With a mix of Portuguese cuisine and tried-and-true family favorites, there is bound to be something that satisfies all lunchtime cravings.

The Buttonwood Park Zoo is proud to welcome Two Sisters Catering to Bear’s Den Café when it reopens for the season on Saturday, April 1, 2023. Two Sisters Catering will handle the daily operations of the café, while utilizing the kitchen space to prepare dishes for their thriving catering business.

With the gorgeous woodland mural and life-sized stuffed bear, the Bear’s Den Café, operated by the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society, is known for family-friendly snack and lunch options. The café has been in operation since 2000, when the Zoo reopened after extensive renovations. The mural, which wraps around all the walls in the café, was painted by Amy Wright, a local artist from Rhode Island.

Always looking for ways to enhance the guest experience, BPZOO leadership wanted to put a new twist on the typical lunch at the Zoo and find a way to incorporate something that was unique to the South Coast.

“Guest experience is paramount to us,” said Buttonwood Park Zoological Society Executive Director Sarah Henry. “The Bear’s Den gives our guests a chance to take a break and have a quick bite during their visit. Using that space to also showcase a local business was an exciting new idea for us.”

Two Sisters Catering, known in the community for their wildly popular food truck and catering operation that specializes in Portuguese cuisine, was thrilled when BPZOO reached out to them.

“We were honored that the Zoo asked to partner with us for their upcoming busy season,” said Caitlyn Fontes, Owner and Operator of Two Sisters. “Being born and raised in this area, we have so many fond memories of the Zoo as children and now with our own children. What a cool thing to be able to do – work in a place that has been such a huge part of New Bedford for so long and give tourists the chance to try some authentic Portuguese cuisine.”-Buttonwood Park Zoo.
