Third Wave Cafe in Prahran

Having just returned from Tokyo, we were quite eager to have a decent brunch – when we were invited to try out Third Wave in Prahran this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  When they mentioned their chef, Ryo Kitahara, was a student of Iron Chef Hiroyuki Sakai, I knew a trip to Prahran would be well worth it.

The cafe itself is Port Melbourne’s Third Wave Cafe’s new sister.  It can be a bit hard to find from the street – it’s located next to the Coles carpark (a relief that parking is close and cheap – good news for cafe customers) on Cato Street.

We went on a Friday for lunch and there was a steady stream of customers ordering coffee – for good reason too as we soon found out.  They use 5 senses coffee and it was excellent.  Being a new cafe, they’re offering first time customers a free coffee and 5 free coffee vouchers if you sign up – I wish I lived closer to Prahran!

As for our meals – we chose the spicy ratatouille baked eggs and the smoked salmon omelette.  The baked eggs were a winner if comparing the two but I guess they’re very different!  Runny yolk mixing in with the spicy ratatouille, slices of chorizo and asiago cheese – I’m glad they offered us a spoon to eat this concoction and they weren’t joking when they mention in the menu it’s addictive (though highly filling!).

The salmon egg omelette was also amazing – fluffy and reminded me of the shape of オムライス (omelette rice, a popular dish in Japan).  the smoked salmon slices are quite thick and go well with the dill served on the side.

We had a wonderful lunch here – their menu is really extensive and if you check out their facebook page, there’s many photos – one that caught my eye was the smoked lamb quessadilla and their sandwiches with smoked beef brisket – I guess that’ll be for next time if I can resist trying the other version of their baked eggs!

We dined as guests at Third Wave.
