We had a fantastic birthday lunch at the Batch. They very happily reserved a table for us which we were very grateful for as they are a very busy restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious. I have no complaints at all just praise for this fantastic cafe. We will be back.

My husband and I grabbed a takeaway lunch from here recently. I had a chicken pesto sandwich and a mocha cake - which was sublime. The coffee here is excellent as well Food is probably on the pricier side, but i think it is good value for money

Without doubt this is the best coffee in Invercargill, coupled with great food, freshly made and changing regularly . The only problem you may encounter is finding a free seat as everyone knows how good they are!!

I don't think there's any other cafe to visit in invercargill. The Batch just trumps everything hands down. I always come here for breakfast so can't comment on lunch service but something as simple as eggs on toast here is just delish. Coffee is great too. There is a bit of a wait but only because it's always so busy!

I heard about this cafe from some locals who recommended it as the best place for coffee and brunch. It is obviously quite new as the fit-out was clean and contemporary and there was a real buzz amongst the staff. My breakfast of toast and jam and coffee was delicious and the rest of the meals I saw coming past... More

The centre of Invercargill cafe culture, many of the people I know call it their 'office'. Why so popular? Rustic, relaxed environment, friendly service, most of all great food and coffee.. I can't believe how lucky we are to have such great places in Southland.
