Best breakfast in St Kilda

Great coffee and fantastic food. Flavours combinations are divine and just different from every other standard breakfast place. It is busy so I suggest getting there early, particularly on the weekend, otherwise you may have to wait for a table. I have been here many times over the years and it... read more

It is busy so I suggest getting there early, particularly on the weekend, otherwise you may have to wait for a table. I have been here many times over the years and it never fails. good customer service as well.

Fantastic for breakfast. Went with good friends who are locals and who rightly swear by the place. Had the omelette and enormously fetching it was too. Loved every element. Beautiful coffee as well. Love the service too. Gorgeous NZ waitress with a bewitching smile and the fun manner to match. Doesn't get much better.

The food is freshly made when it reaches your table. Simple yet tasty breakfast menu especially the omelette with mushrooms, goats cheese and basil. Yummy! The coffee's not bad. And the customer service is good.

Really great good. Went for breakfast, the food was beautiful and the service was great. The only issue was that is was so busy we had to wait for a table, but it was worth the wait. :)

Been here several times now. Excellent coffee and tasty food. The omelette with goats cheese and basil is delicious and they have black pudding. The staff are friendly helpful. I highly recommend Batch.

This wasn't the first time I'd been to Batch but it was the first time I'd tried their haloumi burger and now I just cannot wait to go back and savor it all over again.. In fact I think it will have to be tomorrow because like I said..I just can't wait. Husband had a lamb dish which he declared... More

A great neighbourhood cafe with friendly efficient service and a kitchen that really knows how to cook with flavour and how to apply some creativity to the latest breakfast and lunch favourites. I have been to Batch six times now, eating something different every time, and the meals are absolutely delicious. Don't expect fancy decor; it's all about the food... More

For the first half of this year when I lived just around the corner, I breakfasted/brunched/lunched at Batch at least once a week, often two. I'm now living half way around the world and have realised how lucky I was to live so close to a place that offers such good food for such rare value. The breakfast menu, especially... More
