Any Pulled Pork Burger is seriously tasty!

Pulled Pork just ranks one of the best kinds of burgers you can get in Melbourne!

An alternative to any Beef or Chicken Burger, is a Pulled Pork Burger! One of the best burgers in Melbourne, a pulled pork burger is created when you cook pork for 12 hours in spices and it becomes so soft you can simply pull it apart. This creates a unique different texture in the mouth as well as flavour sensations!

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.


Third Wave Cafe started as a trendy inner Melbourne café with an aim to grow and so we did. After 9 years, we are one of Melbourne’s favourite American BBQ restaurants with a huge emphasis on slow-smoked meats and burgers.
