Countdown to 2012 WDW Marathon Weekend #45

#45 - The Polynesian's Kona Cafe

From the Walt Disney World website:
The Kona Café infuses a bit of Asian zest into traditional American breakfast, lunch and dinner fare in Disney's Polynesian Resort. Indulge in the scrumptious cinnamon and banana-stuffed Tonga Toast or choose from a variety of more savory breakfast options like a variety of egg dishes and pineapple macadamia nut pancakes.

At midday, satisfy your hunger with an Island chicken sandwich and housemade sweet potato chips, shrimp and scallops, or other tasty entrees. Dine in the evening on delicacies such as a selection of fresh fish, slow-roasted prime rib or coconut almond chicken.

As you enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this Polynesian restaurant, feast your eyes across the onstage open pastry kitchen that prepares divine desserts. Kona Café offers authentic Kona coffee as a perfect pairing to these pastries, or as a rich addition to any meal.

Why am I looking forward to the Kona Cafe?
The Kona Cafe is a fabulous restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  The menu offers quite a range of American cuisine with Asian influences for lunch and dinner.  Breakfast is full of great filling choices.  To top it all off, the restaurant is located at the Polynesian in the Great Ceremonial Hall!

I have eaten breakfast here and I have to say I certainly didn't leave hungry.  In fact, I ended up full most of the day.  A lot of people rave about the Tonga Toast - banana stuffed french toast rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with strawberry compote.  I have had this dish and it's huge and certainly not good for you in any way - although it is pretty darn tasty!  Check out the breakfast menu here.

While I haven't enjoyed lunch here, the menu has a lot of great options as well and I could easily find quite a few options to satisfy me.  Check out the lunch menu here.

Dinner at the Kona Cafe is wonderful.  Again, the dishes are quite large and there are quite a few options to satisfy pretty much anyone.  For starters the Sticky Wings are great - they are glazed wings with mustard drizzle, messy and wonderful and a huge plate to share.  I've had a couple different dinner entrees, but my favorite is the Teriyaki-style New York Strip - it's a nice steak cooked to order with a teriyaki glaze.  Check out the dinner menu here.

Of course, there is always dessert - if you can manage to eat another bite after all those lovely appetizers and entrees!  If you're so inclined, you can check out the dessert menu here.

The restaurant can get a bit loud when fully packed, but the overall ambiance is pretty nice.  There's usually a large chocolate sculpture on display - take a look if you get a chance as it's usually pretty detailed and impressive.  It's a great place to unwind with a group of family and/or friends and just have a nice meal.
