The Compass has a friendly and helpful staff. The setting is comfortable and warm. Bakery items, coffee, and some western items are available.

The Compass is located in Shangri-La old town, we had a coffee and dessert in the afternoon and a delicious dinner in the evening. Nice clean place, very friendly and talkative staff, feels like at home.
