It’s a Date!

On February 22nd, set aside some special time to spend a romantic evening with a man.  I understand Thursday night might seem like a bit of an inconvenience but please understand! This man would die just to be with you. He has your best interest at heart and wants to see you happy. He is showing up so you can have life and have it more abundantly. You can’t hide your feelings from Him because He is all-knowing and He understands that you too also want to spend some time with Him. In fact you feel desperate in your soul for Him with a true honest desire for just a moment with Him. You truly know that He loves you for you are. Even your worst didn’t change His mind. You know the romance on this date far outweighs the love of a family member, spouse, and partner in courtship. This my friends, can only seem to be a date with Jesus. 

We all need to steal away and spend some time with Him in prayer. 20 somethings! You get to spend ONE SPECIAL EVENING to focus on His love. The night is called: It’s a date! Come to this love themed night and enjoy some great food, desserts and mocktails! You get to mingle and form friendships with other 20 somethings in the room PLUS hang out at one of the coolest cafe’s in NY after closing! Don’t forget to WEAR SOMETHING RED! The color of love. We’ll all be wearing it! We’ve got an incredible Thursday night planned for exclusively for the 20 somethings! If that’s you gotta be there at CompassCoffee! You are free to invite anyone who is 20 something (both single and married welcomed)

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

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

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 4th🎉

Compass Bath Salts

 

There’s vanilla, coconut and peppermint, smells delicious but its not edible!

Compass Cafe has beautifully bottled bath salts bundled with benefits. The escaping fragrance you sniff is just enough to be sold and go home to a pampering. We often think the salts are simply for a good scent but it can:

  • Relax muscles and loosen stiff joints
  • Improve your mood
  • Detoxify the body
  • Treat sore muscles
  • Relieve Inflammation
  • Make an excellent foot soak
  • Eliminate oders
  • Deep clean skin (Removes pollution, oil and dirt. Exfoliates dead skin and dislodge blackheads)

After taking your usual shower, this is good to scrub, sit in, soak your feet or cleanse your face with warm water. I think these will make a fantastic and functional gift for a friend or family. These were created specially for you at Compass Cafe.

Compass Cafe is on a mission! Proceeds from this shop goes towards providing clean drinking water to impoverished countries and partners with the Zion Project to help end human trafficking! For more information visit www.HopeNYC.com and www.ZionProject.org  If you enjoyed these blogs/vlogs, like, share, spread the word and support the mission. Compass aims to make the world a safer one cup at a time. 

 

 

 

Three Layers of Love

Do you love this cake or can it love you?

I’ve tried this tremendous trio of hazelnut, vanilla and maple in one sweet single slice of this cake! These layers make such a creative colorful combo that will cradle your tastebuds in hugs and kisses! Sweet treat to give to your loved one or ideal for indulging! It’s made with an original homemade recipe you can taste! Normally I don’t go for sweet but you can feel the love that went into this.

The XOXO cake is found only at Compass Cafe.

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!
