Good food good service

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

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

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.

I have been to here many times. The food is always quite a treat with yummy things to choose from, but if you go here regularly, the food can become quite boring. The menu stays fairly consistent. Service is always great, atmosphere lovely. During the busy lunch breaks, the noise can become a bit echoey, I assume it's due to... More

Stayed at the lodge across the road. Had breakfast delivered (bonus) My husbands breakfast was delicious (The Big Breaky?) Sadly my pancakes were dry and unpleasant. Saying that I would go back for another TBB :)

The story of my visit to this cafe began in Taumarunui as a casual question in the iSite about where to go for afternoon tea on my drive north. With barely a moment's hesitation back came the answer: Bosco Cafe. Recommendations are easy to make but I was blown away by what I discovered on my arrival. It is a... More
