Enjoy: Tonga Toast for breakfast at Kona Cafe

Tonga Toast: it was the primary reason we experienced that rarest (for our family) of Walt Disney World vacation meals, the table-service breakfast. In fact – and I’m sheepish to admit this – it was the only resemblance of a breakfast we had that entire trip. I’m still surprised my husband and kids weren’t rioting by the last day. Maybe they were still trying to digest that dense beast that was the Kona Café’s Tonga Toast?

This is definitely a breakfast to split. And be prepared for a sugar rush! Two thick slices of sourdough bread are battered, fried, rolled in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, and sandwiched together with bananas. The dish comes with a strawberry compote, a side of meat and a wedge of pineapple. Contrary to what the photo might suggest, our two-year-old was not alone in devouring this Kona Café legend – she had a tableful of help. I paired my portion with the Kona blend coffee (I passed on the 100% Kona Coffee French Press Pot because I’m the only coffee drinker in the family, though I hear it’s one of the best cups of joe in Walt Disney World).

With our abysmal Walt Disney World breakfast track record, what are the chances we’ll find ourselves again at Kona Café any time soon?

Location: Kona Cafe can be found on the second floor of the Polynesian Resort’s Great Ceremonial House, Walt Disney World Resort.

Touring Tip: Kona Cafe does brisk breakfast business so you’ll want to book an Advanced Dining Reservation as soon as possible.
