Geelong Waterfront café

No matter the weather, our Geelong waterfront café is the place to relax with good food and great company! With gorgeous views of our famous bay stretching out in front of you, our cosy café is designed to make you feel all the comfort of home without having to worry about cleaning up after.

If you’re looking for a delicious treat, our café caters to both sweet and savoury tastes. Choose from our selection of freshly-baked cakes, biscuits and slices. We’ve also got seasonal specials, like our famous, limited edition home-made Queens Birthday scones with jam and cream!

Don’t forget we’re a family-friendly café and our heated balcony area is a great place to enjoy a coffee with friends while the kids stay out of trouble on the nearby lawn. If you want to bring the kids down to Geelong’s waterfront for a day out, drop into Sailors’ Rest afterwards to reward them (and you!) with a coffee, bubbacino and cake. Plus we’re now offering brand new kids grazing trays, packed with healthy treats to keep parents and kids alike happy.

Coffee and tea aficionados will be soothed by our Julius Meinl range, said to have been inspiring poets for more than 150 years! Whether you’re motivated by inspiration or desperation for caffeine, you can enjoy your drink in-house or grab it on the run.

Take a look at our full dining menu and drinks list and contact us to book your spot at our Geelong café.
