Another vote for Kona. Egg fix can be covered with Samoan (pulled pork eggs benedict), while pancake/french toast are can be covered with tonga toast or pineapple macadamia nut pancakes.

If going buffet. Boma and Cape May are our favorites.

You guys sound like my fiance and I, and we love Tusker House. Very cool atmosphere, and lots of eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries for him and french toast and donuts for me

Kona, BOMA and Tusker House are my three favorite breakfast places in the World.

My 2 favorite breakfasts on property are Boma and the Wave. At Boma, I love the grilled tomatoes and the chocolate pastries, plus the mixed fruit juice is delish. At the Wave, we loved the sweet potato pancakes, and my husband loved the key lime eggs benedict. Everything was fresh and good, and it was such a respite from the typical Disney frenzy.

We have done Cape May and it is a good character buffet, but not a culinary revelation.

We have done Crystal Palace buffet too, and while there are more interesting items there, its wild popularity makes it a bit frenzied for my taste.

We have done Whispering Canyon ... it's good, if standard.

We did Kona once, and were soundly unimpressed. No one ordered the Tonga Toast so maybe that was the problem, but my omelet, toast and potatoes were just not very good.

This trip, we're trying the Captain's Grill, and I've read a lot of good reviews - sounds like they have some unique items on the menu and the buffet.

Thanks guys! All these responses are fantastic and giving us a ton of food for thought. (Pun intended) Anymore opinions would be great. It's interesting to hear all the mixed reviews for Kona Cafe, but I suppose everyone's tastes differ.

Tusker House

My wife and I love Tusker House breakfast better than any meal. It's now a tradition to get an early ADR before AK opens, preferably 8am, and we are usually done and ready for rides as if we were there for rope drop.

The jungle juice is excellent there and our DS6 loves Donald Duck, so it's a great time to meet him and usually most of the Fab 5 characters.

Kona is good, but their menu contains a bit more unusual items (I like the macadamia nut pancakes and my sister's a big fan of the Tonga toast). If you're looking for something more classic, check out the Grand Floridian Cafe. The french toast there is really good! I think it was vanilla infused. I like Cape May if you want a character meal, some of the items on the buffet are delicious.

Top two would definitely be Boma and Kona breakfasts. The juice at Boma is the best and Kona's coffee is always on point!
