Matt was getting a craving for the pork tacos from Kona Café, so we decided we would grab lunch there before heading over to Epcot for a few hours. We made a reservation for 11am and were seated shortly after we arrived. I had my eye on the Kona Salad while looking over the menu online, so when we were handed breakfast menus, we were a bit surprised. After my breakfast experience at Kona Café a few weeks back was slightly below my expectations, I wasn’t too keen on sticking around. I asked what time they started serving lunch, and it wasn’t until noon. After some deliberating, we decided we would stay for breakfast. Since nothing on the menu was sticking out to me, I asked if I could just get a side of bacon. I know, boring. But I really wasn’t in a breakfast food mood at that time; I was in lunch mode. But have no fear, since Matt stepped up to the plate and decided on the cult favorite Tonga Toast!
For those unfamiliar with Tonga Toast, it’s bananas stuffed in thick sourdough bread which is coated in cinnamon sugar. It’s served with strawberry compote and a choice of ham, bacon, or sausage. Matt ordered sausage for the side.
Upon looking at my four lowly pieces of bacon, he shared his pineapple wedge and a sausage link with me.
He then sliced off a few bites of the Tonga Toast for me to try. Well, I now know what all the hype is about! Everything about the toast was delicious. The bread soft and the bananas were reminiscent of bananas foster. The strawberry compote tasted great and was awesome on top of the toast. It was really like eating dessert for breakfast!
Next time I visit for breakfast, it will be difficult for me to decide if I want to give the Macadamia Pineapple Pancakes a try, or stick with what I know will be awesome: Tonga Toast! So I’m a little late to the Tonga Toast party, what about you?
