home.two - Now Open!

home.two, a social enterprise cafe by Society Melbourne, is now open at the New Student Precinct Mon-Pop site!

The New Student Precinct is partnering with Society Melbourne, a social enterprise hospitality group that seek to alleviate youth homelessness, in opening the newest cafe on the Parkville campus - home.two.

Serving up delicious coffee from Wood & Co, hearty granola from Dad’s Oats, and situated right across from the central university tram stop on Swanston Street, home.two is the perfect place to grab your coffee fix on the way to class, or to catch-up with friends over a delicious, sustainable lunch.

home.two is an all vegan, and gluten-free friendly pop-up, offering fresh produce to better your studies and fuel your work day.

Society Melbourne’s enterprises are always environmentally friendly, all cups and packaging are plant-based and biodegradable. Environmentally-savvy patrons who bring their own coffee cup or lunch container can expect a discount on their order.

home.two is brought to you by the same team as home.one, a local Brunswick favourite and Crêpes for Change, a go-to at Melbourne beloved food truck parks. Crucial to home.two and Society Melbourne’s social impact model is the opportunity to provide vital training and employment opportunities for young people experiencing or at-risk of facing homelessness. They aim to provide meaningful, fairly paid employment that enables their trainees to pay their bills, live independently and establish a healthy, happy life for themselves within an appropriate and supportive working environment.

As well as providing sustainable change for our community, the design of the café is also sustainable. Society Melbourne aims to always make sure their enterprises are environmentally friendly. The cafe is housed in a recycled, converted shipping container, beautifully designed by Breathe Architecture as part of the University’s New Student Precinct Projects program of activations.
