Would it be illegal to sit at coffee shops and leave a fake tablet on the table and when someone tries to steal it, stab them with a banana?
I just want to scare them, so they won't try to steal again

I don't think it's illegal, provided that the banana is peeled on the concave side (in 48 states). The 2 exceptions are the states of Utah and Alabama, which consider bananas to be lethal weapons no matter what side is peeled (but only on Tuesdays).
The law is ambiguous in territories like American Samoa, especially since the natives never saw bananas before 1963. However, they have well documented coconut-assault laws.

It depends on whether the banana is a Dole or a Chiquita.

It's not illegal BUT it does grant them the right to pull out their gun and claim they feared for their life.
