Bananas in Duarte - Anyone know of another place like it?

I got a friend hooked on this place and they have closed down for a few weeks (and it keeps getting extended). Does anyone know of another place like it somewhere East of Pasadena?

1345 Huntington Dr, Duarte, CA

    In Azusa, on the NW corner of Foothill and Pasadena Ave. is a place...don't know the name, but it is right next door to a Mexican restaurant called Taco Taco. It's two blocks east of Azusa Ave. (hwy. 39).

      There is a place a few lights away int he Target parking lot. next to the Police Substation. it is a Paleta place and they have the Fresas con creama. Never had it yet but i know they sell it. I was MAD when i found out they had closed down.

        I believe you're referring to La Mich Paleteria. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/366357

          La Mich closed down? I haven't been around there in awhile and last time I went I didn't get a paleta!

            I believe you misread the post ... BANANAS is closed, not La Mich.

            And on a related note, I was at The Green Onion today (adjacent to Bananas); they had signs in several places indicating that the Bananas menu (or at least some of it) would be available at the Green Onion beginning on 12/15.

          Bananas has been replaced by a sandwich/coffee shop-type of place. I think it's called "Joe's Place."
