Good food and strong coffee, a sunny place no matter the weather

Enjoyable food and fast friendly service. The coffee is good and the atmosphere is lovely. Not cheap but worth the extra expense for the overall enjoyment factor.

This place does great food and service but due to its popularity you MUST go before or after the lunch time rush, although they have a lot of seating it's still full every day.

Batch is an interesting cafe subsumed by an accountants building. It has won awards which it deserves for the quality of the food and the comfortable ambiance. Avoid lunch hours because it is so popular and you will be able to lounge on the comfortable furniture at your leisure. Recommended.

with 2 sides of the café being glass, you can usually find a patch of sun even in Invercargill!. On my most recent visit to Invercargill I made it to the Batch for their Brioche 4 times. Each time I had a very enjoyable café experience in every manner. The best brioche they had that week was banofee brioche.

I come to the Batch every time I'm in invercargill and it never fails to be awesome. Food, coffee and service is consistently excellent and it always has a nice buzzing vibe. It's not hard to see why this place is always busy (-not that the service is compromised by that, I might add!)

This is a busy coffee shop/restraunt. There is plenty of food and coffee choice and the venue is bustling and lively. Exciting place for a break in a sometimes dull city.
