Connections Café


Compass Connections Café was established in 2016 through a special collaboration between Compass and Cricks Sunshine Coast (Nambour Dealership).

Our vision was to provide meaningful vocational opportunities for people with disabilities looking for real-world hospitality experience and to unleash their inner barista, cook or waiter / waitress! We took our vision to Cricks, and within just a few months, we launched our very first social enterprise café, co-located with the Cricks Nambour dealership.

Connections Café has become a signature social enterprise within the Nambour community, with many regulars visiting us, including monthly drop-ins from the Porsche Club!

Open 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.

Connections Café is also about to enter into a new era – watch this space for some exciting new developments coming very soon!


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 they will also likely make yours!



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!
