We visited Batch today for a drink and small lunch. The staff were friendly and efficient service. The cafe was crazy busy, in a good way. Lots of lovely options on the menu or cabinet food. Loved seeing all the NZ food/treats on sale, brings me back to NZ just like that. They had lolly cake, peanut slabs, fresh up,... More

My partner and I have been regulars for most weekends over the last year. He loves how they cook his scrambled eggs and the portion size of his meal. I love the food and the atmosphere. The staff are all friendly and helpful and make you feel at home that you can't help but order another coffee or drink. The... More

When my friends recommended 'Batch', I imagined a large beer garden restaurant. Little did I know that it was in fact a quaint yet bustling cafe / coffee shop nestled amongst a strip of boutique gift shops and bakeries. The coffee is divine and there are so many options on the menu - deciding what to choose is a constant... More

We are always on the lookout for great food. Especially breakfast. By chance, I deviated from the usual haunts and came to Batch. The coffee was solid, but not spectacular (my standards are ridiculous so you won't be disappointed). On the other hand, the corn and zucchini fritters were divine. First, they were hot. Luke warm fritters is not unusual.... More

As far as coffee goes it's great, novelty items adorn to place to the point of it being a not for sale thrift shop. I must say though I am tiring of Cafes charging $5 for a regular size takeaway that they call a large.

They have done it again! Every time we come here we are never disappointed. The staff are professional efficient and polite (same friendly faces), the kitchen churns out amazing high quality fare and the coffee remains one of St Kilda/Balaclavas' best! We had 1/ avocado and feta mash on toasted sourdough, 2/ the spicy potato rosti with harrisa, rocket, fried... More

I caught up with a girlfriend and had heard the coffee was good so wanted to give it a try. We weren't disappointed. Service was great. They kept topping up our water without us having to ask. I had the cinnamon sugar brioche with berries and coffee - delicious!

We dropped in for lunch on a weekend trip to Melbourne, the food was fabulous and staff so friendly. We loved it so much we went back for breakfast the next day and they remembered our drink orders. Highly recommend.

I love this place. It serves the best coffee I've ever had. I have breakfast/lunch at Batch a couple of times every week, and I crave their coffees on the days that I don't. Service is always quick and friendly, and the food is tasty and fresh. I think I will be addicted to this place for life!
