The baked goods and banana whips are the only things I'd eat here. All of their other dining items like eggs, bacon, pancakes and such are made in a microwave. The service has also taken way too long lately. I recently saw people leaving before and after ordering because the service was taking way too long. I foolishly stayed and... More

If you're Gluten-free and Dairy-free this is the place!! A most yummy salmon burger on a GF bun (tasty, moist!). A huge parfait with frozen whipped bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries ----worth the long drive to O.C.

My favorite spot for a vegetarian meal. And the banana whips - taste better than ice cream. We love that there is a healthy option on the boardwalk.

Not sure how they do it, but they take a banana, push it through some kind of a machine and out comes this cold, creamy, refreshing (dare I say) "dessert"... But it's not really dessert because it's actually good for you, yet it taste like ice cream. Additionally, you can choose toppings to add such as fresh strawberries, blueberries, peanut... More

If you want a healthy gluten free breakfast, look no further. The banana whips are great. Tried banana and strawberry but nothing beats plain banana. Love this place!

This place was one of the few places that offered gluten-free food. Although they were extremely busy, the staff was efficient and friendly. I would recommend eating inside if possible as the seagulls were troublesome. I ate there for breakfast and it was delicious. They even baked their own gluten-free bread. I highly recommend the Bashful Banana.

Why is Bashful Banana listed in the bakery section and not in the restaurant section of Ocean city? I have eaten at pretty much all the restaurants in ocean city and this by far should be listed up there at least at #2 or #3 as the best restaurants to eat in town just under Jon and Patty's and Yanni's....

Had brunch here - omelettes are huge - so be prepared! Fresh squeezed juices. Yummy baked goods! Lots of options for healthy cuisine (which let's face it, the boardwalk is not really known for...) Great sides! A few tables are inside but the rest are under umbrellas outside.. This is tucked into one of those "allies" off the main boardwalk.... More

We found this place after a friend recommended it. Tucked away just off the boards - it is great! Friendly service, tasty excellent meal selections with endless possibilities for foodies, allergies or just healthy life styles! Service was excellent and prices were extremely reasonable considering the lengths they go for "specialized" requests! We ate lunch and breakfast here during our... More

As someone with several food intolerances, including dairy and gluten, it's so hard to find a good sweet treat anywhere! Especially in Ocean City when you're passing Kohr's and whatnot on the boardwalk. I've had a few of their whips, always with toppings, and I just love them. I'm so happy this option exists. I will say the inside of... More
