Fresh and tasty

Excellent selection of healthy, fresh food. The produce on display is a riot of colours and flavours; nothing beige and boring here! Great service too

Fabulous meal - delicious, good -sized portion and served with a smile. My husband was running late so his meal was kept warm until he arrived. Nothing is too much trouble to this restaurant.

This is one of my favorite cafes - have been 4 times now and would not go anywhere else in Invercargill. Not only is the food fantastic , the staff are always so pleasant and cheery. I had the Blue cod and mussel chowder on this occasion and it was delicious and very good value. Don't miss this cafe. !!

Visited The Batch with a girlfriend on Waitangi Day - quite coincidentally as the place we had originally arranged to meet at was closed. Lovely tea served with a proper tea cup & saucer (not a thick rimmed coffee cup which is so often the case in ither cafés I have visited). The lemon slice was just perfect, not too... More

A big mixture of people from tourists, to young mums to business people having a meeting. Several larger tables where people shared space as well as smaller ones and some comfy sofas too. Gluten free... More

Best cafe in town. Enough said? Well OK you want more detail, I understand! Best cakes to be had in any Invercargill cafe. I should know I've tried them all. Food is beautiful. Top quality ingredients only. I'm still trying to find out where they get their bacon from! I consider myself an Eggs Benedict afficionado and The Batch does... More

Yummy food and drinks. Two families with small kids, we appreciated being well looked after by the friendly staff. Would definitely return if I'm back in the hood. Shame the outlook from the outdoor tables isn't more conducive on a (rare?) sunny day!

Visiting invercargill we asked a local for a recommendation for breakfast. Unless you knew the address you could quite easily miss this fantastic cafe. Great variety of food,coffee salads, atmosphere wish this cafe was in Sydney. Definitely a must. Won't be disappointed
