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.

Don't arrive thinking Invercargill cafe cuisine is only about cheese rolls and mugs of tea. The Batch is a high-end cafe with classy food, smart service, and a great coffee that will clear that up super quick. It's an award-winning spot on the cnr of Spey & Deveron St that really delivers. A chicken noodle salad I tried was zingy, spicy, and a perfect lunch. By the way, you really should also try those cheese rolls somewhere. It's a Southland thing. No excuses.

Have been here twice for lunch when visiting Invercargill, food on both occasions was tasty and the staff helpful. Can be very busy at certain times so it's worthwhile booking a table. A good above average cafe lunch.

This is a favorite place to go. The food is scrumptious. Its hard to choose as everything looks so good. The decor is great and the seating arrangement is varied.It is easily accessed...quite central. Its always busy which is a good sign. There always great magazines and newspapers to read if you are waiting for a friend to arrive. You can sit outside when its warm enough and as we have had a warm Autumn outside seating is popular.

Nothing flash but good coffee and meeting venue. Friendly staff and service is as expected. Have a couch if you are lucky enough to get there when no one is already sitting there.
