Excellent breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the service was brisk and quick. Mind you it was 8.30am on Melbourne Cup day. Recommend.

Just the place to start the day. They do a great breakfast, large platefull of eggs, baco, sausage, hash Brown, mushrooms etc. The place is very popular and has seating inside and out, with a sea view.

Was happy with our overall visit to 153. Staff were very welcoming on entering and happy to answer any questions we had in regards to their menu. We had the big breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed every morsal. Only issue was the wait. Otherwise will definitly visit again.
