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

My sister is vegan and it is very difficult to find anything for her to eat besides salad! We were so happy to find Bashful Banana for a healthy treat! I got the banana whip for the kids and enjoyed one myself.

Small cafe with outdoor seating or take out. Good quality fresh food. Staff friendly and helpful. Just off the main boardwalk in Ocean city and close to the ocean.

Very accommodating of food allergies. You can find something for everyone with this great menu. Dessert whips made only with fruit! Highly recommend this healthy cafe.

My wife and I eat here a lot when we are at the shore. I am the vegan/vegetarian of the family and the Bashful Banana offers plenty of fare for my way of eating. The regular eater can find numerous menu items as well so don't be scared. I love being able to get the banana whip with all kinds... More

As a long time vegan, I can say, that the shore is not a friendly vegan place. The boardwalk is lined with pizza, icecream, candies... I always end up having to go hungry. Enter: Bashful Banana Cafe & Bakery. A vegan friendly joint located ON the boardwalk. A little cafe with indoor and outdoor seating, Bashful has lots of healthy,... More

This is the only restaurant I have been to that has a menu of varied selections for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. My adult children loved their vegetarian meals so much that we ate there three separate times during our week vacation. I totally enjoyed the Maple Soy Glazed Salmon. It was excellently cooked as was the brown rice and the... More

Love this place! The banana whip, which is just bananas whipped up, tastes just like ice cream! Sooo good and refreshing. I also appreciate the gluten-free options now available. Going someplace and having scrambled eggs with toast is awesome. They also have gluten-free muffins. Be sure to try this place if you're on the boardwalk in Ocean City. They have... More
