Bosco Café was recommended to us by a local so that has to say something, and we were not disappointed. The meals were good, and the coffee excellent. Nice modern and clean premises with friendly service. It's not often that we pass through Te Kuiti, but we would certainly visit Bosco Café again.

Bosco was recommended to us by the visitor center and we were not disppointed. The meal was excellent and relaxing. The on-site beer brewery make great beer. The owner/staff was helpful in choosing our dishes and were very attentive.

We stopped here on out way from Waitomo to Turangi. It's the first great coffee we've had in days. Cake was delicious! Plenty of pre-made and made to order meals to choose from. Friendly staff, clean, cool 'scandi' style building & fit out.

I was driving from New Plymouth to Hamilton with a local and we stopped in this place for lunch. Ordering happens (as it seems as usual in New Zealand) at the counter and the food is then brought to your table. I had a beef burger which turned out to be one of the best I've had in a long... More

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.

We stopped here enroute to Auckland from New Plymouth. The coffee was excellent and the bacon and cheese scone for morning tea was delicious. There were many other mouth watering options to choose from. The service was extremely good and the facilities (including restroom) very clean. Thoroughly recommend.

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
