The thing that has about 10 different names (egg in a hole, treasure island, birdie in the nest, egg on a wall, toad in a hole, etc. etc.) Yep, we do fancy versions of that. We park in the neighborhood (10th & Maple, Lower South Hill, Spokane, WA), and we exist for the sake of the neighborhood: bringing people together around great food, hiring local people, and benefiting neighborhood causes with a portion of each day's proceeds.

Who's ready for the FINAL Wagon Weekend of the year? On the menu this Saturday, October 3rd, is our classic breakfast burrito with or w/o bacon, as well as the "el niño!" We're sad to see this shortened season come to a close, but we hope everyone gets their fix in before we come back stronger than ever!

Welp, it’s big announcement time. Four years ago I bought a 1972 camping trailer and started a chapter of my life that would be about neighborhood and community and food. I worked my tail off for a year transforming that thing into a legal mobile food unit, with a little help from my friends. Then, with a lot of help from other friends, we served up b-fast burritos and biscuits and sandwiches and coffee for a few seasons in my beloved Cliff Cannon neighborhood. We’ve had lots of fun adventures, and a couple misadventures along the way :). But my food/neighborhood/community story is now continuing in a new chapter, as Executive Director at @feastworldkitchen working alongside dozens of former refugee and immigrant chefs who are also aspiring food entrepreneurs. And my time with The Compass Breakfast Wagon is coming to an end. But the BEST NEWS is that my dear friend Gavin Lynch has bought the business from me, and he plans to continue it (and no doubt make it better than ever). I’ve been privileged to be a mentor to Gavin since he was in middle school (via the @shiftjrhi community), and I couldn’t be happier for him to take this opportunity on. It’s the culmination of many, many conversations. He has a great heart, a knack for entrepreneurship, and food service management is in his blood! Covid times have been really tough on food trucks — gathering crowds simply isn’t the right thing to do in 2020. But Gavin has plans to salvage a bit of this season in our good ol’ spot at 10th & Maple, on Saturdays as soon as he’s fully re-permitted and ready to roll. The re-permitting is in process and has been slowed by the current crisis, to say the least (its almost like the health dept is busy w/ other stuff...). But the plan is for a safe, distanced, order-ahead takeout spot so you can stroll down and grab your fave burritos, biscuits, gravy, etc :) on a Saturday morning, and greet your neighbors from afar. And then after this season, he’ll plan for better days ahead. Support this youngin’ — I know I will be supporting him. Gavin: U GOT THIS! - Ross Carper

Looking at this drawing by Joey Bareither and remembering happier times :). We miss y'all, and the pop-up thing at Feast was fun last Saturday. But for now -- for many reasons -- our business is on hold, and we have no idea what the future will bring. We LOVE you, neighbors!

Big step down at Feast World Kitchen! Love working with fellow neighborhood food entrepreneur Dan Todd and many others on this nonprofit we are building! - Ross

All smiles when we (finally) got health dept approval today to operate out of THIS commercial kitchen at Feast’s location! We will continue with our catering-only phase (www.feastworldkitchen.org/catering) for a bit and then start rocking the takeout biz as soon as our chefs and facility feel ready to take that step well. Thanks for your incredible support and patience as we get this thing rolling and keep overcoming obstacles! Our chefs have overcome so much to make a new life here in Spokane, so it’s a joy to offer a legit kitchen to celebrate their amazing food and culture! Happy Friday y’all!

Had a blast getting to know Fadhaa in the kitchen today :)

Feast chef Fadhaa is catering a private event today! He’s used to cooking for a crowd — he ran kitchens that fed U.S. soldiers, contractors, and workers by the hundreds back in his home country Iraq. We are so glad he is cooking with us today :) - book your group’s catering at www.feastworldkitchen.org/catering

Sometimes the best breakfast is the simplest, enjoyed over quiet, slow conversation. I miss cooking for my neighbors on a Saturday morning, but closing early this year is allowing me to help launch @feastworldkitchen — and also to take an anniversary weekend with my beloved Autumn in Nelson, BC!

Feast World Kitchen is a new opportunity for refugee chefs

Friends, we are very excited for this new nonprofit / restaurant that is forming in the neighborhood! Check out this great article in the Spokesman!

It was food that brought together Bright Brown and Dorcas Awuah years ago on the other side of the world. Awuah sold kenkey and fried fish, along with other dishes, from a roadside cart in Ghana. Brown would visit the stand, buy the food and watch – with appreciation – as Awuah served others wit...

It was a wonderful summer full of love and literacy in the neighborhood at Summer Reading Club every Wednesday morning! Some of the kids requested that I bring the wagon down for a biscuit party to cap off the year... and how could I say no to that? Thanks to all the volunteers from the neighborhood and from @first_pres_spokane and thanks to these amazing kids! Have a great year at Roosevelt starting tomorrow buddies!

Best biscuits and gravy in town. A true sausage gravy not white or county gravy with just a little sausage in it. Biscuits are well made also. These are the only biscuits and gravy in town that I have found that remind me of the ones I had while living in NC for 4+ years. I will be going back often.
Madelyn eats all the biscuits.
Food and smoothie were great! C U tomorrow!
Yummmmm!!!! Great first visit to the Compass!!! Delicious rainy day brunch!! Thank you!!
What a wonderful article to read in the morning!
Fabulous Avocado Toast this morning.
Hi! Are you going to be at the West 10th location until next fall? My husband and I see you all the time park there because we don't live far from there and we were thinking about coming and trying some of your stuff sometime.
Enjoyed breakfast and meeting Ross
Happy Birthday Ross!!!! Another delicious breakfast for the Villa Familia! ;) Thank you for getting up so early (3:30am??!!) to make so many people happy ;)
U Gotta STOP HERE!
