WELCOME TO CONNECTIONS CAFÉ!
Compass Connections Café was established in 2016 through a special collaboration between Compass and Cricks Sunshine Coast (Nambour Dealership) and has recently undergone a complete transformation into one of the Coast’s most iconic destination cafes with a purpose!
Through this social enterprise, we provide meaningful vocational opportunities for people with disabilities looking for real-world hospitality and customer service experience and to unleash their inner barista, cook and waiter / waitress. Since opening, we have had over 50 Trainees from across the local community undertake vocational training and have served countless customers delicious meals and treats!
Connections Café has grown to become one of our most successful and vibrant social enterprises, with many regulars visiting us, including monthly drop-ins from the Porsche Club and many other community organisations. We are now also featured on the Nambour Street Art trail thanks to the beautiful mural on the front of our premises, painted by local artist Ross Holloway.
Open from Monday-Friday from 6:30am – 2:30pm, we offer a full breakfast and lunch menu, including sweet treats that are all made in-house, along with coffees, teas and delicious milkshakes.
SERVICE WITH A SMILE
When you visit Connections Café, you can expect to be greeted with a smile by our Trainees, who will also go out of their way to serve you and make sure your experience is a great one. Our Trainees are involved in everything from food preparation to cooking, coffee making, serving, cash handling and cleaning.
For them, working in the Café is a dream come true and a chance to not only realise their goal of working in a hospitality environment, but to also serve their community and make meaningful connections each and every day!
We encourage everyone to come by and visit – not only will you make our Trainees’ days, but we know that they will also make yours!
WE CAN CATER FOR YOUR EVENT!
In addition to offering a full breakfast and lunch menu, Connections Café also offers catering for local businesses and events.
We have catered for everything from community events and local government gatherings to funerals and birthdays. Compass Trainees are also involved in our catering offering and are part of the team helping to prepare and package up your food and beverages!
