Food selection for Vegetarians and non Vegetarians

This is the only restaurant I have been to that has a menu of varied selections for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. My adult children loved their vegetarian meals so much that we ate there three separate times during our week vacation. I totally enjoyed the Maple Soy Glazed Salmon. It was... read more

Love this place! The banana whip, which is just bananas whipped up, tastes just like ice cream! Sooo good and refreshing. I also appreciate the gluten-free options now available. Going someplace and having scrambled eggs with toast is awesome. They also have gluten-free muffins. Be sure to try this place if you're on the boardwalk in Ocean City. They have... More

I have been going to this place for years- their smoothies and muffins are to die for. I also love their wraps and cookies to take home for later after I have my coffee and muffin on their little bistro table for breakfast!

You need to taste it to believe it! Delicious treats that you would be sure are the finest ice creams are actually made with bananas. The varieties are taste buds' dreams come true...and it is good for you to boot!

Food and beverages are a little pricy but are still usually pretty good but the last time I went, the service was absolutely awful. It's like they're hiring employees who are way too young to deal with customer service and proper food preparation. I ordered one of their espresso drinks iced, which is something I ordered quite a bit last... More

I am an OC local and for years this was a favorite spot especially because of their healthier options and the banana whips. Yet, I am writing this seconds after dealing with an issue in Bashful Banana. I went to Huli Grill (which is the best on Colony walk) and my girlfriend went to bashful hoping we would be able...

My vegetarian daughter loves this place. They have wonderfully fresh healthy food selections on the boardwalk. We always have to stop by for a banana whip when we are in OCNJ.

The bashful banana is a place my family and I will go to at least once during our trip to Ocean City NJ. They are good for a fast and decent breakfast. They also make fruit and vegetable juices so if you find yourself low on veggies during your stay, this is the place to go. The only thing I... More

This is a place that many locals seem to like, based on the clientele we observed while there. The French toast and pancake dishes were really good. The fresh squeezed OJ is fantastic! My rating is down a notch as the omelet was watery and the coffee is weaker than I enjoy. Service was very good and the place is... More

The restaurant is on the boardwalk and has outdoor and some indoor seating. we came at noon on a Sunday and it was hard to choose between breakfast items and lunch. There were some many great choices. My daughter and I are on strict GF diets. The staff was very knowledgable and quickly found answers to our questions if they... More
