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!

Pop in here often, mostly for lunch. Always busy, would recommend a reservation to guarantee a table. Food delicious, plenty of choice on offer.

Popped in for breakfast and coffee. We ordered the full breakfast the corn fritters. Glad we went wouldn't go again. Very very expensive for over engineered food and coffee that arrives at least 15 minuted before your food

This is a modern welcoming always rather busy large cafe in Invercargill. I come quite regularly, taking friends here from out of town who visit, plus in for a meal and coffee on my own at times. I also pop in for a takeaway coffee many times that I have time, and am in close vicinity! Service is always welcoming,... More

On a tight schedule so popped in for quick coffee and something to eat. Everything looked delicious but my weakness for cheese scones made it a no brainer and I was not disappointed absolutely fabulous. Must add coffee and lamington also rated very highly. Not the cheapest place in town but taste wise its right up there.
