In CBD and in need of a quick coffee fix? This cute little cafe will give you respite from the hustle and bustle of the city while hook you up with some tasty coffee or crisp fresh iced tea, depending on what you prefer.
Best part of the deal: while sipping on that great tasting coffee you’re also doing good. Because STREAT is more than your average corner coffee shop, it’s a social enterprise that provides homeless youth with the life-skills, work experience and training they need to start a career in the hospitality industry. It’s a total win-win situation – doing good while eating good!
STREAT has several different locations, but we were hanging out on Bourke street, so we opted for the quiet setting on McKillip Street, just a stone’s throw (is this even a saying in English? It is in Swedish, so hey, y’all have to live with it!) away.
It was a hot morning, and we settled on trying their cold options; a cold brew and a beautifully crisp iced tea, both as tasty as they look pretty. Only issue; I only realised after I received the iced tea that I’m not an iced tea kind of a gal, so I went back and got myself a chai latte as well. A delicious chai latte on top of that.
Food wise you’ll get the general cafe food, with some delicious looking sandwiches and scrumptious pastries. My favourite: the croissant. Perfectly crunchy vs soft and decadent without being overpowering. Umm, I need to stop writing now, as I feel a sudden urge to go past STREAT to get some pastries.
