The reason I can only give a rating of 3 is because the prices are really high. Conveniently located right on the main road. Spacious eating areas. There were three of us eating lunch. Two people ordered chicken sandwiches of some sort and both enjoyed...More

Bosco's is a great place to go for casual dining - I live in Sydney and their menu is as good and up to date as anywhere. They also cater for gluten free and Vegetarians. Good coffee and lovely staff.

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.
