A King Country icon, Bosco is a great stop over en route - well - to virtually anywhere. Stopped there both ways on our journey to Wanganui Had a delicious frittata and it came with really good chutney and a side salad. The coffee is always good and delivered with a small piece of Brownie - a nice touch. We... More

Perfect spot to have a break with delicious coffee and food. Point of difference is the area for little ones. Worth stopping!

We make regular trips to Hamilton so Bosco Cafe is about the right distance from home to stop for coffee and food. We are never disappointed with either. Always get warm welcome from the staff. On this trip I had a toasted Bacon,Mushroom & cheese sandwich, the bread was thick and soft plus nicely toasted Yum! My flat white coffee... More

At the northern end of the main road into Te Kuiti. A place to rest on your journey to the Central Plateau from Auckland. Off street parking and a small garden to wander through truly is a great place to rest. Only disappointment was that they no longer have the GIANT muffins I remember from earlier visits!

Have been here a few times now. It is on the outskirts of TK but easy to find. Nice food. This time I had a spinach and feta tart with relish and salad which was very tasty. The coffee was good too. I think it is a little pricey for a country cafe and the service can be a little... More

Always our favourite stop on the way to New Plymouth. Absolutely divine orange and blackberry muffin, good coffee and leaf tea.

Stopped here going from Auckland to National Park and is certainly a step up from your normal country coffee rest stop. Food and coffee were both pretty good if a little expensive. I suppose you have to pay a premium for something like this in the countryside...good place to stop.

This is probably the best place to stop for proper coffee in the area for quite some distance! So I would definitely stop for a coffee and they do wonderful food as well. Great atmosphere and everything taste home-cooked! They even have filled rolls if you just want something quick to take away.
