Feel free to monkey around at this upbeat establishment. Sunday brunch features $4 mimosas served by local drag personalities.


    • An Orlando Gay Diner You Should Visit
      Bananas is located in the middle of gay friendly Vi-Mi neighborhood, just a few stores down from the Orlando Gay/Lesbian Center. There’s a separate parking lot in addition to ample street parking, and they are open 24 hours during weekends. I stopped off for breakfast – which is served all day. The restaurant is clean with nice diner décor, and you know you’re in the right place when you see the one wall adorned with large portraits of beautiful divas. The Bananas Big Breakfast was a full plate for just under $9. They also serve every-changing mac-and-cheese, 4 flavors of wings (i.e. honey garlic, chipotle), sandwiches, burgers and entrees, and 8 flavors of Huge Handspun shakes. They stage weekly events – gospel Sunday brunch, Saturday evening drag show, dining with divas,… The experienced waiter was attentive, knew the menu, and made the owner and (regular) patrons laugh with his slight jabs. The place is affordable and will make you feel at home if you’re a gay traveler. I recommend this place.

      Thumbs Down
      Gave this place multiple tries, each time was a bigger disappointment than the last. While the food itself isn't that bad, the service is HORRIBLE. One positive note though: they are open 24 hours.
