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.

I have visited the batch a few times with always positive experiences until yesterday. Popped in with my 2 teenagers for a snack around 3pm. It wasn't as busy as i have seen it and we got a table no problem. The toasties & smoothie came promptly but after waiting for the hot chocolate & cake I had to ask where it was. They rushed around & popped the cake in a takeaway bag & I waited for the hot chocolate to be made. Got to the car & it was a coffee !!!! Very disappointed but didn't have time to go back & I know they would have been great & made me another but this is very out of character & I will return as lovely food.

I'd heard how great this cafe was before coming to invercargill and really hoped it would be as great as other people said it would be...it is and so much more. Having been to the best cafes in Auckland and Christchurch this one felt like you were walking in a very trendy top notch cafe, food options are fantastic and very reasonably priced. Coffee is perfect and have been a number of times just to confirm! Would recommend any day however can be very busy at peak times.

Had a breakfast that cost a fortune, and was a tiny portion. Definatly not the place to get your moneys worth. Nice decor inside, and friendly staff did make it a slightly more enjoyable experience.
