However hungry or thirsty you are, you’ll find something to satisfy you at Jersey Zoo.

Café Firefly and Café Dodo both offer a full menu, with a range of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options to please the whole family.

You have the choice of indoor, outdoor or takeaway dining, and there are picnic benches dotted around the zoo where you can sit, soak up the atmosphere and get closer to nature.
