For today’s Saturday Review article we are visiting one of the most popular breakfast spots at Disney World, Kona Cafe, at the Polynesian Village Resort. We were seated rather quickly once we checked in and were greeted by our server who quickly had our table filled with coffee, milk, and water. The service was adequate during the meal, although not something that was extremely memorable to us.
We ordered two main entrees, the infamous Tonga Toast and the Big Kahuna. First, the tonga toast was fantastic. It was cooked very well and the filling was divine. The strawberry compote that accompanies this dish had mixed reviews. I loved it and thought it was a fantastic addition to the banana flavor of the tost. My wife on the other hand was not a huge fan of the compote saying it had too strong of a flavor for her. She used regular maple syrup and loved it on her part of the Tonga Toast.
The Big Kahuna, just as it sounds, provides a large quantity and selection of items. The Pineapple Macadamia Nut Pancakes were what I really wanted to try and they did not disappoint. I felt the amount of pineapple on the top was a little over the top as I just like a little bit with each bite, but overall it is a really nice dish. The potatoes that come with this dish were cooked perfectly and had great flavor. Finally, the different meats on the plate were also cooked well and tasted to be of good quality.
We also decided on the Donald’s Breakfast kids meal for the little one in the family and he loved it. He seemed to really enjoy the eggs and he ended up eating almost all of the cinnamon toast.
I will also say the coffee was excellent, although I did not splurge for the press pot as my wife is not much of the coffee drinker. As you can see in the first picture above she is more of a cream drinker! Overall, we loved our first ever breakfast at Kona Cafe and will definitely be back.
