Picture this- you arrive at the zoo right when it opens, your kids are screaming with excitement, and you know it’s about to be a long day. What is the one thing you need more than anything? COFFEE! Well, look no further because this summer the Memphis Zoo has opened our very own coffee shop called Ancient Grounds!
Ancient Grounds is a nod to our Egyptian ties and love for coffee. When you walk in you will be transported across the globe to a Moroccan treehouse through the tribal influence and natural elements surrounding you. Ancient Grounds features signature drinks as well as classic coffee and tea options. There are a variety of food options from biscuits, sweet treats, and bagels to house salads and fruit cones. This will definitely be your first stop when you walk into the zoo! The coffee shop is located at the front entrance of the zoo across from the main gift shop. It will be open daily from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. Come find your new favorite drink at Ancient Grounds!
