  • This place is right before entering the Salton Sea Recreation area. The hours say it opens at 11:30am but the owner didn't show up until 1pm. We showed up at 11:30 am and just returned on our way back...  more »
  • This is off the beaten track! If you are near the Salton Sea then definitely stop....it will make you smile seeing everything banana. It's easy to miss just two shops off the road. It is a very small ...  more »

  • Still wondering why banana and why in the middle of nowhere. That makes this place unique. It's basically a store that they call museum, with all items you can imagine related to banana. Very friendly owners.
  • This place is a sacred treasure. Also, I really like their bananas foster shake. That thing is BANANAS B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
  • Per their sign "The most A-peeling place in the world". This place though, is actually in a great location. Admission is $1 per person, but the fee is waived if something worth $1 is purchased. Cash is King here. It makes it much easier to purchase unless you're planning on buying more than $5-10 worth of items. Any less than that it's not worth the CC fees. Homemade banana ice cream is perfect on a hot day here, which is pretty much 365/365 days out of the year. Everything banana related is here from Pulp Fiction UCSC Banana Slugs toys and photos to a raggae themed banana joint ashtray. Whatever you're thinking they got it. Only thing I did not see was a Banana Bread. Go figure. Drop by this place if you're in the area you won't regret it. Oh, FYI...don't park on the left of the side of the banana store (the liquor store). They don't seem to like it much.
  • The owners are extremely nice, and make THE BEST BANANA FOSTERS I've ever had along with having many historical artifacts relating to the history of bananas🍌
  • Quaint, cosy, welcoming. One of a kind. Worth a stop if you're in the area.
