“Average coffee, average food”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Cafe 153 is tucked in amongst all the other eateries along the esplanade in Apollo Bay and offers the usual breakfast and lunch menu for this type of place. The pricing is a little steep, though this might be normal for somewhere well out of the city. The coffee was only average and the service was quick and efficient without being terribly cheerful or welcoming.

The food was only average but the "mueslii slice with yoghurt topping" was held together with copha (like an old-fashioned white christmas) and pretty horrible. You'd expect something that sounded healthy - like a mueslii slice - to be a little nicer than that.

Nothing to really recommend the place but nothing "bad" about it, either.

“Relax time”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Great Coffee! I really enjoy the time spend on this place. Sat on the Sofa, really relax time! I and my friend just sat there near about 2 hours, and the staff had really good service.

“Good for a quick healthy meal at an awkward time of day”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We arrived in Apollo Bay late and this was one of the few places open for a hot lunch late in the afternoon. They had good vegan options and hearty meals at a reasonable price great on a cold windy day. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

“Good for breakfast”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We've only had brekky at '153' but come here regularly. While it's not what it was, it's probably still the best breakfast in Apollo Bay. The specially-baked fruit toast used to be die for but now just above average. The apples in the muesli are leather-skinned, so we avoid it. Pancakes are recommended. Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine are excellent. They also make a good, unburnt coffee!
