A Happier Christmas This Year!

Christmas parties, home decorating and holiday baking are all the fun festivities for the season but nothing compares to the happy moment where a child unwraps a present on Christmas morning with their brand new toy inside. Some children will not get this moment.

Across the globe, countless children will spend Christmas without getting even one present! Several Hopers visited Haiti and Zimbabwe, along with a few other Caribbean countries and witnessed the children using empty plastic bottles and the objects we typically throw in the recycling bins as their only toys.

LAST CHANCE FOR HAPPINESS!

Giving any one of these children their very first toy would make me happy this Christmas! HopeNYC has a Toy Drive each year and everyone gets the opportunity to give! This Sunday is THE LAST CHANCE to give as the drive ends!!! If interested, you can give in-person or on the HopeNYC app! This year, the toys will be going to Zimbabwe, Trinidad, Guyana and Jamaica! This is how to make a happier Christmas…for them!

You be Happy Too!

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
