Quiche, a tasty feta salad and new potatoes to die for.. The dessert of lemon slice and fresh fruit was equally acceptable.Staff were lovely and... read more

We had been to this cafe a few years back and loved it then so waited until we got to Te Kuiti to have lunch this time round. We don't often get to travel through Te Kuiti and it was absolutely worth waiting until we got to the cafe. Fantastic fresh and varied food, friendly service and a light filled... More

Stopped in for breakfast on my way through Te Kuiti. Big friendly smiles from all the staff. The eggs benedict was delicious and the coffee very good. The restaurant itself is very nice with a variety of seating both in and out. Little did I know, but once I left is when the real service started. It wasn't until I... More

One of the early stops on my visit to NZ, wow - don't those kiwis know how to make sandwiches! The lamb sammie was to die for! And aren't they fond of putting beetroot on everything? I don't normally care for it but it was hard to avoid, but it works. Nice ambience & pleasant staff. If you're going to... More

We always enjoy stopping here to have a stretch, good food & great coffee when we are travelling from Taranaki to anywhere north of Te Kuiti. The staff here are brilliant and very obliging, and prices are not too bad. We highly recommend Bosco's

We have stopped off here on several occasions when passing through Te Kuiti and have always found the food and service to be very good. We paid $19.50 for the smoked fish omelette and although it tasted lovely, we expected some sort of salad to accompany the dish as well. Apart from that, the food is lovely and the tranquil... More

We were on our way from Auckland to the "Forbidden World" and were looking for a place to eat. Imagine our delight to find the Bosco Cafe in Te Kuiti! It offers ample indoor and outdoor dining, an interesting menu and excellent food. We can recommend their BLT, served on ciabatta and the giant meatball, which tempts from the self-service... More

For being the highest rated restaurant in town, I had higher expectations. The food was beautiful and the location is great, but taste-wise I found it to be average.
