Our Story

The Well Community Development Corporation focuses on Housing, Placemaking and Economic Development in the Middlebury neighborhood of Akron. Compass is a program of The Well CDC, as an Economic development driver and a placemaking initiative in our community we want to operate as a successful small business that is for all people, making our community a destination and creating a sense of place for neighbors.  All of our profits go directly back into the community towards creating a thriving community, with flourishing individuals.

How To Support Us

Because our cafe is so large, and our focus is on creating a sense of place and community, we rely on in house customers.  With the carry out and delivery only update from the state, we need as much traffic as possible so we can continue serving our community.  This means placing orders for curbside pickup or delivery or buying some beans to take home and brew yourself!

Continue to come out and get coffee, tea, pastries, and breakfast sandwiches from us!  We're still here (until further notice) during the pandemic, and we want to continue serving our Middlebury neighbors during this challenging time.  Not only are you supporting local when you come to Compass, but you're also supporting an entire community!
