Been here several times, always good. The homemade brioche are the best I've ever tried, so fresh and fillings are stunning. Service is super friendly and efficient considering how busy they always are. Menu ticks all the boxes with small tweaks on classic cafe dishes that keep it from being just another cafe menu. Toilets are always clean and the... More

This the best place by a country mile for coffee or brunch. Hummingbird coffee, perfectly made, with a smile. The music selection is top retro, good quality up to date mags to browse, and the decor is light and funky. Can't fault it!

We were here over a long weekend and it was busy. The food was great - I can highly recommend the cheese and ham scones and the lemon scrolls (I even sent a message on Facebook to see if I could get the recipe but haven't heard back). The team were efficient and friendly and while the coffee wasn't to... More

This place has style, ambience and great food, it's no wonder it's won so many awards. I had the lamb burger and it was an extravaganza of flavour. The coffee is smooth and the service friendly. An Invercargill must-do.

Locals tell you that this is the best cafe in Invercargill....and we are sure they are right! My wife and I have very high standards on coffee, and The Batch met our expectations. And the food is sensational - healthy and tasty and beautifully presented. A great find for us and highly recommended.

I stopped at the Batch after a long 3 hours in the car and I couldn't have been happier! They've got great coffee and food plus wifi and a wonderful atmosphere. If I'm ever back in Invercargill I will definitely come back!

I have been to the Batch several times on different visits to NZ and it never disappoints, the staff are so well trained and friendly! If you look at all the Hospitality awards the have won you will realise this is a very special place.
