Stopped in on a road trip north

My Mother in law and I stopped in for lunch on a recent road trip and had a really nice experience. Great food, I had the nacho's which were great (needed a doggy bag) and my MIL had a BLT which she really enjoyed. Sat out on the nice deck on a nice sunny day. Nice casual atmosphere and outlook.... read more

I've stopped a number of times over the years. I've never stopped at the fat pigeon at Pio Pio as everyone tells me this is better. I'm always underwhelmed. The lack of choice, the ordinary food. Maybe it is the captive audience and what else is there in Te Kuiti. This time I stopped up the road for an apple... More

A stop at Bosco's breaks our journey in half and we are always pleased with the service, the selection of counter food and the quality of the hot drinks.

Finally got to stop here on a Xmas shopping trip. They must have been busy before I arrived as I had to clear my own table, or the standing around behind the counter must have been very interesting. Will insert here that it wasn't till I was leaving that tables started getting cleared. Berry smoothie.... smoothie means smooth, needed a... More

On a trip back home and we had lunch here, three BLTs and two coffees. Coffees were on par with some one Melbourne's best. For a country town you've really mastered it!! The BLTs were just Devine with a perfect side serving of Fries. Service was great, coffees came quick with meals not far behind. Would recommend as the NO.1... More

This is a great little place to stop and fuel up on some good grub. Everybody had different things from salads to burgers and everybody was happy even the kids!!! Clean, spacious and good staff make Bosco's a place worth visiting.
