Breakfast was good.

This is a small restaurant located inside the Poly on the 2nd floor above the lobby. We had reservations. We were given a buzzer & waited about 10 minutes before we were seated. The menu is pretty basic with a few specialties. My teenage daughter had the Conga toast. Whoa, is that fattening but... read more

I'd never been to the Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World before, so I thought the Kona Cafe would be a great place to try. And it was! The restaurant is crowded and busy most of time time, but the food is pretty good. They have sushi and appetizers, as well as entrees and dessert. We made a reservation and... More

We have eaten breakfast at Kona Cafe on several occasions. We love the open space of the restaurant and absolutely love the breakfast menus. My favorite is the Tonga Toast and my sister and niece love the Macadamia-Pineapple pancakes. Top it off with a French-press pot of Kona coffee and the tasty Liliko'i Juice (Orange, Passion Fruit, and Guava blend)

Yum! Order the Pot-stickers, they are delicious! We ate there for breakfast and lunch while we were on vacation in Disney, even if you are not staying at the Polynesian, you can take the resort monorail over to the resort and quickly get to the restaurant. The food is delicious and the service is Disney!

While staying at Shades of Green, my family decided to try the Kona Café at the Polynesian hotel in Walt Disney World for Breakfast. It was delicious and prices for Disney are really great! My husband had the banana filled French toast, I had the macadamia/pineapple pancakes and my children LOVED their French toast and eggs. Service was excellent. I... More

I visited Kona with my husband and our three young children. We had reservations. We were given a pager which notified us when our table was ready. We didn't have to wait very long. We ordered two sushi rolls as our starter. They were wonderful!!! I highly recommend their sushi. Our server brought us bread, which the kids ate. They... More

We loaded up with appetizers and it was a good idea. They were super and fun. The service was slower than we thought it should be and the waitress forgot my salad entree but that was a minor issue
