Great Banana based treats with lots of options for toppings. Great desert for all gluten free. The granola is gluten free, but is processed in a facility that processes wheat. We left it off for safety. They are great about answering questions.

So delicious and perfect for the beach. Their granola is NOW gf, but manufactured in a place where gluten is present. We opted to just leave the granola off to be extra safe. So yummy! Highly recommend!

Delicious banana "ice cream" (it's made with just frozen bananas). You can get several different kinds with various local toppings like a nut butter, honey, papaya, pineapple, etc.

Smoothies and cold brew coffee as well. Decent prices! And biodegradable containers.

A must visit for healthy indulgent gluten free local treats!

As soon as I asked Bout gluten, the woman at the counter told me "there is gluten in the mocha chips which we keep in a separate area and the granola is made in a factory that also processes wheat," but otherwise everything else is good to go.overall really reassuring and delicious

Convenient and good! We ordered and brought it down to the beach to watch the sunset while we ate it. Only got it once while on the island because of the price though!

Banan is phenomenal!! Everything is gluten free, even the granola. The staff warned me that while they are gf oats, there is still a slight chance of cross contamination that can occur (which is understandable with oats). I have been to Banan four times and have not gotten sick. My favorites are the mocha frappe and the Amazon açaí. This is a must go to!!

Amazing dessert place! Ate there four times in less than 24 hours. Tested once with Nima just to be sure. Came back as gluten free. Close to the beach so a nice dessert while relaxing. Or anytime.

Banana-based soft serve. Everything is GF except the granola. I told the server I was celiac and she took precautions to avoid cross contamination. Would recommend!

100% recommend! We went immediately after hiking diamond head as a post hike treat and it really hit the spot! The only thing not GF is the granola and I asked about DF on the chocolate. They checked the package and were happy to tell me it was DF but processed in a shared facility. I love it when people are so thorough and kind about us glutards! I got the Riss Moore without granola and it was so delicious. Definitely go if you get the chance!

We are Banan 2x/day in Waikiki! Gluten and dairy free, it’s simply soft serve local bananas, with a variety of fruit and savory toppings. My favorite was the Chunkadelic - Banana soft serve with local honey, macadamia honey nut butter, coconut, puffed quinoa and chocolate. Great stuff and super friendly staff!

Awesome place. It looks like ice cream but it’s banana. They serve it with fresh fruit, honey, etc. They said the only non GF item is granola. They seemed to be very knowledgeable. They put clean gloves on for our order and we had no issues. It’s delicious, fresh, filling and healthy! We went about 4 times during our stay.
