This special series brings back a guest favorite event and pairs it with a menu featuring the family favorite hazelnut spread.

Guests get exclusive access and information about animals with each intimate breakfast, limited to 100 people. This is your chance to ask questions of our curators and experience the zoo in a special way at a special time of day… mornings are one of the most active times for animals!

Both breakfasts run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and feature a one-hour program and Q&A with a zoo curator. Breakfast is vegetarian-friendly. All guests will receive a complimentary sample of Nutella® hazelnut spread.

Tickets are $50 per person. Reservations are limited. Secure your seat today!
