The Cafe has sandwiches and burgers that make it a good place for lunch. Lots of seating and the lines were not that long.

Along with the average zoo the Crocodile Cafe didn't offer much in terms of food offerings. The food is mostly frozen and reheated and greasy. We ordered a macaroni kids' meal and the macaroni was microwave quality, the drink was sugary juice and a package...More
