customers

A LOCAL coffee shop is offering free cake for a week as it celebrates its first birthday.

Coffee Box, located at the Hastings Centre on The Ridge, opposite the Conquest Hospital, opened last July and has been going from strength-to-strength ever since. Laura Grove, Coffee Box manager, said: “We’ve had a fantastic first year so we wanted to thank our customers by giving away free birthday cupcakes to celebrate our first birthday! We aim to run Coffee Box as a social enterprise, meaning that we invest the profits for the good of the local community.” Coffee Box boasts a large outdoor patio with stunning views and a Hastings-themed children’s play are and serves a range of cakes, freshly made sandwiches, soups, milkshakes, smoothies, and Illy coffee. From Monday, June 30, to Friday, July 4, inclusive, customers will receive a free birthday cupcake with their order (while stocks last). For more information visit
