Just changed hands. Now has fantastic, friendly new owners. We had a large gathering here and asked Bosco's to cater which they did superbly. So much food, deliciously prepared. Vegetarians catered for really well. Everyone left happy including me as the cost was very reasonable....More

I had the breakfast salad, which was a very interesting combo of bacon, eggs, and salad. Nice breakfast spot.

We waited 25min for the most pathetic eggs on toast I ever had. The bread was old and the attempt to heat it and smear a tiny bit of butter on it failed. There is no value for money - don't bother stopping.

Stopped for lunch on the way home from the mountain. Coffee was okay, BLT's and Bacon & Eggs were good. Pancakes were small for the price - more like oversized pikelets - but tasted good. Reasonable value for money.

Just had an excellent coffee and slice of traditional fruit cake here. Lovely people and they have a burger with beetroot. Classic.

All we had was coffee, but my wife said it was one of the best coffees she has had.Was a flat white. Friendly service to. The place was busy with what looked like a good food selection.

Te Kuiti is not endowed with too many cafes and we enjoyed ok coffee and scone at Bosco. Not bad, but no wow factor.

This is Colin Meads country. Drop into the Bosco cafe when passing through next time. Situated centrally on the main routes through town this cafe serves delicious food and drink. Ample parking and free wifi available. Try the Big Breakfast if your up for it.

Wasn't looking on trip advisor but noticed this place as we were driving by. Great food!! Great cakes and really good coffee to back it up. The staff were friendly and this was the nicest all round 'quick stop lunch' on our 12 day holiday...More

Always liked to stop here on the way to auckland. Had nachos for lunch and kombucha. Both ordinery and overpriced. Toilets not the best and place could do with a spruce up.

Bosco Café has been providing travellers and locals with great coffee, sustenance and relaxation for over 15 years. We are known far and wide as the place to stop in Te Kuiti.

Our food is wholesome, tasty and satisfying. There is a wide range of items in the counter display, as well as an extensive breakfast menu and several made-to-order lunch items to choose from. Everything we sell is made in our kitchen (except the famous Denheath custard squares which we import from the South Island). We have a selection of vegetarian and gluten free items available at all times.

We operate in a lovely timber and glass building, architecturally designed and purpose built. On fine days customers enjoy our outdoor seating area and garden, with beautiful Brook Park as a backdrop. We have plenty of parking, both in front and behind the café.
