First things first: the coffee. At Port Melbourne’s Third Wave Cafe, owner Inga has searched far and wide for Australia’s best cup of joe, and after months of careful contemplation, she decided on 5 Senses, a local roaster whose single-roast coffees and superlative blends are the talk of Melbourne’s gourmet coffee scene. Plus, having received training from some of the world’s best baristas, Inga and her staff really know their stuff – this is a cafe you can count on for an exceptional espresso.
Alongside Melbourne’s finest caffeinated beverages, Third Wave Cafe’s kitchen churns out some of the city’s very best barbecue dishes – that’s American-style barbecue, to be exact – as well as Russian specialties from Inga’s homeland. Featuring ribs with meat that falls off the bone, pulled-pork sliders and sandwiches galore, Third World Cafe on Port Melbourne’s Rouse Street offers up a real smorgasbord of options. Even better, the cafe opens up early for breakfast and serves incredible eggs, parfaits, muffins and satisfying platters. Make sure to reserve ahead!
