What is a dry aged steak?

A dry aged steak is a sight to behold. When properly done, this process will increase the textures, flavours and enhance your entire dining experience. At Third Wave Cafe, having this steak can take up to 40 minutes due to the fact they are SO LARGE!

A dry aged steaks are created in a highly controlled environment, at Third Wave it is our custom dry-ageing cupboard, that draws out the moisture, enhances the flavour and greatly increases the tenderness of the meat. One of the other key features is that it also transforms the meat to have a buttery and nutty flavour to it in additional to the big beefy flavours.

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.
