Third Wave Cafe has just opened the doors to its new Prahran location. Bigger sister to the existing Third Wave Cafe in Port Melbourne, it pioneers a culture focused on good coffee and food from around the world including Russian dishes and various options with an American BBQ twist.
The cafe has a neighbourhood vibe - alive with a bustling breakfast, brunch and lunch trade. We loved the casual and contemporary decor. Bright walls are complemented by comfortable dark wooden furnishings and potted plants provide a clever accent, as do the light bulbs that hang from the ceiling.
As expected from a cafe that is serious about coffee, the coffee is seriously good. Our coffees were rich and full-bodied with a smooth cocoa taste and nutty undertone.
Adopting a chilled Prahran culture, the new Third Wave is ready and waiting on a new influx of clients as the news about it spreads. With waitstaff that are warm and friendly and service that is desirably prompt, it is the perfect scene for a lazy afternoon with good friends and good coffee.
