We didn’t plan on eating at the park originally, but timing led us to give the cafe a try. We were nervous that there would be high prices or bad food, but we found the opposite - fair prices and beautifully cooked food. Best of...More

The overlook cafe was a nice stop along our journey through fossil rim. Prices are a tad high but the money is used toward the animals housed here so I feel it was worth it. The view is spectacular!

Menu is what you would expect, but tastes even better when taking in the dramatic views of the park. Perfect place to enjoy a break and feed yourself after feeding all of the animals.
