The Asian noodle dish was excellent, as were the scallops. Six of us ate five different meals, and all were very good. Service was very good, prompt, and friendly. They were, like all Disney venues, insanely busy, with each table filled almost instantly when a party left it. That leads to very well-managed and great routines, but can make it... More

Service: We had a reservation for brunch at 10:45, and the restaurant was practically empty. Service was friendly and fast since there weren't many other people eating at that time. I think this restaurant gets busy earlier since many people staying at the Polynesian are visiting the theme parks, so if you don't mind a later breakfast, I would suggest... More

To just say we loved Kona' Cafe would be an understatement. We ate there for our very first Disney lunch and it was amazing. Sticky Wings, Pot Stickers, Banana Chocolate Brulee, Pan Asian Noodles and the list goes on... there wasn't anything we didn't enjoy at lunch and had incredible service!!! Dinner wasn't a disappointment either. The sushi appetizers were... More

This is a lively little sit down. Took my son for breakfast, total with tips and drink was $30, about what we'd pay at a Cracker Barrel. I'm used to Disney costing an arm and a leg, so as a logical, it's nice to know I'll have a spot to visit more often. Delicious food! My son's Tonga toast was... More

We only ordered "to-go" from Kona Café, so my review is a little limited. The sushi and kids meals we ordered were great and we enjoyed them pool side near our room while the kids swam. Much easier for us this way than corralling the kids to sit thru another meal!!

We booked a lunch for noon on July 4th and when we arrived at the Kona Cafe we were perplexed that we were handed a pager given that there were two to four tables seated in the restaurant. Even more confusing was the fact that we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. No kidding! The restaurant was mostly... More

From the fruit to the french toast, our experience was awesome. You have to try the French Press Coffee. Pricey, but worth it.

Kona is our favorite breakfast spot in Disney! On our most recent trip, I had the pulled pork hash and let's just say that my husband(who had the tonga toast) was having some major "plate envy" over my breakfast. Prices are great and the Kona press pot coffee is the best coffee you will find at Disney. We've only eaten... More

Great breakfast place with out having to do the characters breakfast. Great Coffee, plus they have a coffee bar right there that you could order your latte's and americano's.

Visited here in May 2014 and were seated on time in a comfy two seater booth. Before being seated, a host showed us to the front of the restaurant where the chefs had already produced an example of each meal. Was handy for me and my other half as some of the meals were not what we were used to.... More
