Craving a flavourful escape that is sure to ignite your tastebuds? Welcome to Third Wave Cafe, home of the magnificent Juicy Lucy Burger. This tantalising masterpiece is more than just a burger; it’s a gastronomic adventure promising an unforgettable experience with every single bite.

What makes the Juicy Lucy Burger so exceptional? For starters, it begins with a phenomenal 200-gram patty. But this is no ordinary patty. The Juicy Lucy Burger, named aptly for its deliciously juicy nature, is uniquely stuffed with rich, two-year-old Jack cheddar cheese and crispy bacon. The magic unfolds when it’s grilled to perfection. As the heat does its work, the cheese melts inside the patty, merging with the bacon and beef, creating a harmony of flavours so delectable, it’ll send your taste buds on a joyous rollercoaster ride.

And that’s just the beginning. The Juicy Lucy is topped with fresh, vibrant tomatoes, adding a tangy sweetness to this carnivorous delight. Next come crispy onion rings providing an additional textural contrast and layer of flavor to this complex delicacy. And just when you think it can’t get any better, it does. Drizzled atop this towering spectacle is an apple bourbon BBQ sauce – sweet, tangy, and just the right hint of smoky bourbon – a welcome surprise that complements the juicy patty and its accompaniments impeccably. And to finish off this culinary creation, a generous dollop of horseradish sauce delivers a zesty kick, elevating the Juicy Lucy Burger from Third Wave Cafe to a whole new level of deliciousness.

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.
