Banana Dang started out as a coffee shop in Rincon Puerto Rico by owners Thanh-Thanh “T2” Dang and Mario Jimenez.

The Rincon location.

After years of success they decided to move to the states and luckily enough they chose Oceanside for their new location. We have really been blessed over the last year to be attracting this caliber of people from the food industry.
