8 Reviews for Batch Cafe
Other towns in Southland could learn from this cafe ie if you are open, people will come to enjoy the atmosphere projected by the people that work there and are happy to be there unlike other establishments around the country. Attitude is everything, we own a commercial building opposite the batch and this cafe is a draw card for our tenants.
Well they had our orders at the counter but waited until everyone had arrived and paid before starting to cook so our wait time (there were 14 of us) was about 50 minutes and the last person was just on the hour. I had only ordered muesli so that wait was a stretch.
The food was good so I would go back in a smaller group, but it was frustrating to have to wait that long when we had planned to try and avoid that very thing.

The cheese scones are a must to take away for a sneaky afternoon tea. My # 1 breakfast/brunch choice would be the lemon and ricotta pancakes with blueberries…plus a side of bacon…absolutely devine! Thank god i don’t live closer as I would visit far too regularly.
My friend said it is the best eggs bene she has ever tasted.
Can’t wait for my next trip south
