“Wonderful food - great vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Loved everything about this place. Great decor, relaxed, friendly and accommodating staff. Food outrageously good - enjoyed breakfast and also left with a selection of cakes and slices for rest of our trip! Highly, highly recommended.

“Ideal Sunday morning coffee stop in Invercargill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Morning after Bluff Oyster Festival needed a good coffee, and quick bite before heading north back home. Great atmosphere, superb coffee and tasty homemade food. Even had Sunday paper delivered onto our table - added bonus. Definitely one of the best cares in town. Will be back.

“Gorgeous Breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went here 2 days running for breakfast. I tried the French toast and then the pancakes. Both were beautiful. The coffee was divine as well. We could’ve sat there all day drinking coffee and watching the world go by. The prices were very reasonable and the service very good.

“Lovely meeting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Good long blacks delivered with a jug of hot water. Cheese scones, should have won an award for these alone and the best ambience around

“A well kept secret in Invercargill.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

My wife and I discovered The Batch Cafe the other morning when we were looking for breakfast. We were not disappointed. The friendly staff and quick service were a major plus. Serving size and presentation were excellent. Coffee was also great.
We shall certainly return.
