At Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, it seems every restaurant is truly a hit with fans. Whether we consider the delicious pineapple DOLE Whips from Pineapple Lanai, to the endless grilled meats and noodles at ‘Ohana, and everything in between this Resort always has delicious eats.

One popular stop for noodle bowls, sushi, and some delicious drinks, and one of Disney’s most beloved breakfasts, is Kona Cafe. This location was recently revamped with a brand new look and a new menu to go along with it. While Disney previously reassured fans that popular items (like Tonga Toast) would not be going anywhere, we have not had a look at the full menu, until now.

According to the new menus listed on Disney’s official website and the My Disney Experience app, Kona Cafe has reopened with a variety of fan-favorite items and new additions. One of the most noticeable updates to the menu is the sushi lineup, which now includes new offerings like the Shrimp Firecracker Roll with Tempura Shrimp, Crab, Tuna, Avocado, Cucumber, Chili Sauce, alongside pre-pandemic favorites like the Surf & Turf Roll with Kona-spiced Filet, Chili-spiced Lobster, Crab, Cucumber, Avocado, Yuzu Mayonnaise, Sriracha.

The other major addition to the menu at Kona Cafe is the Pineapple-Coconut Bread Pudding, available on the dessert menu for lunch and dinner. This dish comes with warm bread pudding topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Previously, Guests could order the bread pudding from ‘Ohana at Kona Cafe (based on availability) and now it seems this location has an official bread pudding of its own!

The breakfast menu with the exception of Tonga Toast and Macadamia Nut Pancakes sticking around likely has the most changes, but it seems the most popular dishes remain available (or have been removed long before the restaurant’s recent update, as fans of the Big Kahuna might remember.)

The drink menu continues to offer stellar beverage choices with everything from Kona coffee by Joffrey’s served tableside in a French Press for breakfast and dessert, and iconic cocktails like the Backscratcher and Lapu Lapu solidifying Kona Cafe’s status as the perfect spot for appetizers and drinks.

Reservations are available (and recommended) for dining at Kona Cafe on and in the My Disney Experience app. Enjoy!
