A really nice place. Nutty banana just so good... Sure we will go back there for a great family moment. And lot of games for children too.

Stopped in to this charming little coffee shop with my husband and kids. We ordered coffees, smoothies, frappes ...... Everyone was very happy with their drinks! We will be back.

I was lagging a bit after walking for a couple of hours at the San Diego Botanical Garden. I was intrigued by the name! I ordered a triple expression with a splash of vanilla. I was surprised to taste a smooth chocolate flavor. Not even a hint of bitterness. I will go back to try a smoothie.

I have lived in Oceanside for about 20 years. Downtown has been growing and I haven't been there recently. My daughter heard about this place on Yelp as she loves good expresso. We brought my 18 year old grandson who is a coffee connoisseur as well as future chef. My other three grandchildren came along who are ages 12-9-8. I... More

We just popped in to have a coffee and snag the WI-FI, it was very quiet as we were the only patrons at the time, the staff were very friendly and helpful making for a very relaxing cup of coffee, some nice artwork on the walls, restrooms were nice and clean,

Besides loving the name, this place has great coffee drinks, smoothies, and coffee drink smoothies! A very limited fresh baked good selection too. Wonderful feel.

Great coffee, happy toast and interesting art. The staff/owners are not very gregarious but that was OK. Seem a little shy. There are board games to play and interesting art to contemplate.

If you want get away from the coffee chains and their formulaic production line then Banana Dang is where you want to go. Each coffee is carefully made to order with great coffee beans and attention to detail. I would highly recommend this coffee shop - one of our number is an Italian coffee 'expert' and he loved it.

Perhaps the food is worth the kudos this place has received but the service and the Latte left a lot to be desired.

Saw review in Osider Magazine. Had to try it. Coffee is pour over and was really good. I also got a chocolate donut with a thick layer of coconut and cream cheese frosting that was still warm and oh so yummy. The donut comes from someplace down the block. The best part of this place is the couple that runs... More

I'm Banana Dang, Oceanside's first craft coffee bar. I serve coffee and banana smoothies. People who want bacon and eggs hate me. Come drink rad coffee! I have WiFi. I clean up well.
