Breakfast: Polynesian-themed menu items like the Tonga toast and macadamia-pineapple pancakes are enough to warrant the Kona Café's mention when it comes to breakfast at Disney – or in the Orlando metro – but coffee lovers, too, will certainly appreciate the estate-grown Kona brew, particularly if they've had a late night. This venue, ensconced amid the splendor of Disney's Polynesian Resort, wins high marks for its breakfast and offers all the basic, American classics along with Hawaiian spins on its signature offerings. The Tonga toast – banana-stuffed sourdough "French toast" that's rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with strawberry compote – is arguably its most famous. Or infamous. Depending on your frame of mind.
Walt Disney World ®'s Best Steaks: The relaxed Polynesian vibe of the Kona Café permeates the ambiance at all three squares, leaving few dishes untouched – including its decidedly untraditional teriyaki-style New York strip. Pineapple glaze and sticky rice turn an old boys' club offering into something sweet, savory and entirely inventive. It's a surprising favorite among regular visitors, of which the Kona has many. In fact, some of them show up for breakfast, lunch and dinner despite Disney's myriad choices. (Some of its breakfast offerings could easily do double-duty on the dessert menu!) For fans of poultry, seafood and vegetables, there are options a'plenty, making the Kona Café a versatile choice.
Local Expert A.D. Thompson Says:
Breakfast: "Those Hidden Mickeys are EVERYWHERE at Disney. Including the Kona Cafe. Try and spot one amid your breakfasting."
Walt Disney World ®'s Best Steaks: "Dessert show! Kona Cafe's onstage pastry kitchen allows you to watch your sweet treat come together before you tear it apart."
Best for Breakfast Because: Disney serves quality breakfast throughout its Kingdom, but Kona Cafe's perfect island vibe – and potent Kona coffee – win it a place on the list.
Best for Walt Disney World ®'s Best Steaks Because: The Kona Cafe gives the traditional New York strip an island makeover via a teriyaki-pineapple glaze. Savory. Sweet. Unexpected.
