Drove from Lexington to check out The Split Banana Co due to others' good reviews. It was not a disappointment. The place was buzzing from the crowd, but we were able to find a table. Everything we ordered from "plain" ice cream, sundaes to a shake was delicious. The staff was very nice and went... read more

This shop was one of our favorite stops while strolling through Staunton. Wonderful selection of ice cream. I had the expresso and it was amazingly flavorful. :-)

Yes, it is the best frozen whatever in town and often the only dessert available after 9 PM in the historic district. Flavors are spectacular and match the decadent mouthfeel/ texture of this dessert. And never an ice crystal in sight or taste. But I found the waffles cups soggy. Still, refreshing, even if it's not a restaurant!!

I LOVE that they do not use cane sugar in their sorbet. Instead they use local honey! Dairy free and good for you= awesome. The wait staff are young and super nice. Well done!

Line isn't long and moves quickly. We were there on a warm June night and lots of people had the same idea. Gelato is freshly made and "delizioso!" If you are in the Staunton area, it a must stop. We had dinner down the street but passed on dessert because we saw the great reviews. Glad we did. Just a... More

Stopped on a detour off of I-81 and was pleasantly surprised by a young cheerful staff who knew their product... and the product was delightful. I got chocolate, espresso, and Guiness stout, a great trio in a waffle cup!

We love the Split Banana. Great choices and it's always excellent. You won't be disappointed if you make a stop. Downtown Staunton is great too.

Delicious gellato, made fresh with pure ingredients! Awesome flavor creations from the traditional chocolate or Reece's cup to unique ones like Pineapple basil, Guinness Stout Cream! Specials like "Waffle Wednesday" where you get the waffle cone OR bowl free keep customers happy!
