We stopped for lunch here and the coffee and food was good, if a little more pricey than we would have expected. The food arrived quickly and toilets were clean so a good option when travelling with young kids.

We're fussy with our cofffee, but Bosco hit the spot! We ordered some kids' breakfasts, a big breakfast and the granola and everything was yum.

Have stopped here a few times now whilst travelling through to Hamilton. Was a late lunch and the cafe was moderately busy at the time. The service was friendly and the cafe is clean and fresh. However, two meals arrived within ten minutes and our friends meals took another ten to fifteen minutes to arrive; not ideal. The coffee was... More

Bright and inviting cafe serving full breakfast menu. It was packed when we visited, by families, group of motor cyclists, retired couples. Popular for all. Fell in love with their flat white. Still the best coffee I have had in NZ after visiting another half dozen cafes.

Bosco Café is another culinary surprise in the midst of New Zealand's farming centre. When you walk in the door it becomes stressful to decide between the mountains of delicious and nutritious homemade goodies. I suggest trying them all, as we did, and make your own tasting platter with friends. Every mouthful worth the calories.

Sometimes while on a long drive from Auckland to Wellington your stomach and body tell you stop. It was our lucky day when my gut told me to stop in Te Kuiti and we pulled into Bosco Cafe. Busy with locals and visitors alike, our food was delivered promptly with a smile. Great eggs and a killer bowl of granola... More

Have stopped here numerous times on the way through TK, usually for breakfast which is top notch, although everything I've ever had here is best quality. Great service and relaxing environment. Highly recommended.

Had to wait 25 minutes for lunch to arrive, despite not having alot of customers around. Ordering from the cabinet definitely a better option.

Stopped off here on our way back to Auckland on Easter Monday. We have motorbikes so the big car park was great - lovely garden out back with views onto a park. The wait staff were all dressed up for easter with purple satin hair bows - so cute. Ordered a fairly ordinary breakfast but everything we had from the... More

On Easter Sunday not sure if we would find someone open, so glad we found Bosco Cafe. Great Cabinet of food all looked fresh and good value. 3 Breakfasts later and with some great coffee we left with a smile on our face, a really great feel to this place, and plenty of BAcon too
