This is a find. On the outskirts of town, this cafe is worth the short walk. I has the tea smoked salmon and it was just perfect. The setting is lovely - a stylish cafe with good spaces to eat and talk. Only issue was timing and when prompted the friendly staff rectified matters. I would happily return.

After a good days work, the Batch is a great place to go, catch up with friends and enjoy great food, live music and wine. You really do need to book a table well in advance because it is insanely popular. Well worth the effort though. Easily the best Cafe in Invercargill if not all of Southland.

Great coffee with good staff. Whether you are doing take-a-way (as we did This time) or seated as we have in the past, you can be rest assured that the coffee is the least of your worries now.

This is the Top Cafe at the bottom of New Zealand! If you come all this way to New Zealand and do not enjoy some of the Best Coffee,Yummiest Food and truly Amazing Customer Service then sorry you are going home having missed out on a Kiwi experience and friendliness you will remember until you return again for that slice...

The Batch is really a very busy place and deservedly so - centrally located in Invercargill The food, coffee, atmosphere, staff and service are all excellent. There are always magazines and newspapers on hand When I visit Invercargill my first stop is the Batch. It is open Friday evenings, with some live music as well Definitely a must to visit!

The Batch is without a doubt the best coffee joint in Invercargill. They seem to have hit the atmosphere nail on the head, where many others in the area have failed. The staff are lovely and service is personalised. Food is always fresh and differing and coffee is mostly good. Always busy which is an excellent sign. I take visiting... More
