“Healthier food on the boardwalk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

You can only handle so much pizza, fries, ice cream, fudge and so on! Finding the bashful banana was such a relief! Good, healthy food that you don't feel guilty for eating. The service was quick and our waitress was friendly and accommodating. Even the kids liked it! A nice break from the grease and sugar!

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

A nice healthy alternative to most boardwalk food and prices were reasonable. We enjoyed salmon which came with plenty of fresh broccoli and rice. We also enjoyed the salad with feta and chicken.

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Ocean City eateries are definitely lacking in quality overall...this place was a definite cut above. We ordered an omelette which was delicious and came with homestyle cut potatoes and toast...really delicious. And the chocolate chip pancakes were excellent. We would most definitely recommend.

“Learned our Lesson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

We have always eaten at Bashful Banana ever since visiting Ocean City years ago. We were never disappointed. This year we tried another restaurant, and we learned our lesson! Bashful Banana is the place to go. They serve healthy, delicious food!! And there are also so many healthy choices for a dessert. The banana whips are fantastic with a variety of add ins such as carob chips, fruit, flax seed, coconut, etc, etc, You want a good breakfast? Go here... you want a delicious lunch? This is the place! You want a fantastic dinner? You won't be disappointed!! PS....we had breakfast, lunch, and dinner here.

“Still Ocean City Boardwalk's Best-Kept Secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

We LOVE this place. The banana whips (which this place is famous for) are a great healthy, vegan and gluten-free alternative to mainstream NJ shore eating. Top it off with some great vegan/gluten-free baked goods, delicious/diverse breakfast items and a sweet, accommodating staff who were patient with our tall order (thanks especially to Nicole!) and you've got the best spot to eat on Ocean City's boardwalk, hands-down. We'll be back later in the summer! See you then!
