Visiting early? Begin your day in Bembe Kitchen for a freshly prepared sausage and bacon breakfast bagel. If you’re feeling really hungry, try our delicious breakfast baguettes available until 11am every day.
Join us for lunch and enjoy a range of fresh, homemade meals from warming pies to a hearty lasagne. If you fancy something lighter we have a great selection of freshly prepared baguettes and paninis served all day with a locally sourced side salad. We also have a great selection for our younger guests to enjoy.
Fancy a treat?
We offer a wide selection of cakes and desserts from our fully stocked cake table within Bembe Kitchen or warm sugary donuts from our outside ‘Bembe Snacks’ bar.
Where can you find us?
Our Bembe Coffee Shop can be accessed just before the entrance gates, which makes it perfect for a lunchtime with a view! No time to visit the zoo? You can still visit Bembe Kitchen to enjoy a few of the sights without fully entering the zoo: sit back and watch the elephants and rhinos rumble past, whilst enjoying our barista-crafted coffee, freshly made cakes and deliciously light snacks.
