My info is that this is a fairly new restaurant. It was recommended to us for breakfast n we were not disappointed...fresh coffee, very good overstuffed fluffy omelets, and butter for the toast, not fake butter. For being off season both the waitress n owner were attentive to us.

We went to the Zookeeper Bistro just to try the Caramel Apple French Toast for breakfast. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. You basically get two slices of white bread - made in to nothing special French Toast with a few chunks of raw apple. I was expecting at least a side of cooked apples. The price was $7.95 for this, which was outrageous for what you got. I would suggest they up the ante on this dish; maybe use some high class breads, such as Sour Dough, wheatberry, etc. add some cooked apples, more caramel syrup, and some whip cream. They did advertise a breakfast special for $5.95 from 8-10AM, which is probably a good deal. Think you got eggs, meat, breakfast potatoes, bread, and coffee. They would not let us order it at this price, since we arrived at 10:30AM. The restaurant itself is very cute.

I really enjoyed eating at Zookeepers!

I called beforehand to ensure we were able to get lunch items on Sunday. Tonya, one of the proprieters, went over all of the lunch items they had.

Once we arrived, we were told it would be a few minuites before they had a table cleaned. We were seated and our order was taken promptly.

The "mountain time zone" kicked in after our order was taken and it took 30-40 min. to bring the food out. I had read the reviews so I was ready for the wait...

As far as the staff... the waitress was only around to take our order and bring the food to the table. There were two other ladies that refilled the drinks and took care of the guests so all were taken care of.

90% of the guests were older couples who seem to be regulars. They recieved excellent service as well.

As long as you have the time to stop and enjoy, this is a good place to go!

We found out they cater and do private parties. We rented the entire restaurant out for a suprise private birthday party. The food was fantastic and service was great especially when you take into fact we had 13 kids under 10 years old. Everyone had a good time. The owners worked with us on decorations and everything. They even got a young lad to play happy birthday on the fiddle!!!
