The Cafe

The Wildheart Cafe is open all year and welcomes everyone, not just visitors to the Sanctuary! On a sunny day, there aren’t many better places to sit back, relax, and savour the wares from our exceptional menu than on our terrace overlooking the natural beauty of Sandown Bay. In fact, we think it might well be the best cafe on the Isle of Wight!

During the colder months, come in and enjoy the cozy ambiance, friendly service, and unbeatable views of the sea. Our café is the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a long day, no matter the weather.

The Wildheart Cafe is the perfect place for a quick brew and a bite, or a full-on, flavour-packed meal!

Catering for a wide range of tastes, we offer a range of plant-based meal options.

We have ample car parking and also allow dogs into our cafe.

So join us for a cup of coffee, a bite to eat and a great time! See you soon!

A few of our 5* Google Reviews

What a great ethos. Eco friendly and fully vegetarian! Love it. Food was really good and portion sizes generous. We came just after the lunch rush and the clean down of tables and floors wasn’t the best. Otherwise was very good. Definitely recommend.

Highly recommend breakfast with the tigers. Got to see the lions up close, the monkeys being fed and the tigers walking around. The sausage and egg roll was also very nice. And a bonus of a hot drink or juice. 90 minutes and we got to see every animal and sit and eat our breakfast. Only £7.99 per person. Will be returning.

This is a great place and the staff are very friendly and informative. They are working on building new enclosures for more rescues and the animals they have are very well cared for. Well worth visiting. Nice cafe and gift shop as well.
