The Banana Kitchen

About us

We were founded in 2016 with a vision to bring the unique tastes and vibes of Spain to Austin, all with a focus on using locally-sourced ingredients.

The Mission

In the heart of Centro Idea in 2021, a simple desk selling coffee sparked a transformation when Anna, our visionary founder, saw potential in the courtyard’s empty canvas. With a simple desk and an outgoing spirit, she began her quest to breathe life into the area, serving coffee to passersby. For 3.5 months, Anna’s coffee desk became a beacon of warmth and community.
It wasn’t long before she recognized a greater need: a welcoming space where employees and visitors could gather, not just for coffee but for delicious meals that taste amazing and also empower the body and inspire a “can-do” mindset through nourishing, energizing fuel. This realization sparked the birth of The Banana Kitchen.
Our mission is ambitious yet simple: to offer fresh, homemade, nutritious food with a twist, all within a cozy and rustic setting that feels like a warm hug.

The Banana Kitchen is a dream made manifest through hard work, belief, and an unwavering commitment to our vision. It’s a place where each meal is a celebration, each visit is an experience, and every guest is family. We are not just a restaurant; we are a community.
But why “The Banana Kitchen”?
It’s a playful nod to our creative spirit (and a fun connection between Anna and “Banana”) -where we love to go a little bananas in the kitchen, coming up with delicious new creations for you.
