Description: Cafe & restaurant offering fresh local cuisine masterminded by our team choose from the all day menu served from 7am until 2pm. 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.

Healthy fresh-made salads, together with a wide range of hot and cold dishes (you've got to try their scrambled eggs and crispy bacon), and the best selection ever of home-made cakes, slices and muffins make the Batch our regular go-to for a weekend food-fest. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful, and Gareth's barista skills aren't too bad either. The share tables are a unique and wonderful way to get to know people too! Eating at the Batch won't break the bank. BTW, the Batch serves the most delicious savoury scones.

Great coffee and food nice set up. Can be very busy though and as is so popular can be hard at times to get a seat. But when busy service still really good and quality of food not affected
