The table space is a little small but the gelato is amazing and we always have fun playing the piano.

The best ice cream you will ever eat, hands down. Creative flavors made from organic local cream. Always friendly staff will let you have a taste. I recommend mixing it up and two scoops of different flavors.

Split Banana offers a nice variety of small and big treats from their very fresh house made gelato and sorbet. Their revolving array of flavors and their friendly offer of free tastes-before-buying always make it a fun experience --- the perfect ending to a meal at a nearby restaurant in the historic district of Staunton.

Gelato, sorbet, yum! A great place to stop for your dessert!! You won't be sorry!! Not your everyday ice cream place- it is sooo much more! Eating there is an experience all by itself!

The Split Banana is fabulous. The variety of flavors, the variety of items like milk shakes, fudge cakes are out of this world. It's a small little place, but quit cute in decor. Some outside seating in historical area. They will also allow tastings before purchase. Great experience.

Great flavors of Gelatto. I got cocoa ancho which was a rich dark chocolate with a little bit of chili pepper in it. It was spicy but not too hot. I also got a white chocolate with crushed lemon cookies which was a perfect mix.

My family and I have been to The Split Banana dozens of times. Every time we come to Staunton we stop by. Their gelato flavors are incredible. My favorite of Cocoa Ancho, which is dark chocolate made with some ancho chilis. It is only slight spicy, but has a distinct essence of the chilies. It is my go to treat.... More
