Outstanding neighborhood coffee shop serving premium teas, coffees, pastries and toasts.

Cute hangout on the 101 with local art on the wall, delicious coffee and tea drinks plus nibbles. The "super moist" banana bread was just that.

Yummy toast treats , connect 4 - oh, and coffee... We visited early afternoon on a weekday so it was kinda quiet. Fun. A good spot close to the "downtown" area for a quick snack and a beverage.

They definitely have good coffee But the price tags are higher than Starbucks! They don't have too much of a selection other than the coffee.

This is a relatively new coffee shop to the Oceanside Coast Highway corridor, although it is much more than just coffee. They offer delicious smoothies as well. The inside is very cozy, with high tables (offering chess boards) and window counters. Very nice!

Banana Dang Coffee on Coast Highway 101 is a perfect fit for this up and coming funky foodie town. The super friendly owners, Mario Jimenez and Thanh-Thanh Dang, originally ran their cafe in Puerto Rico before relocating to Oceanside. I love how they source from local roasters like Lofty, Revolution and Zumbar. The Nutty Banana Happy Toast took me back... More

I love it. Friendly owners and simple delicious menu. I like the sweet latte and crunchy honey toast. They have pretty local art hanging on the wall. Everything here is clean. Pretty music playing. Checker board, art pads and pens and chess board on the tables. Welcoming vibe.

Banana Dang is a transplant business from Puerto Rico I think and boy am I glad they landed in Oceanside. Walking distance from my girlfriend's house, we tend to frequent all too often, but can't get enough of the NUTTY Dang add espresso (make it dirty) and light peanut butter. This morning delight always quenches my thirst, adds protein, and... More
