Excellent service and great breakfasts

Wow! This was a great breakfast in what is obviously a very popular spot for both travellers and tourists alike. I had the full woks and it was hugely filling and well cooked and presented - I would definitely go back here again!

There for a late brunch/early lunch on a Sunday. Busy place but plenty of options for different types of seating. Very friendly service and informative letting us know there was a wait for coffee and how long - giving us the option of trying somewhere else if we wanted. However we were happy to stay and the food and coffee... More

Visited the Batch several times last year on business...plus we took a few clients there for breakfast as well. Excellent Eggs Benedict, and absolutely fabulous coffee! Highly recommended... Get there early before the rush starts i.e. before 7am!

- We travelled the South Island in a campervan, and finding a cafe that had great food and was easy for a campervan to park near wasn't always easy, but this cafe , being a little of the main street, had both. The salmon dish was wonderful, and the coffee, some of the best we had on the South island.... More

There is often a queue when we go to The Batch Cafe which is a sign that it is popular with the locals. The staff are numerous and well trained so the queue moves quickly and if there is a wait on food you will be told. Good luck with choosing from the many delicious food options available.

Very popular, The Batch Cafe is aiways busy and if you are looking for a cafe that is open over the weekends this is one of the few cafes in Invercargill that is! Good food,good service and lovely atmosphere although sometimes due to seating arrangement can be a bit difficult to find a place to sit .Advise to book ahead... More

We had a nice light meal here. They were very busy and we had to wait for a table. I also bought a small ginger loaf to take away which was really nice. Service was very good and staff were pleasant.

Crisp friendly sunny cafe with great food staff and ambiance. Cup cakes Coffee Blue cod sandwich to die for. So is the big brekkie. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Recommended to all seeking good coffee and breakfast while in Invercargill.

I've been travelling to Invercargill for work for the last 5 years. I'm sure I've been to every mediocre café in town in search for a half decent coffee. I'd given up until I discovered The Batch. It's fantastic! No wonder they're so busy. Great food, great coffee, great service.
