Sunset, breeze and reggae right on Rockaway Blvd! Just a few photos of what endless summer nights look like on Fridays evenings at Compass! This past Friday was Reggae night!

There were delicious desserts from Jodi Bakes and a taste of Jamacia. Enjoy endless summer nights at Compass every Friday this summer at 7pm!

The Caribbean Sea Cake

If there is any location thats most desirable on this planet it would be the Caribbean. You’ve seen the commercials, the magazines, your friend’s vacation photos on social media! It’s the happy place and ideal destination for many including myself! The homey creamy vanilla taste of the Caribbean Sea Cake makes you feel like you’re there. Your tastebuds travel straight to paradise when you enjoy a slice. It’s moist, rich in flavor and have layers of fun tropical colors. The first cake was sold out within two hours! My vlog was filmed just an hour after it was made and the cake was halfway finished! I’m not usually a fan of plain or vanilla cakes but I love the richness in flavor and the blissful not overpowering sweetness in the caribbean sea cake. If you are in the New York area, come  grab yourself a slice this week!


Freedom Cake

Have you ever had freedom cake? I just did! With it’s great flavor and unique patriotic colors its like fireworks to me! Actually not just me but so many others! My friend Michelle stated ” It’s like Heaven in my mouth!” Travis said “Theres a sweet side to Independence day!” By the way theres a Freedom Concert happening on July 3rd! Check it out & Get your tickets at Compass Cafe’! Tickets enter you into a raffle for a chance to win a 4 wheeler!









The Almond Dream Cake

A cake so detailed, rosy and elegant! It’s like biting into a light sweet white vanilla cloud and it tastes like almond in cake form. It’s not so super sugary but it’s kissed with sweetness. A cake like no other in the city, you gotta come try the almond dream cake at Compass Cafe Cup of Hope!

Remember, every delicious dessert purchased will help provide clean drinking water to different countries in need.

My new ring! 

Hours after publishing todays vlog about The 5 ways to be Healthy at Compass Cafe, my husband & I left  HopeNYC after a major street evangelism event Home Stretch . I bearly got anything to eat all day so we decided to go out somewhere good like our favorite Thai food resturaunt. I got in the car & found a blue box on my seat. It was one of Compass Cafe’s “Tiffany blue gift boxes” I thought putting it on the seat was part of the surprise but he intended to hide it before I got in. I agreed to not open the box until we were at the resturaunt…relaxed & ready at the right moment. We both ordered our soba noodle soups & I opened it after! It was just what I wanted! That ring I was eyeing for 3 days in the Cafe’! They started to sell jewelry this week & that ring really caught my attention! I love bizarre unique jewelry like that. Jewelry like a coffee on a saucer ring, piano key earrings, rotating hourglass necklace, 3 piece glasses nose & mustache ring set, camera necklaces, bead bracelets with an anchor charm ‚öďÔłŹ & so much more! 

Compass Cafe has Lemonade pitcher pendants, emoji earrings, glass of lemonade earrings, coffee cup bracelet charms much more new stuff! I love my new gift and I couldn’t get over looking at it. I really enjoyed it & the rest of time in the resturaunt with him.
