“Best Ice Cream in Staunton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Skip the desert at the local eatery and take a walk to the Split Banana. They have a nice selection of wonderful ice cream and gelato. The portion selections are excellent at a fair price.

“Great place right on the main street of Staunton.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

My husband and I were walking down the main street is Staunton, VA, when we saw some people sitting on a bench outside The Split Banana and eating ice cream. They told us it was wonderful and we decided to give it a try. They were so right!!!
I started by tasting and then had to have a waffle cone put into a dish and filled with 2 flavors of gelato. I had the Virginia Peanut Butter---amazing, and Hazlenut---super-amazing. My husband also had 2 great flavors.
Wonderful gelato in a busy place. Obviously, by the steady stream of customers, lots of people have discovered how good it is.

“A sweet treat in downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

What's not to like when you open the door to smell fresh waffle cones baking? The servers are quick to offer sample tastings of the selections of sorbet,gelatos, and ice creams. The flavors are delicious and since produced and presented in small containers stay fresh. Servings are small, but quality and flavor wins out. The small spoons help you savor these treats. A sweet treat indeed.
