Nautigals Café – Apollo Bay, VIC

58 The Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay, VIC, 3233

Wanting to try someone else’s coffee in Apollo Bay, we just wandered in here to find the counter unattended (there were some people out the back having a chat in the kitchen, but you don’t want to disturb….).  After a young guy came in off the street, I was finally able to negotiate the vending of some caffeinated combustibles – I assume he worked there…    Not sure if this place was finished or not, but there were two rooms – one with the lights out – and plenty of inside seating (a few tables outside as well).  There were three PCs available for the weary traveller to check their stock portfolio or their myspace.  There was also some horrible music playing which precludes this place as a venue for study and/or reflection, and I would suggest that unless you had perfected the art of conversation in night clubs, then you would be hard pressed to carry on something meaningful here.  Best to get your coffee to go and sit by the ocean…

Latte Quality – Good.

Cost – $3.50 – for a regular take away.

Coffee Supplier – Bean Ground and Drunk.

Fair Trade –  Yes.

Venue Suitable for:

  1. Just went to Nautigals cafe in Apollo Bay and lined up for 15 mins to get a takeaway coffee and then was told they are not doing takeaway coffee because it is too busy. Then I look to the left only to find that the are handing out 4 of them! How the he’ll does that work. Worst cafe in Apollo Bay! Little do they know that we have a family business here and they just made a very big mistake!!!!

  2. Thanks for your comment Nikki – sorry your experience was so bad – as you can read from mine, it wasn’t that much better – but at least there are other cafes you can choose from – I hope your experience of them will be better. If not – perhaps add coffee to you family business….

    I hope it all goes well for you in Apollo Bay – beautiful place.
