February 2015 Trip Reports: Kona Cafe

Kona Cafe is a table service restaurant at the Polynesian Resort Hotel at Walt Disney World. It is on the second floor and is open for lunch almost an hour later than most of the table service restaurants at Disney resorts (seating until 2:45 or so, versus closing between 2 and 5 p.m.). It's sort of an asian fusion thing: more sushi than other sushi place at the World (they must make up the California rolls and Spicy Rolls in some massive kitchen somewhere, because they all look exactly alike wherever you buy them). R. and I split the beef rolls, the poke and the pot stickers. The pot sticker sauce was very French sauce-y, not like what I'm used to at all. However, very tasty. My mother-in-law got the steak tips salad (so there are definitely options for those less excited about asian fusion) and I have apparently forgotten what R.'s uncle got. The kids got the Sunday, but I think the Kona Kone looked really cool. They are deconstructed desserts, so you get all the pieces in little dishes and you get to put them together yourself. Service was excellent. I got the beer flight. There's Kona coffee, so, you know, gotta drink that, too, right?
