MUST... MUST... MUST Stop here! Great home-style cooking, everything was fresh, food was yummy and everyone is friendly!
The cafe prides it's self on homemade sandwiches, sauces, breads...pastries... well homemade everything! They also have a small market area, coffee area, smoothie bar and soup bar. Don't be turned off by the shady plaza, once inside you get warmly welcomed and get to taste some amazing food!
They have breakfast, lunch and dinner and it doesn't break the budget! Previous reviewer posted the menu... definitely take a look. Food has just enough spice, isn't soaked in salt and nothing was greasy! Cuban sandwich is amazing.... but try the Arepas (Juana monkey Juana Chino)... outta this world! For the pastries... the dulce de leche was a favorite... and the guava pocket (good breakfast and coffee choice) was more than fulfilling as well!
So... If you don't get the point... if you want some good homemade food... and don't wanna bust the bank..... stop in... you won't be disappointed!
I ADORE Juana Banana. It's a family-owned, Colombian cafe that keeps me and my husband coming back again and again. They sell the usual convenience store staples like eggs, milk, and butter, but also offer fresh produce. Additionally, they serve hot food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Starting at 5:30am, they serve coffee, oatmeal with several different toppings, egg sandwiches and homemade Colombian pastries such as bunuelos, pandebonos, sweet empanadas, guava pockets, dulce de leche bread, and much more. For lunch and dinner, they offer delicious rotisserie chicken, a wide variety of sandwiches, rice, beans, empanadas, short ribs, chicken-filled biscuits, sweet plantains, smoothies and much more. The food is all homemade and delicious. I loved almost everything I've tried. I served several different items at family parties and everyone wanted to know where they came from. If you eat beef, I recommend the Juana Monkey sandwich. It's pulled beef brisket in homemade BBQ sauce with peppers and onions served on an arepa with sweet plantains on the side.
The family that owns the restaurant is delightful. They're always cheerful and ready to help explain the menu or Colombian
