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!

The reviews are all true. The Cafe of the Year dishes up an excellent breakfast. The queues for take-away coffee in the morning is a dead giveaway...the locals know it so if you're in Invercargill get in line.

You can tell that this is a popular place to eat as there is always a lot of people coming and going and this is happening all day long. Lovely cheese scones and the staff are lovely. A great place to stop at. .

Great food and service need more room as so popular. Plenty of lovely choices and the best savoury scones in Invercargill.

Just a wonderful place to chill out and the food is awesome too. Busy, so be prepared to wait a bit, but it's worth it.
