Description: The Kona Cafe infuses a bit of Asian zest into traditional American breakfast, lunch and dinner fare in Disney's Polynesian Resort. Indulge in the scrumptious cinnamon and banana-stuffed Tonga Toast or choose from a variety of more savory breakfast options like a variety of egg dishes and pineapple macadamia nut pancakes.At midday, satisfy your hunger with an Island chicken sandwich and housemade sweet potato chips, shrimp and scallops, or other tasty entrees. Dine in the evening on delicacies such as a selection of fresh fish, grilled ginger-crusted ribeye steak or coconut almond chicken.As you enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this Polynesian restaurant, feast your eyes across the onstage open pastry kitchen that prepares divine desserts. Kona Cafe offers authentic Kona coffee as a perfect pairing to these pastries, or as a rich addition to any meal.

“Always Great and Super fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

This was our first time for lunch after eating many dinners here over the years. This is my families favorite restaurant on the Disney property, and we have tried a lot of them. The food is always solid and I always try to visit the Polynesian Hotel when I am in Orlando.

Kona coffee and Hawaiian beer are also offered here. Prices are right in line with any other Disney sit down restaurant.

“Breakfast Fantastic.. Dinner.. not so much.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

The Breakfast I rate a 5. Fantastic all around. The Tonga Toast is to die for!!
The Dinner I would rate a 3. The prices are high, and the food average.

The atmosphere is great, but both of the waiters we had were Spanish, and it was hard to understand them.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

Breakfast was fantastic. The Tonga Toast great. Great service and often easy to get a reservation at. Dinner - try the Pot Stickers - soooo good! Its also quite nice to have a dinner at Disney where you are not constantly accosted by the Characters.
