Grab-and-Go Snacks on the Wildlife Trail!

While you're out wandering the Wildlife Trail, don't forget to stop by our conveniently located concession stands.  If your plans for the day include a picnic, it will be hard to resist the smell of our grilled hotdogs and sausages, located near the birds in the picnic area.  Should the heat get you down, cool off with gourmet ice cream or slushies at our stand by Primate Park or Dippin' Dots, available across from the swan pond.  Most of our concession stands offer ice cream and popsicles, so be sure to enjoy a tasty treat!

Enjoy lunch or a snack at the Jungle Café!

Hours: 10:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.


Little zoo visitors will rave about the chicken nuggets, parents will crave the salads, and everyone will have to try some of the fries! The Jungle Café is convenient, delicious and full of choices. Both outdoor and indoor eating areas are available.

In keeping with the zoo’s commitment to conservation, healthy living and environmental enrichment, the café offers Seattle’s Best Organic Coffees and prepares its fried foods in a zero Trans fat oil.

Seattle’s Best Organic Coffees are made from coffee beans that have been grown under strict standards and are pesticide and herbicide free. These conditions in which the beans are grown help to protect natural habitats and preserve water quality. Seattle’s Best is also Fair Trade Certified, ensuring that the farmers who grow the coffee beans are paid a fair price. It is a wonderful and responsible addition to our beverage menu which includes juices, soft drinks, hot chocolate and milk.

FRY-ON…ZTF (zero Trans fat) is a unique blend of healthy canola and corn oils that combine to create a delicious and clean taste. Cooking oils high in fat have been linked to cardiovascular disease and possibly cancer. This healthier alternative allows zoo visitors to enjoy flavorful fried foods without the risks that go along with most cooking oils.

The Jungle Café is a convenient way to extend your zoo visit and has something for everyone. Selections include salads, hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken, sandwiches, soups and ice cream.
