Feeding the heart and soul of the neighbourhood

Sovereign Palms has its very own restaurant/café – and it’s set to become the heart of the neighbourhood. Café owner Jane Batt (pictured above right with Sovereign Palms Manager Tracey Watson) is a warm, friendly, highly experienced specialist who knows what works and has a passion for Sovereign Palms.

Jagz of Sovereign Palms opened in November 2014. Southern hospitality is natural for Jane, who is originally from Gore. She has established and runs successful, but different, cafes in Invercargill and Northwood. She is relaxed and focused, and sees the key for the Sovereign Palms cafe is to make it local, supporting local people; the cafe, restaurant and shop facility need to be somewhere residents want to go, and a destination for others. ”
