“Freshana Banana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Tasty simplicity. How do you make a banana so special? It is an art and a tasty one at that. Smooth as a smoothie but 100% banana. As a non-dairy person, it was a pure treat.
Everything fresh. My wife enjoyed one of the best Cubano sandwiches she has ever had. Nice fireplace in the back. Good spot to read a chapter two.

“Farm to table”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

I enjoy eating at Blissful Banana. The food is fresh and good. The desserts are wonderful. My favorite is the carrot cake. Be careful when ordering the banana dessert..anything you add to it is an additional charge. Before you know it, that cup of pureed banana is costing you a lot. My friend loves their gluten free pancakes.

“Healthy and Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

My family and I often come to the Blissful Banana Cafe. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner... it is a gem! Fresh food, great drinks, and their specialty desserts are what makes this place unique. Great gluten free and vegetarian options also... not easy to come by! I'd definitely recommend the hot chocolate (kids and adults love it!), oatmeal with bananas, brown sugar, and milk, the pancakes with blueberries and bananas (cooked inside!), and of course, a banana bliss. The best part is, everything is clean, fresh, healthy, and delicious.

“Little gem in a food wasteland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

So glad we found this place for brunch! We lived in Chicago for years and the southwest suburbs are at best home to chain restaurants - and frequently not very inspired ones at that. So we were extremely glad on a recent visit back to find Blissful Banana. The food was very fresh and flavorful, great waitstaff and cozy atmosphere - and they have good vegetarian options (which also tends to be sorely lacking in the southwest suburbs). I had the design-your-own egg and bagel sandwich, for which our waitress,Sam, happily accommodated a request for an item that wasn't even on the list. They have a fabulous selection of hot and iced flavored coffee drinks and lovely homemade blueberry muffins. Don't expect anything really off-the-charts eclectic, but compared to everything else in the area, this wins hands-down. Next time we visit our relatives, we'll be back!

“Fresh, made to order, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Had a great lunch of chicken tacos. My friends ordered salads and beef sandwich. My sister loved that they can make anything on the menu gluten-free. Service included free samples of their signature frozen blended blissful banana drink--awesome.
