Great stop

We stopped here enroute to Auckland from New Plymouth. The coffee was excellent and the bacon and cheese scone for morning tea was delicious.

Every single table was dirty and staff were walking straight past. I can only imagine what the kitchen is like. Food was okay but I would prefer salad with my BLT instead of fries.

As we family we passed through Te Kuiti and searches for a highly rated cafe to stretch our legs. Only to find the kitchen closes at 3pm. I ordered a ice coffee after requested a ice coffee (milkshake with ice cream). I received a cold coffee with a blob of ice cream.

Bosco has always been a favourite place to stop at on a journey south....good coffee scrumptious food. Sadly it is no longer, the coffee was poorly made and undrinkable. The hot cross bun was stale and inedible and the scone messed with and cut up as if it was to be served to a young child. Please Bosco give your... More

We stopped here for a quick coffee. And even though they were busy the service was good. My partner who ordered her normal funny drink for a change did NOT have to send it back. They got it right first time

Good selection of cafe food, delivered in a friendly manner. Love the yummy chocolate brownie that comes with the cup of tea/coffee. I don't like pastry that is reheated in the microwave...it goes soft. That's my only complaint.

The service at Bosco's is excellent. Sometimes you have to wait a wee while but the food is worth it. The atmosphere is casual and hip.

If you want up pay 18 bucks for half a burger by all means stop here. A sliver of bread less then half a chicken breast, and some token salad. Over priced! Wouldn't stop here again.
