This place must be a favorite for the locals. It was recommended to us by the owners of the cabins we stayed in on the Pemi River in Lincoln.

Holy cow this place is unbelievable. The portions are enormous and the prices very reasonable. Nothing fancy, everything is served on paper with plastic silverware, but the food is as good as breakfast food gets. 3 enormous blueberry pancakes with home fries bacon and real maple syrup $7.95. Next time definitely going for the short stack. If you are near... More

We hadn't been to Benton's in a while but it didn't disappoint. The wait was relatively short -- in spite of the fact that they were dealing with several cars worth of a traveling youth hockey team. Service was speedy, with coffee offered before we even had our coats off. The food, as always, was top-notch breakfast fare. The homemade... More

No frills, paper cups and plates but hands down the best breakfast in the area. You will not leave hungry or dissatisfied. Everything from the pancakes to the omelettes to the coffee is just delicious! Reasonable prices in a classic NH setting .... a do not miss in my eyes!
