Nice contemporary feel to The Batch. Service great. Coffee and food very good. Was busy when we were there (understand often is), so was a short wait but staff were worked pretty hard to keep up.

If you want a quick lunch on a cold winters day, great service and a lovely atmosphere you can not go past this award winning cafe. The seafood chowder was chock full of seafood and the beer recommended to Him outdoors was a tasty drop.

Great coffee is always a must and this place really delivered. Great decor and atmosphere, but the staff really make the difference. Definitely the friendliest and most efficient service we had in Southland. Beautifully prepared and presented food. We went three times in three days.

A fabulous light lunch. They have a great seafood chowder that is full of mussels, fish etc. They also have a sticky date loaf with a toasted coconut topping. Very Turkish in style. Delicious.
