I went into this cafe to grab some takeaway coffee for my wife and I. The long black was so hot and burnt that it was totally undrinkable and my latte was so weak and an absolute disappointment. I would say that if you can't get your coffee right then stay out of the game.

While staying in Apollo Bay we walked along the boardwalk and were immediately drawn in by the specials. Wonderful Prawns, Mussels, Salmon but my favourite was the Yellow Fin Tuna. Served on a bed of stir fry veg, it was fantastic. The Cafe has a relaxed seaside feel and friendly staff. Desserts looked good but was too full to try... More

We were lucky enough to be able to score enough tables for 10 for breakfast at this corner café in very busy Apollo Bay. Breakfast fare was simple, plentiful and delicious. Nothing special on the menu front but if you’re after good food, served quickly during the high season in Apollo Bay, you won’t be disappointed. Coffee and iced coffees... More

Great little spot for a relaxing breakfast. Plenty of cakes and other treats for morning/afternoon tea. Lunch menu is good as well.

The bread is excellent, the meals generous. The only problem is the ordering, there is not table service and at peak time there is one person taking the order, then running it to the kitchen to give them the order, then coming back to take the order, waited about 20 minutes in a queue to order - maybe it is...

Stopped by for afternoon coffee. Service was excellent and with a smile. Coffee was excellent and had a nice selection of cheese cakes etc to have with it. We're happy to accomodate spliting drinks for the kids as well.

I visited Cafe 153 today for a take away coffee and I was extremely disappointed by a once reliable cafe. I am happy to pay a 10% public holiday surcharge. But was disappointed to be charged $6:50 for a large coffee. When I enquirer how 10% of $5:50 should be $6:05. I was rudely told that we round up to... More
