Amazing specialty coffee, restaurant quality dishes, service with a smile and no need to even cross the bridge – tell me more! Welcome to Third Rail in Waverton. Joe and Victoria noticed a gap in the market and leapt into it. Their vision was simple. They wanted to, “Combine specialty coffee and restaurant quality food with an upbeat local feel.” In just over a year, they have become Waverton’s local, one where customers have names and are not just a coffee order.
Joe has a wealth of experience in the kitchen. He was the Head Chef at Aperitivo in Leichhardt and has opened a Gastro Pub in the hills with a team of 20 chefs. He sure knows his way around the grill. Victoria’s passion is people and you can see that when you walk in – the team is always all smiles. Aaron, Geoff and Lisa are familiar faces. The team are affectionally known as the ‘Third Rail Rockstars’ and they rock out in a big way.
The café motto is, ‘Work hard, play hard, have fun and let that joy shine through to our customers’.
The menu is a crowd pleaser. It has all the staple café favourites like Avocado Bruschetta, Coconut Chia Pudding and Acai Bowls. Restaurant-style lunch options like Western Australian Prawn Linguini and King Reef Barramundi can be accompanied by white wine because yes, this is a licensed venue.
My favourite is a “BIG” Southern Fried Chicken Burger washed down with a Young Henry’s Newtowner can. Pop in for a visit you and say hi to the team –Joe will be in the kitchen wearing a baseball cap, Aaron and Victoria will be on the floor beaming their pearly whites, while Geoff and Lisa will be doing their stuff behind the machine. Say hi and tell them Shaun sent you.
