After this is all over, be on the lookout for HopeNYC’s Christmas Parade on Rockaway Blvd! This will be on Sunday December 3rd at 5pm! A great way to kick off your Christmas celebration!

What’s the Soup of Day?

New Yorkers are warming up as temperatures are dropping! Ridding their closets of rompers and casting aside cold shoulder tops to make room for tunics and snug sweaters!

 

Coffee, hot chocolate and teas are ideal ways to warm up this season! Compass Cafe’ has all those things including the #1 solution: SOUP!

Soups at Compass are ultra-delicious, hearty, made from scratch and served in adorable crock bowls on a knitted coaster (If you plan to stay)

Sadly, the soups are only here for a limited time but what’s exciting is that there is a different one every day served with bread on the side made from scratch by Jodi Bakes! One day it can be loaded baked potato soup served with buttermilk bread or a chicken taco soup with cornbread. There’s other exiting soups like pinto beans with smoke turkey, pasta fagoili, ham and potato chowder and more! If you have $5 in your pocket and want to warm up quickly with something satisfying and balanced, all you have you to do is come into Compass to find out: What’s the soup of the day?  

Loaded baked Potato Soup topped with scrumptious scallions and bacon bits served with a slice of buttermilk bread made from scratch by Jodi Bakes.
Chicken taco soup garnished with cilantro, crispy tortillas chips and cheese! This tasty soup is loaded with good veggies like beans and corn and it is served with a slice of fresh baked cornbread made from scratch by Jodi Bakes.

 

Hazel just brought out fresh-baked buttermilk bread!

 

There’s a new soup of the day every day! These are some of the best tasting soups you will ever find in NYC! Again made from scratch with great care so you can be nourished on the go! 

Compass Cafe is located on 142-82 Rockaway Blvd, Jamaica NY 11436

Fall In

When autumn first sets in, you begin to feel a sense of empowerment like it’s time to GET READY! We have entered fall about a month ago and it’s always been a crucial time in our year: It’s time to go back to school, get back to work from vacation, get serious again about our New Year’s resolutions, the time to kick into high gear and prepare for big holiday rushes and events… Get back to what is important.

More than just a beautiful service in an autumn scene, FALL IN is about the timing of God. FALL IN LINE with the Holy Spirit. CONQUER the things you face! LISTEN AND OBEY the voice of God. Get out there so you can REAP THE HARVEST and BUILD AN ARK! Don’t just say a quick prayer, GET INTENSE with your worship! FIND THE RHYTHM and GET IN STEP with the way The Spirit of God is moving at this time NOW

The names in bold are significant commands and most are the names of past ministry events at HopeNYC. Yesterday, HopeNYC had FALL IN at Baisely Pond Park! See the pics below to get a glimpse of the love and the joy of the Hope family!

Don’t Bring Gifts To This Birthday Party!

This weekend, you are invited to one of the greatest birthday celebrations in New York! This Sunday is not going to be ordinary. Compass Coffee turns two years old and this birthday has been incredibly and carefully planned.

Compass is a Missions coffee shop that was created to help people in other countries get clean drinking water and rescue girls out of human trafficking through its partnership with The Zion project!

GUESS WHAT?

We will hear from the actual founder of the Zion Project: Pastor Deven Wallace. We will see her live and she will be preaching THIS Sunday at 10:30am at HopeNYC. Right after service, Compass will actually be giving you presents 🎁 as we celebrate this birthday! There will ALSO be special surprises for people who purchase a cup of coffee, dessert or item that day!

The fact that Pastor Deven will be at HopeNYC on Compass’ Birthday is not a coincidence or luck but this was indeed a divine appointment set up by God. In fact, Compass is a divine idea founded to help others and it will continue it’s mission even stronger as it steps into it’s second year! Read more about the MISSION here

The Chowder Champion

Whats your favorite chowder? I discovered mine today!

69b25f8a0168558235e078b1a6f25a76

I’m estatic about this fall season. The breeze, silent streets, pumpkin spice, and the new warm soups and chowders at Compass cafe! Jodi Bakes has made phenomenal desserts but her soups has already made a huge impression!

Many of the Compass customers, baristas, HopeNYC attendees including myself all enjoy the soups and have only good things to say. Not only are we satisfied, we are eager to know what tomorrow’s soup of the day will be.

Today’s was  ham and potato chowder. It was so good that I ran away refusing to give a gulp of this chowder to my husband that kindly asked to try it. It was a beautiful thick white creamy chowder with vibrant specks of color from the minced vegetables inside. There were also generous chunks of potato and ham. It was a nice heavy filling satisfying soup. The taste was incredible and packed with flavor. I say come to Compass Cafe for their delicious well-known coffee but grabbing a soup this fall is a must! If you choose to stay, they will serve it you in an adorable burgandy soup crock with a handle.

Pumpkin Spice up your Waffle!

I just tried Compass Cafe’s NEWEST pumpkin swirl waffle! You can enjoy this for breakfast or anytime of the day! It’s loaded with pumpkin flavor and feels just like fall! It’s not sweet at all but you can achieve your desired sweetness by adding the amount of syrup or whipped cream that pleases you.

 

This will be nice in the morning with a pumpkin spice latte on the side.

Because of the calm atmosphere, pumpkin spice scent and appearance of the Compass cafe’ you will feel that restful rustic autumn atmosphere. You can have family time here where you can sit down share a meal and some sweets with loved ones. You can have meetings, tutor a child, complete homework of any kind, plug in your laptop …the list goes on!

These Macaroons taste like fall

I had a good afternoon at Compass Cafe with my friend Judith. We both enjoyed sipping some rich hot chocolate while biting into the new fresh baked macaroons at Compass Cafe.

The maple macaroon had a good crunch and really tasted like pure rich maple syrup as if I were biting into a drenched pancake for breakfast.

The chocolate macaroon was finished in 2 short crunchy satisfying bites. It had such an indulgent taste on the sweet delicate outer cookie then splendid genuine chocolate flavor in the filling.

Today I enjoyed these macaroons with a friend but there are others ways for these macaroons to be enjoyed. Compass provides a fancy light blue slide out box that holds six macaroons. This pretty petite french dessert can be used a gift for your friends. A gesture of love for a sweetheart or family member. An appreciative present for parents. A nice surprise for your professor  or co worker.

The best part is, the macaroons are one of the healthiest lightest desserts here and completely guilt free. Made with love and taste like fall.
