Kona Café (Orlando, FL)

My last stop on my Florida roadtrip was my return to Orlando. Here, of course, I decided to try out another Disney Hotel restaurant for breakfast. I chose the Kona Café at the Polynesian Village Resort. This resort demonstrates the spirit of the South Pacific with tropical palms and lush vegetation. I had been at this Resort Hotel before with my friend for a quick nighttime stop for fireworks and a drink at Trader Sam's Grog Grotto.

At the Kona Café

The Kona Café is located on the second floor of the Grand Ceremonial House at the Polynesian Village Resort. It is an open casual table service restaurant with view of the atrium. It serves American dishes with an Asian twist and also offers an open sushi station for lunch and dinner. 

What I ordered:

  • Mimosa Flight - three mimosas, one with Liliko'i Juice (blend of orange, passion fruit and guave juice), one with pink grapefruit juice, and one with pineapple juice
  • Seven Seas Samoan - Poached eggs with a citrus sauce hollondaise on turkey and pulled pork hash with mustard greens and tomatoes tossed in a citrus vinaigrette

Other famous Kona Café dishes: 

  • Tonga Toast - the legendary large banana stuffed french toast with a cinnamon sugar crust and strawberry compote
  • Loco Moco - a tower of rice with a hamburger patty, chorizo gravy, eggs and tomato salsa
  • Polynesian Egg Platter - traditional platter with eggs, potatoes, a choice of meat and with a Mickey shaped coconut macademia nut muffin
  • Macademia Nut Pancake - with a macademia nut butter and pineapple sauce


Runny Eggs in Florida :)

The Kona Café offers with their Seven Seas Samoan a special and interesting version of eggs benedicts/ runny eggs. The mix of pulled pork and turkey in the hash was great. Surprisingly, the dish did not seem to heavy despite the meat, the citrus hollondaise and the greens tossed in a citrus vinaigrette really lightened the dish up.

This was a nice continuation to my previous experiences during my Florida road trip. I do love my runny eggs!
