The Overlook

The Elephants Can't Have All the Fun this Summer!

We have another surprise up our sleeves, and this one’s created especially for the grown-ups!

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is building a new alfresco patio café geared toward upscale bistro food and drink. The Overlook is designed to give you a unique alternative for lunch or drinks at the Zoo, and will be the first time craft beer and featured wines will be offered to the public. The space will feature counter ordering with food and drinks delivered right to your table.


Summer - daily April 1 - last weekend in October, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. (weather permitting)
Winter: - closed November - March, but look for special openings on nice weekends!
Spring: - open daily for Spring Break only (weather permitting)


The Overlook is located near the middle of the Zoo, diagonally across the sidewalk from the Grizzly Grill, overlooking the Rocky Mountain goats and all of Colorado Springs.


Below are some examples of what you might find on the daily chef-inspired chalkboard menu:

  • Mountain Pub
  • Flatbread Pizza
  • Gourmet Sandwiches and Salads
  • Chef-inspired Specials
  • Decadent Desserts
