“Friendly Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We took the family for lunch during their visit south, and were over-come by the reception and light entertainment. Open all day, from breakfast, to dinner, The Batch Cafe offers a good selection of food and drinks, (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). Ideal for a 'snack n chat' with a mate; business colleague, or the family 'get together'.

“A Cafe to Die For”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

It never gets much better than Batch, The friendly welcome and the fact that you get a friendly welcome every time you come through the door. The coffee is sublime, the loose leaf tea selection divine (lovely not to be offered a teabag) and the freshly baked scones, brioche and baking 'literally walk out the door'. The blackboard menu features locally sourced products, freshly caught Stewart Island salmon and Foveaux Strait blue cod daily and gourmet Leelands lamb are key ingredients. Don't miss Gareth's sensational chowder. Friday evenings with a Smoked Salmon board and a glass of Central Otago pinot and Matt on guitar - it doesn't get any better. Gareth, Kate and Donna have a winner here!! Supreme National Winner awards back that up!

“Excellent food, great ambiance”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Stopped by Invercargill to load up on a few groceries and have lunch - found this cafe on TA and arrived around noon, just before the lunch rush. They have a great menu - everything sounds delicious. I had the best grilled (blue cod) fish sandwich I've ever had with artisan bread and a nice sauce. The salmon orzo salad was also delicious. Sat at a communal table and chatted up a friendly couple from Gore. The smoothies looked great. Highly recommended - go early!
