Kona Cafe, located in the Polynesian Resort, is a full service eatery offering breakfast. lunch, and dinner. It's been a favorite of ours for many seasons, both because of it's convenient location to the Magic Kingdom ( a Monorail ride away) and it's Hawaii inspired cuisine. Every meal begins with a stroll by the dessert display.. where Lilo and Stitch (done in chocolate) greet you with a wave and a smile.Here's a closer look:
First up to the table - Pineapple Bread with Macadamia Nut Honey Butter
Alway, Alan starts his meal with the Pot Stickers
The salad is fresh, and the greens are "spring"
For an entree, we got the Shrimp and Scallops plate. I like the simplicity that let the natural flavors take center stage
with a choice of dipping sauces. The scallops were cooked perfectly!
As usual, we ordered the sans sugar dessert option - Apple Stack. It was a delightful combination of apples, ice cream, fried wontons, and cinnamon sauce, and the no sugar added dessert is right on the menu.. How cool is that?!
We YUMMMMMMMMED ourselves through the meal and out the door. Between the giggles and the yumming, we were quite a delightful sound effect This meal, with beverages, ran about $20 per person. OLP gives Kona Cafe 2 thumbs up!

We went to Kona Cafe for dinner and for a breakfast on our recent Dec 2010 vacation, and both times it was wonderful. As luck would have it, both kids were out cold asleep in the stroller during dinner so it was like being on a date. My husband had the pork chop and I had the teriyaki steak and both were excellent. We had planned to let the kids get a Kona Cone for dessert but since they were still asleep, we got one banana chocolate creme brulee and one Kiluaha torte (i think it was called, chocolate cakey outside with warm chocolate inside, vanilla ice cream on the side)-and the creme brulee won. Our server was wonderful too. A yummy dinner!
A few days later we went for breakfast-and it was a treat (even with the kids awake!) Husband got the Tonga toast, I got the big Kahuna for a sampler of the macadamia nut pancakes plus a little of everything to share with the kids, and Miss Avery got the Mickey pan
We recently returned to Kona Cafe for Lunch with a couple of old friends. We actually hadn't been here in quite a while so I was curious to see what its like now. Once this was my favorite restaurant and it is still a great place to get lunch, but it has lost its favorite status.
I started out with the Potstickers (which are made "no sugar added", always a plus for us!) which were quite nice, the creamy asian sauce is especially tasty. I followed that up with the Kona Angus Chuck Cheeseburger. This had all the makings of a good burger, but I was a bit disappointed that the burger was overcooked and therefore tough, dry, and chewy... I prefer my Angus burger to be juicy, seared on the outside and tender on the inside. The fries are very nice homemade fries and I heard rave reviews of the homemade potato chips on our friend's plate. The chicken with Mango sauce got rave reviews fr
This was my families first time at the Kona Cafe. We love the ambience of the Polynesian so we thought we would try something different. Glad we did; we found somewhere to keep coming back too. I had the bbq pork sandwich on a kaiser roll with slaw on the side. Let me tell you this sandwich did not disappoint. It was full of flavor and satisfying. My sister and husband had a flatbread pizza. My sister's was canadian bacon and pineapple she gave it a two thumbs up and my husband and little boy had pepperoni flatbread it was very tasty. And for dessert we had the dole pineapple whip I am not a fan but my sister is although she LOVES pineapple. This is a good place to experience. If at all possible, eat outside it adds to the island feeling atmosphere.
I have been to Disney World countless times and the Kona Café is one of my favorite spots for breakfast by far. I highly recommend the Pineapple Macadamia Nut Pancakes. It’s three pancakes topped with crushed pineapple and a dollop of macadamia nut butter.
