Collingwood has a brand new event space and cafe that provides support to homeless and disadvantaged youths. Cromwell STREAT is the latest project from local social enterprise STREAT (and, yes, it's located on Cromwell Street), who for the past seven years have offered opportunities and hospitality training to at-risk young people, via employment in their numerous cafes as well as fundraising initiatives such as their annual Melbourne Central Sleepover.

Having secured funding through a successful crowdfunding campaign, Cromwell STREAT isn't just a cafe, but an artisan bakery, coffee roastery, function space and youth training academy too. The 80-seat eatery — which is located in a renovated 150-year-old heritage-listed Cromwell Manor — also features a big outdoor area, all-day breakfast and lunch from 11am. Pastries and fresh loves of bread are available from 7am and STREAT's own blend will be going into coffee cups.
