Industry Cafe


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

After purchasing Industry in July 2018, head chef and owner Mark Heffer’s lifelong dream of owning and operating a cafe alongside his family and close friends was complete. With eight years experience as a chef with a passion for good food, that passion is now directed into bringing Invercargill the very best food and drinks possible. We want dining with us at Industry to be an experience, not just a meal.

Used the cafe twice for brekkies. First visit was not a fluke! Prob not aiming for the all-morning slow breakfasting clients and creature comforts are limited. But the food and coffee were great -and that is what we wanted.

Great coffee and one of the best breakfasts I have had in a long while. Beetroot fritters and plenty of it. Free wifi friendly staff and while not the nicest setting in an industrial estate the setting inside is fresh and modern.
