The Blue Benn Diner is a one of kind!! We enjoyed our breakfast and loved the atmosphere! There are so many options we plan on returning in the future. The staff was busy but friendly. Our food came out fast and hot and our coffee cups were always full..What else can you ask for?!! If there is a line..wait it... More

Like being transported to New Jersey in the 40s only better food (and much more variety) and better scenery. The diner itself is like a caricature of itself -- down to the tiles on the walls. But the service was fantastic. Our server was totally honest about what the restaurant was good at and what was just standard diner fare.... More

I expected and got diner fare, no less and no more. If you want to experience a real American diner, go here. The menu options are seemingly endless and the staff is very friendly. We arrived at about 3 PM, so it was a really late lunch or a very early dinner. There was no wait at all. The food... More

Huge selection of food that comes out of a tiny kitchen. Waitresses who've been there forever. Typical diner food plus healthy choices like tofu scramble, brown rice & organic eggs to remind you that you're in VT. Cash only, no reservations. You wait until it's your turn. Definitely worth the wait.

When planning our western Vermont run-out, I posted to facebook asking for don't miss recommendations in the area. A friend named this diner and called it a national treasure; I second his opinion. We stopped for lunch on our way to Middlebury, and liked it so much we planned a lunch again on our return trip. The diner itself looks... More

This was a restaurant enjoyed by the local people; therefore that usually means it has good food! It was an authentic diner with a large number of interesting food choices. The food was good, staff friendly, and well-worth a visit.

We were touring New England and came upon this place. It is an authentic Diner with friendly staff, juke boxes on each table, booths, seats at the counter etc. and a typical diner menu. We had the meatloaf and mashed potato which was great. I really recommend this place if you want a feel for the USA as it was.
