We were very hungry after exploring the zoo for hours - I thought about leaving to find fast food, but realized the convenience of eating here was worth paying a little more so that we could take time to look through the conservatory. We had...More

This was a great place to stop and refuel in between the zoo and the gardens. We had burgers and hot dogs. Everything was very good. I would recommend this place if you didn't pack a picnic lunch to enjoy. I love that they are...More

Normally when I go to Como Zoo, I bring a picnic/bag lunch. The times I haven’t, I’ve eaten at Zobota Cafe. It’s a nice alternative to the other junk food around the zoo when you’re looking for food. The food isn’t anything impressive and you...More

We split the fruit cup and the fish and chips. We are both light eaters and had plenty! It was a beautiful day so dined outside.

Love the upscale cafe, but I ordered 3 small bottle of water, a single order of fries, and a bag of goldfish crackers and paid $18.00. Can't say much about the rest of the food yet.

My wife and I stopped here for a quick bite to eat before touring the zoo. The menu is quite large and offers a lot of intriguing choices. Unfortunately, our choices of pad Thai and the chicken sandwich were both mediocre and overpriced. I don't...More

My husband & I grabbed lunch while we visited Como Zoo and the first thing we noticed was the atypical menu. We expected standard "zoo cafeteria" fare, but Zobota had Pad Thai and sandwiches with aioli. It sounded good, but it really wasn't. The Pad...More

Ordered the vegetable Pad Thai. A few noodles and invisible vegetables at the bottom of a plastic tray. My partner ordered cup of chili and the Hickory cheeseburger which was so-so and came with cold fries. No refills on fountain pop. Cost? $27.40

Nice place to have a snack or lunch when going to the zoo at Como Park. Reasonable prices and both indoor and outdoor seating.
