Third Wave has become a religious experience on the Melbourne restaurant scene. Since opening in 2010, we have cemented a reputation as a great neighborhood cafe with a loyal breakfast and lunch crowd. People come from far and wide to enjoy our exceptional coffees and vast breakfast & lunch menu. Then by night, we transform into a bustling BBQ joint, inspired by the classic American smoke houses of the deep south. Today we 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.

We like to think we have mastered the art of slow smoking, especially using our custom built smoker, named Brutus. Our 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.

Uniquely, you can have our amazing menu delivered to your home. We deliver up to 10km from Port Melbourne, 7 days a week. Order online on our website or call 96762399. Our delivery service extends to a full catering service where the whole menu can be ordered for your private functions delivered to most areas of Melbourne.
