Visitors to the Cape May County Park & Zoo are going to have enhanced dining options at the new Safari Café. The Grand Opening Celebration of the new Safari Café will be taking place on June 10 at 11 A.M.
The Cape May County Board of County Commissioners invites the public to the ceremony that will include a ribbon cutting, music, face painter, and special guests. Visitors are welcome to tour the new building and sample the new menu. Come enjoy all the Zoo has to offer on this special day as Cape May County celebrates the beautiful new restaurant inside the Zoo.
“We are so excited to have the community come out to see the new Safari Café during a day that will be fun for the whole family,” said Cape May County Commissioner E. Marie Hayes, liaison to the Cape May County Zoo. “We continue to work on bringing new additions to the Zoo, which is one of the reasons the Cape May County Zoo continues to be ranked as one of the best in the Country. Our entire Zoo team does a terrific job, and I am proud to work with them on projects like this one.”
The improved Safari Café will include an inside sit-down facility, which will be air conditioned for the summer and provide a heated space on colder days. The Café will feature 50 seats indoor and 250 seats outdoor. The menu will include plenty of healthy options, more ice cream novelties, and high-quality sandwiches. Proceeds from the Safari Café benefit the Zoo.
The site of the existing Café will now be called the Safari Express and remain a takeout window with lots of options outside the Zoo in the courtyard. The new restaurant will then take the name of Safari Café and visitors will need to enter the Zoo in order to enjoy the refreshments there.
The Cape May County Zoo is open daily from 10 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. for 364 days a year. It is located at 707 Route 9 North in Cape May Court House. Find out more about the Zoo at cmczoo.com.
