Breakfast with the Animals

Due to COVID-19 precautions, these programs have been cancelled for the year.



Join Zoo Director Neil Anderson for an all-you-can-eat, made-to-order breakfast at the NEW Zoo featuring Pancakes & Penguins! Breakfast includes gourmet pancakes with real butter and maple syrup, bacon, sausages, fruit juice, and fresh coffee. Breakfast is made and served in an open-air tent in a special off-limits area within the Zoo. Meet our African penguins under the tent while enjoying breakfast, and after eating, you will enjoy a special animal habitat tour and a photo opp with the penguins. All ages are welcome and kids under 3 are FREE with an adult ticket holder. Gates open at 8:30am, and tickets to the Breakfast events include admission into the Zoo after the program ends.  Proceeds from the Breakfast with the Animals programs benefit conservation.  If you are interested in scheduling a private Breakfast with the Animals event for your group, please contact us here.

Space is limited to 20 people. The price is $29 for Zoo Pass Members and $39 for Non Zoo Pass Members. Tickets are on-sale now.  If you are not sure whether or not your Zoo Pass Membership is active, please contact us to verify before you purchase.

UPDATE: All Breakfast with the Animals programs have been cancelled for the year.  We to have the event next summer!

*Please note: children under the age of 3 are FREE with an adult ticket-holder. Anyone aged 3 and above must have a ticket.

Cancellations made prior to one week before the date of the program will be refunded 50% of the program price. Cancellations made within one week and/or “no-shows” on the day of the program will not receive a refund.
