Description: Cafe & restaurant offering fresh local cuisine masterminded by our team choose from the brunch menu served from 7:30am until 11:15am or feast on delectable delights from our lunch menu from 11:30am 'til 2:30pm. Need something on the run? Call ahead to order and grab a bite to eat from our cabinet - EVERY item is packed full of locally sourced goodness, made fresh for you each and every day. Our Hummingbird Coffee blend has quite a backstory: About Re:start: Hummingbird Coffee was invited to join the initial reopening of the Christchurch CBD. They designed and constructed a fully operating café out of three 40 foot extra high shipping containers. Along with this, they designed and developed Re:start the blend; a extremely complex composition of nine different single origins, all roasted by hand separately before blending. It’s this approach of single small ‘batch’ roasting that offers the opportunity to have the same coffee in the blend roasted both medium and a wee bit darker.

Seems to be a popular place judging by the number of people waiting for take away coffee. Lovely cafe with great seating areas. Good cabinet food and brilliant breakfast. Leaf tea, always better than bags. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming

3 trips to the Batch now. All visits the cafe was busy. Breakfast and coffee. Gluten & dairy free options. Good coffee. Cafe decorated and styled well, has good atmosphere and varied clientele. Middle range prices. Good cabinet selection and blackboard menu. Staff very busy but still friendly and professional. Street parking is fine. Ideal place to meet a friend etc. Not too noisy. I must say its an unexpected scene for Invercargill, but very welcome indeed. Keep up the good work. Will be back again with bells on.

The Batch is one of those rare little gems that once you find it you keep going back. The coffee is by far the best in town, service is quick and seem less, the food is really yummy and well priced. Keep up the great work guys!

Kind of a place that is a place to be seen, but the coffee is great and the food options are diverse and well presented, so it has to be forgiven! Good outside seating and lots of different seating options inside depending on size of the group or the eating intention.

Newish breakfast and lunch place in a flash new business building - accountants are obviously doing well in Invers! Very busy at lunchtime, but quick and professional service. Yummy seafood chowder and nice toasted ciabatta, and a very good smoothie. Acoustics made it quite loud; some outside seating, for when the sun shines...
