This week WDW Mouse Tales visits the Kona Cafe at the Polynesian Resort of Walt Disney
World. The official Disney web site describes this restaurant as a bit of Asian zest
into traditional American breakfast, lunch and dinner fare. But this week the review
is about breakfast at Kona and I am happy to report that we found this much more
delicious than the lunch offering.
First I want to give you a short video showcasing the Kona Cafe and the Kona Cafe
Coffee Shop outside the restaurant. This was my first time taking video with my new
camera so forgive me for the quality.
To start out the meal I ordered the Kona Coffee for two which really was for one
because my wife does not drink coffee. The menu says this coffee is from the most
fertile regions of Hawaii. The combination of fertile soil and mild mountain climate
produce one of the richest coffees in the world. In layman’s term this means very
strong. The beans are flown into Central Florida, where they are roasted and ground
to the perfect cup. I have to say this is a very delicious coffee, very strong but
delicious. It is served in a French Press Pot and that will pour about four cups
of coffee. This is priced at $7.49 so if there are two of you then $3.25 each, not
so bad. However you will not get a refill. You can also purchase a 50/50 blend of
Kona and Columbian for $2.69 with unlimited refills but hey you are on vacation splurge
My wife decided to order the Macadamia-Pineapple Pancakes with Macadamia Nut Butter,
Pineapple Sauce, and your choice of Ham, Bacon, or Sausage and priced at $9.99. The
pancakes were so delicious my wife refused to use any of the syrup provided to ruin
these perfect pancakes. The Macadamia Nut Butter really puts these over the top.
The only thing I would recommend is to try either the sausage or the ham because
the bacon on her plate and mine were really pitiful but really a side item to the
delicious main portion.
I ordered the featured breakfast which is the Tonga Toast which is described as Banana-stuffed
Sourdough French Toast rolled in Cinnamon Sugar and served with a Strawberry Compote
and your choice of Ham, Bacon, or Sausage. From the perfectly ripe Bananas to the
sweet perfectly skillet cooked French Toast this was excellent down to the last bite.
It is served with a Strawberry Compote which is perfectly ripe strawberries blended
up into almost a syrup. I had the same complaint about the buffet style bacon but
again this was not enough to bring down an overall excellent dish.
So my basic advice is this if you are staying at the Polynesian or on property with
Disney and easy access to the Polynesian this breakfast is not to be missed. I have
to say thanks to the folks on the message boards who recommended this breakfast more
frequently than any other at Disney World.
