Very good food and prices. This is the classic American restaurant, sausages, scrambled eggs, toasts etc. The staff is very friendly

This place started as a smoothie and real coffee stand (in the days when Nescafe was the standard in Mexico). Now, in this overbuilt and congested town, it has a vast menu and a huge presence...but it still maintains amazing quality. My compliments to the...owner.More

Charcoal banana was great back in its heyday when the food was better in The breakfast portions were much bigger and a better quality. We used to patronize choco bananas all the time in past visits but as always not everything changes for the better....Now that the lady who founded the restaurant is gone this place has slid way downhill. There's about 10 better choices surrounding this place. The only thing Worth getting would be a chocolate banana to go.More

This place has been in business since 1991, try a choco banana and you’ll know why! Sooo good, can’t have just one, you’ll come back!

I was told this was a must go as it is a "legendary" treat. Here's the deal, its frozen bananas, dipped in chocolate, then covered in one of 4 different toppings. When its 85, for less than $1, its a nice treat. Get one, go...to the plaza, chill and enjoy.More

Great location to see all the activity in the center of town. The food was delicious and the staff was exceptional.

We stopped by ChocoBanana twice for breakfast while visiting Sayulita and it was wonderful! The serivce was also very friendly and the food was great! Nothing too fancy, but also not too basic. The Lemon Slush Frappe is AMAZING. We went back to get one...to go before having to leave town. Imagine the frozen pink lemonade cups you get at the movie theatre or sporting events, but slushy. Mmmmmm I want one right now!More

After ten minutes of waiting a disinterested waiter called Lalo eventually came to the table...told us we would be better off eating elsewhere...at the same time another employee was scrubbing the floor around us with strong bleach...we had a young baby with us this was...unexceptionable...if you want to experience authentic Mexican food friendly service don’t go hereMore

Choco Banana is THE place to go for fresh brewed coffee anyway you want it! They have espresso, lattes, mochas, all the latest caffeine you could want! Plus a great breakfast! Doesn't matter if you want Mexican style, American, Canadian, Italian, Pancakes, Waffle, chorizo, sausage,...bacon...they have it all! You don't have to dress up, come as you are! And in the afternoon stop for a frozen choco-banana DELICIOSO!More

I ate breakfast here twice on my vacation. Had breakfast burrito, regular bacon egg type breakfast, strawberry smoothie & frozen lemonade. All of it was tasty. Service was very prompt & checked back on you often. Had the chocobanana also but wasn’t blown away by...it. But would definitely recommend for tasty quick breakfast.More
