My wife and I stopped here for breakfast and enjoyed it a lot. The tea was delicious and the coffee was good too. The smashed avocado was first class and the mountain rye toast was something very special. On the main strip of town, the cafe was great and I recommend it.

I bought a coffee here today - after a failed attempt further down the street. A frequent visitor here in the holidays, the coffee is always made with patience and love. My almond latte was delicious. I'll be back again tomorrow.

Tasty food with good menu variety. Sometimes there is a long queue to order as they also do takeaway coffees etc.

We just had a coffee and a milkshake here but it was served promptly and the cafe was warm and sunny inside.

Tasty morsels for breakfast or lunch, and nice coffee. Gentle music adding to ambience. Efficient service.

Good size meals and good food. I had the fat brat which is bratwurst sausage in a long roll with Swiss cheese, coleslaw and sides of English mustard and a chilli chutney. It was a very nice roll. The coffee is good too but not exceptional. Kids had pancakes with maple syrup and ice cream. They were a good size... More

Friendly staff and very nice food made this a really pleasant lunch spot. Coffee was also good. Lots of choice on the menu and despite being busy, they didn't keep anyone waiting long.

We tried Cafe 153 after receiving a local recommendation, and were so happy we did! Loved the atmosphere, and they had a good selection of breakfast items. I thoroughly enjoyed the veggie breakfast with a poached egg. Great way to end our trip to Apollo Bay.
