A TA recommendation that really worked for us. This place might not be the cheapest place to eat, but we had a very very enjoyable breakfast and great coffee in their busy cafe. Just wish we lived a little closer so we could go there again !

First morning in Invercargill looking to breakfast. Parking a nightmare. Marked on town map so decided to try and find it. Location not where you expect such a good cafe. Locals must know about it because it was quite busy. Both had eggs Benedict, delicious. Service prompt staff very pleasant.

We followed a previous post on tripadvisor and found this cafe on a Saturday morning. The location was surprising- on the edge of the business district of town and underneath an office block.

We stopped here and had a scone (amazing) and a creamy chicken melt sandwich. Both were delicious and reasonably priced.

Opens at 7am and everyone is smiling as people pour through the door. I ordered the coconut muesli and a flat white. Coffee arrives creamy and hot (not too hot) and then the muesli arrives complete with a little pansy on the top. This is the best place around

The Batch is renowned for great service, yummy food and excellent coffee. Many clients feel it is their second home. A visit here would be a highlight of your trip to Southland.
