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

What You Need To Know About The Revival Before It Ends Tonight!

I know that you haven’t heard much from me lately…The Tent Revival was just that good!

The perfectly cool evening breeze comforts you after all the energy released during praise and worship. Houses around the neighborhood can hear all of the good and miraculous things done by Jesus! You really leave the service different than how you entered! Sadly tonight’s service is the last one! Here’s what you should know before it happens!

You will laugh and have a great time!

You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalm 16:11

We’ve all been having a great time under the tent each night full of laughs, fellowship and excitement! These evenings can really help you get through the next day with all the joy you need!

Experience it all with coffee!

Yes Compass has been opened! You can grab a beverage or a fresh baked Jodi Bakes dessert before and after service tonight! All proceeds go towards providing clean drinking water to other countries and rescuing victims of human trafficking so drink up! ☕️

We’ve been praying for miracles! e’ve prayed specifically for miracles, families, rededication and other things just as the Holy Spirit lead. A lot has happened in the Spirit this week! Bring someone who is struggling with something (Even with an incurable sickness )

Get here at 7pm

tent has a very beautiful interior but front and second row seats are limited and they fill fast! I’ve sat in both the front and back…THE FRONT IS BETTER!

There’s a book 📖

From hindu god-maker to Bishop today! One of the most extraordinary stories you will ever read! This book from our speaker will keep you interested and it will make a great gift that can uplift someone else! I’ve read it in under a week (I read slow) There’s a chance to get it tonight and not pay for shipping!

Believe Believe that God will speak to you tonight through the service and will meet your needs and revive your spirit! Even if you went all week or didn’t get to. If you can, come tonight at 7pm for the last service of this tent revival! I’m excited!

Free Frappes in Church  

I got a free sip of one of the most ordered cold beverages at Compass. After such a GOOD word and amazing service today at HopeNYC Church, we were all treated to a free sample of the caramel frappe! So refreshing and satisfyingly sweet after a sermon about abolishing anxiety.  Where else can this happen?

After a sip, many of us rushed straight downstairs to the café for a bigger size. It was beyond delicious.
This beverage is popular all year round! Yes even in the winter! Kids love it just as much as the adults!

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!

Fun Day Fiesta

Fun day is not just a term that described our delicious Monday night adventure at Elena’s 43 , It was a significant required set aside day specially planned to celebrate an accomplishing graduating group. Who graduated? From where?
At HopeNYC, there are many groups you can join to learn skills and fellowship. These are called Hope Groups and there is one for everyone!
My husband and I were honored to teach this semester. He taught a Spanish group while I taught beginner bloggers. On Monday, the Spanish Hope Group had their fun day at a Spanish restaurant while the bloggers group joined in and captured the experience. Although our classes were not in a classroom, we exercised the skills at the restaurant. The Spanish group spoke to the waiters in Spanish and truly aimed to hold the conversation with one another. They did great! As we sat down and ate, we had great conversations and I got to know everyone else much more. I’m excited to meet with them on Sunday for church next time. We had salads served with the restaurant’s delicious dressing! Some of us enjoyed chicken while some ordered the salmon while some got the steak, or the shrimp, even the lobster! We also sipped fresh fruit smoothies, and sodas! We had a fiesta of a time with laughs and good conversation.

 Guat’s up? XELA That’s what! (Pronounces shay-la)

One cup quenches the thirst of a child miles away. One cup rescues a victim, held in the horrific hands of human trafficking. One cup can kick-start your day with a smile in each sip!
That’s what the XELA did to me. It’s an aromatic Guatemalan slow roast that’s like PEACE in a cup! It relaxes you yet energizes you in the most smoothing and subtle way! Because it does all of this, the XELA is actually my favorite coffee at Compass. Feel free to leave a comment below and share what’s your favorite coffee?

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.
