Excellent food choices and services. Always something to buy to take away as well. getting a table can be a problem during lunch hour but visiting earlier for brunch or morning tea is a good move. The absence of nearby parking can be a disadvantage.

Coffee is awesome although you do have to wait. Had a kumara salad also which was delicious. Decor is fresh and welcoming and it is always full.

A great cafe with the most devine scones. A definite spot for morning or afternoon tea. Never done lunch but I'm sure that would live up to all my expectations.

Coffee with a customer, second time there and as busy as the first. Always happy to accommodate customers, great coffee and the savoury scones are outstanding.

Great coffee, quick service. Huge muffins, slices so not for you if you have small appetite. Difficult finding car park nearby so best suited to those who work in the area.

Friendly caring staff, great fresh, made with love food. Coffee making an art form. A CBD hub that rattles with the pride of a quality customer engagement and experience.

I have been to The Batch each time I have visited Invercargill in the last two years and it has always been packed. The tables are always full and there are people waiting to be seated or for coffee to takeaway. This is indicative of the quality of the food, coffee and the friendly Southland service.

My first choice every time I have coffee with friends or on my own. Staff are always friendly, food is wonderful and the coffee is always perfect.
