    We have a ressie at Kona Cafe for breakfast in a few weeks on our beach day. I have always wanted to go to Kona for the Tonga Toast. Then I read about the Pineapple Macademia Nut pancakes and many people saying Tonga Toast is too rich and greasy.

    What are your thoughts. I'm not sure - both sound delicious, but it was the Tonga Toast that originally made me want to go.

    Thanks in advance.

    I haven't been there yet (but have a ressie for December). DH is going to order the Tonga Toast and I will have the Pineapple Macadamia Pancakes. We'll get the best of both worlds, lol.

    I've never had the Tonga Toast before (don't like bananas), but the Pineapple Macademia Nut pancakes are to die for! :cloud9:

    The tonga toast is out of this world, DH orders it every time we go..I sneak in a few bites. It has never been greasy or mushy...perfect every time.

    I always order the eggs benedict..god they are so good. Every time I go I want to order the macadamian pancakes but change my mind at the last minute. DH says next time we will order them, tonga toast and the eggs benny...I said we will be like pigs! He said who cares we are on vacation and eat more than that at the CP breakfast!!!

    I have tried both. My favorite is the pineapple macadamia nut pancakes with macadamia nut butter.

    I LOVE the pineapple macadamia pancakes!! :love: I was going to suggest what someone else already suggested; order both and share with someone. Out of the two, I prefer the pancakes.

    Here are pictures of both, including a picture of the INSIDE of Tonga Toast. lol

    I prefer the Tonga Toast.

    We've ordered both and shared....the Tonga Toast won out in the head to head for us.

    We don't find "The Toast" to be greasy, but it is VERY rich, and VERY sweet.....making it a bit on the "heavy" side. But man, it's SOOOOOOOO good....and considering we always get it on an MK day....we walk that "heavy" feeling away pretty quickly.

    Comes with it (along with a HUGE glob of butter).

    I've tried it with and without but it doesn't (IMHO) need it.

    You don't need syrup; it comes with macadamia nut butter.

    We eat breakfast at Kona Cafe at least once every trip.

    Press pot of 100% Kona coffee and tonga toast is what I order every time. :)

    Okay, I am not a breakfast person and I want them both. Since I am traveling alone I will have to order them both and see if the people at the next table want to share.:)
