Eggs Florentine & Benedict Fusion 

Imagine a breakfast that challenges the status quo, elevates your taste buds and starts your day with an undeniable ‘wow’ factor. Meet the Eggs Florentine & Benedict Fusion, now available at Third Wave Café. It’s not just a breakfast dish; it’s an edible adventure that combines two all-time favourites into a single mouth-watering masterpiece.

Your journey begins with a perfect toasted muffin that serves as the base of this innovative culinary creation. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, it provides an ideal stage for the flavourful drama that is about to unfold.

Next, we journey to Florence with a layer of spiced sautéed spinach. Lightly wilted and seasoned with a secretive blend of spices, the spinach brings a touch of Italian elegance to the dish. It’s a nod to the classic Eggs Florentine and a testament to the fact that leafy greens can indeed be the star of the show.

From Italy, we cross the English Channel to pay homage to the quintessential Eggs Benedict with the addition of succulent, crisp bacon. Cooked to the brink of perfection, the bacon’s smoky richness interplays with the earthy spinach, creating a delightful dance of flavours. It’s a dance that invites your taste buds to join in and experience the harmony of this unlikely duo.

And what is an Eggs Benedict or Florentine without the crowning glory of a poached egg? At Third Wave Café, only free-range eggs make the cut. Expertly poached to a silky finish, the egg perches atop its predecessors, waiting to release a cascade of golden yolk at the touch of a fork.

To bind this breakfast sonnet together, a generous drizzle of zesty hollandaise sauce is introduced. This isn’t your average hollandaise. It’s a tangy, velvety concoction that ties the dish together, marrying the distinct elements into a unified gastronomic extravaganza.

This Eggs Florentine & Benedict Fusion is an all-star ensemble of textures and flavours. It’s a culinary journey that takes you from the crunchy toasted muffin to the velvety poached egg, with pit stops at the spicy spinach and crispy bacon. Every bite is a testament to the joy of fusion cooking and the exciting possibilities it presents.

Third Wave Café, renowned for its creative approach to breakfast, serves this masterpiece before 1pm. Why such a precise cut-off, you ask? Because good things should be savoured and not rushed. This is not a dish to be scarfed down on the go. It’s a breakfast experience that deserves your time, your attention, and your appreciation.

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.
