Best Breakfast on Property?

So my DGF and I are going to be in Disney from 9/24-10/1 this year, and won't be doing too many ADR's because we're going to be enjoying F&W for most of our days. (Never been to F&W before, but we are both insanely excited to be able to go this year) That being said, we do have our four favorite meals for dinner all set. We will be doing Jiko for my birthday, Rose and Crown, Il Mulino and California Grill. However, we would love to do one or maybe two really good breakfasts. We have done Chef Mickey's before and thought it was awesome for the kiddos in the group, but thought the food was mediocre at best so we wouldn't be looking to return there, but are there any can't miss breakfasts? Heard good things about Boma buffet and GFC. I know I can look at the menus and all, but I'd love some first hand experiences/opinions! Any thoughts or suggestions for us? THANKS!!

I recommend Kona Cafe for breakfast. It is a must do for us every trip.

I've got to say Kona also. The best food anywhere IMO.

Thanks guys! I should've mentioned that I'm very much an eggs and potatoes kind of guy while my DGF is very much into the pancakes/french toast/sweets kind of breakfast. I don't know if that changes anyones thoughts. Thanks again!

Kona is really good, but we love the Boma buffet. I might have added the CP pre opening breakfast too, but I just can't handle characters before I've had my caffeine fix in the morning.

We LOVE Boma for breakfast, it is truly exceptional! Also GFC for the atmosphere and the eggs Benedict!! In the parks, a pre park opening Crystal Palace breakfast is something special and the food first thing in the morning is VERY good. It is pure Disney magic to walk down main street before the park is open! Along the same lines is a pre park opening for Tusker House, it is also very good but we prefer CP.
Kona, eh... We have shared the Big Kahuna a few times and it is average. Nothing special. The Tonga toast IS something special but know that you can get it for 1/2 the cost in the Polys quick service, Captain Cooks. It will not have the strawberry compote, up to you if that is worth double the price.

Kouzzina has great breakfasts! When it closes on the last day of September, many of their entrees will be served at Flying Fish beginning on October 1st.

Boma is our favorite by far! It's become a last day tradition. Since we fly and thus, don't know when/if we'll be fed again, we always go to Boma and stuff ourselves silly before leaving for the airport. Pecan Praline bread pudding-Mmmmm!

Captain's Grill is great because you can choose a buffet or order off the menu. They have delicious bread pudding.

Kona has Tonga Toast, which my french toast loving husband absolutely loves.

We were staying at the beach Club last month so we had our last day breakfast at the Captain's Grille in the Yacht Club. It was terrific! I had the lobster omelet with a side of grits and my boyfriend had the Eggs Benedict with a side of turkey sausage. We washed everything down with Bloody Marys and Mimosas! We are definitely going back in September when we're staying at the Boardwalk Inn.

In November are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge so we are anxious to try the Boma breakfast buffet on our departure day.

Kona Cafe, even if just for the Kona Press pot coffee.
