Love the Banana Whip

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

My wife thinks their Chicken Quesadillas are the best. We go here at least once on our trips to Ocean City for lunch. I liked their turkey burger. My wife go the Banana Whip and liked it.

So my wife has to eat gluten free and this place is awesome. Every year we go here for breakfast and she can enjoy a gluten free waffle covered in tons of banana whip. It is delicious. I have never had a bad breakfast here. Their muffins are great, warmed up and soft. They even have gluten free and vegan... More

We were looking for something different than the typical boardwalk fare. We looked at the menu and decided to stay. They were very busy but we managed to grab a table. The menu is chicken, turkey, fish and veggie. We had salmon, tofu in a peanut sauce and a veggie burger. The first two were great and the last was... More
