Happy 5th of July!

The party isn’t over! The celebration of freedom still continues with patriotic colors and a cake to cut. The Freedom Cake is back at Compass! Fans had happily reunited with the cake this weekend. Just like last year, it’s going fast! Many are in love with the cake because of it’s eye-catching trio of colors on the surface and in the slices. WE are also fond of the delicious fresh homemade vanilla taste. You may find yourself back at the job today but you can continue celebrating with a satisfying slice! It tastes like a celebration any day after July 4thūüéČ

Do you like Reggae? 

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 was some dancing, relaxation, and great conversation! People sipped fresh cold fruit juices and great-tasting frappes out in front of Compass’ seating area. There were delicious desserts from Jodi Bakes and a taste of Jamacia. Enjoy endless summer nights at Compass every Friday this summer at 7pm!

After Service Snack

The oatmeal cream pie tonight was delish & FREE! It was crunchy creamy & compact! Not to mention the rich great-tasting center that’s totally Jodi Bakes! I wish I can have it for breakfast tomorrow morning! After today’s life-changing Hope-Day service, it certainly made the perfect after-service snack!

PB&J Yay or Nay?

An American classic turned into a cupcake!  It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time is one the newest at Compass Cafe! Swirled peanut butter frosting topped with peanut butter morsels all sitting on top of a sponge cake that mimics the taste of classic white sliced bread. In the center is a filling I assume you already know! Peanut butter’s sweet companion; jelly. You can taste the popular lunch sandwich in this cupcake while still delighting in a dessert. It’s baffling yet brilliant!  It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time  is another Jodi Bakes creation.

Happy Birthday Compass

Compass Coffee had just celebrated it’s first birthday! The streets were lined with excited¬†party guests ready for the celebration. I could tell it was going to be huge! All of the party guests received gifts for this¬†birthday! Free coffee, birthday buttons, T-shirts and special elegant cookies made specifically for the occasion by House of Fray!

There were also things that added to excitement such as a live DJ, balloons, my raffle ticket # possibly being called, seeing what the new Jodi Bakes thanksgiving dessert tray looks like and being one of the first 50 people on line to get a discount card.

As we finally went in, each person received their discount card and free T-shirt then started ordering. I saw fresh desserts, shelves filled with candy, and a very happy welcoming staff that lined up to greet everyone at the door. Friends were sitting down enjoying conversations in and out of the cafe as the music played. A few of them were even dancing. The orders varied from coffee to croissants, to tea, to eclairs, to soup, to sandwiches and waffles. Everything everyone had looked absolutely appetizing!

We didn’t keep the fun all to ourselves. Those who¬†walked or¬†drove¬†by got invited somehow by someone. The baristas¬†served coffee and pumpkin bars to pedestrians waiting at the bus stop and firefighters at the station. It was an amazing and memorable birthday.

Watch this short video about this fun day!

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!
