Kona Cafe is my favorite breakfast place when visiting Walt Disney World. Located across from the Magic Kingdom theme park, it is easily accessible by monorail, boat, or car. Kona Cafe is probably best known for their Tonga Toast, a banana-stuffed sourdough french toast rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with a strawberry compote. Yum! Now that I have your attention let’s talk breakfast. Kona Cafe offers lunch and dinner options, but breakfast is really what they do best. During this visit we ordered a variety of items and shared. The portions are not huge so if you go with a large appetite I would recommend that you order one dish per person to share. The breakfast menu consists of various island flavors. The Liliko’i Juice Is fantastic. It is a subtle and sweet blend of orange, passion fruit, and guava juice. Guava and passion fruit complement each other so well and have the ability to transport you back to Hawaii. The Macadamia-Pineapple Pancakes are served with a delicious macadamia nut butter and pineapple sauce. The Tonga Toast is amazing, but it’s the strawberry compote that really takes it to the next level. It tastes almost like a strawberry smoothie. When you taste it, you’ll want to just drink it up. 😉 Check out this recipe from the official Disney blog if you want to try to make your own: Tonga Toast. Here are some photos from the trip. Enjoy!
Here’s an insider tip: If you don’t have time to have a sit down breakfast or don’t want to spend that much money, checkout Capt. Cook, a casual quick service cafe located downstairs at the Polynesian Resort. While they may not have all of the same breakfast offerings as Kona, they do offer the Tonga Toast at a cheaper price, which is definitely worth a try!
