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.

Traveling from Taranaki back to Katikati.BOP. today we stopped at Bosco for a coffee at 3pm only to be told coffee was not available as they had already started cleaning the machine.Offered food,but not much good without coffee. Disapointing as 3pm seems a reasonable time to have coffee,there must be plenty of travellers wanting to stop for afternoon coffee as... More

Definitely worth stopping. BLT was delicious, and nachos as well. Caramel slice and carrot cake finished our meal beautifully.

This looked like a good stop on the way to Auckland from New Plymouth. Plenty of parking, good restrooms and a good breakfast. I had hot cakes with Bacon. It came in a short time and was good. They have good coffee!

We'd seen the good and bad reviews here but it was a convenient place to grab a coffee before moving on. We enjoyed what we had including a bit of free wifi.

We've visited Bosco many times on our way to the Mountain and love our visit each time. The biggest problem is deciding what to have! The Venison Pie is my go-to on a rainy day, not surprising it won a 'highly commended' at the National Pie Awards. My gluten-free kids actually get to chose from several menu and cabinet options,...

Dropped in after our trip to the Waitomo Caves for a quick lunch. Great selection available - does not make for quick decisions. Nachos were enjoyed by my partner & daughter. The eggs were cooked beautifully for the Eggs Benedict. Great coffee - I would most certainly visit again.

Sadly I was disappointed in the quality and quantity of food on display in the cabinets. No sandwiches or savouries etc. These are the staples of the New Zealand travelling public, a quick bite to eat is what the majority of travellers need. I actually had to ask for hot water to add to my long black coffee served in... More
