Snap! Disney sent me the recipe but I'm sure they left a vital ingredient out!!! The bin was well fed that day!

Kona Cafe

Kona Cafe (Breakfast)

We'd already eaten here for dinner last year, and loved it - breakfast sounded really nice, so we thought we'd give it a try on our first morning in the World. Set us up for the day! We figured we'd be up early anyway, so we went for an early breakfast - turns out we just missed the first bus to MK by about 5mins and had to wait AGES for the next. We were very late for our ADR, but the CMs were really nice and seated us quickly with no problems as the restaurant was fairly quiet.


Els at Kona Cafe

For drinks, I got the Lilikoi Juice (Passion fruit, orange and guava blend) as I love tropical juice, and Els got the Kona Blend Coffee. I thought it would come in a french press, but I guess you have to pay extra for that.




Drinks

The Lilikoi was really good and tasted very fresh. I would get addicted to this over the course of the vacation!

For mains, we both went for the Big Kahuna: French toast, Macadamia-Pineapple pancakes, eggs your way, home fried potatoes, ham, bacon, and sausage - it was excellent! We were both starving at this point, what with travelling and the time difference and it really hit the spot!

I got my eggs scrambled with cheese, and Els got his sunny side up:

My Plate


Els' Plate

The pancakes were to die for, they were so, so good! Someone recommended I try the eggs like this, and they were awesome (anything laden with cheese is good in my book!). I loved the breakfast potatoes and the sausage was lovely - I'm not a big sausage person! Bacon and ham, again, very good - I ate a piece of french toast without realising there was cinnamon on it! D'oh! I hate cinnamon and could really taste it on the next piece, so that was the only bad point for me... but that's nothing to do with Kona.




Licked our plates clean!

H RATING: 9.5/10
E RATING: 9/10
WOULD WE EAT HERE AGAIN? Yes, and Yes! We're also planning on eating here for our 'Newlyweds Breakfast', the morning after our wedding!

I believe you have to order 100% Kona coffee, not the blend, for it to come in the press pot.

Just had to say that your review of WCC made me decide to go there when DM and I went to Disney last May. It was a blast we had a super fun server, it took DM a bit to get used to him throwing stuff at us but she got into the spirit very quickly.
I plan on going to Kona's this trip for breakfast, I want to try the Tonga Toast.
