Third Wave has become a religious experience on the Melbourne restaurant scene. Since opening in 2010, they have cemented a reputation as a great neighbourhood cafe with a loyal breakfast and lunch crowd. People come from far and wide to enjoy their exceptional coffees and vast breakfast & lunch menu. Then by night, they transform into a bustling BBQ joint, inspired by the classic American smoke houses of the deep south. Today they are proud to be recognised as one of the best American BBQ experiences you'll have outside of the US.
How it began
Inga is the passionate owner of Third Wave Cafe, a lady with a fierce drive for delivering a quality product, which spills into every area of the business, from grass fed locally sourced meat to perfectly textured milk in your coffee from 5 Senses beans. Its been Inga’s dream to own and operate a café. So after nagging her husband for about a decade, the dream finally came true.
They like to think they have mastered the art of slow smoking, especially using their custom built smoker, named Brutus. Their American BBQ meats are melt-in-your mouth, fall-off-the-bone delicious. The house made BBQ sauces are so good that some customers want to drink them!
