This is a gritty little slice of life. Absolutely a Mom & Pop and daughter affair. We ate at the counter for Sunday breakfast - made it in before a crowd had formed. Got tips from the regulars - yes - do try the reuben omelet. We had a great americana experience and a hearty breakfast that lasted us until... More

Be prepared for one of the best breakfast you have ever had!! I enjoyed multi-grain cranberry nut pancakes, fresh fruit and a bottom-less cup of coffee. there is usually a wait for a seat at this 40's/50's stainless steel diner.

No seating, needed to wait to be seated 20 minutes. They take cash only. And yes there is a sigh. It’s on the front door swung open and unreadable. The waitress brought over the ‘check’ I put my debit card on it she looked at it and walked away. About 10 minutes later the wife went up to pay ‘sorry... More

The food is wonderful and the staff is very nice. We had the French toast and the Hungry Person breakfast. The home fries are yummy, loved the French toast with thin sandwich bread and husband said the huge pancake was perfect. Try this when your are visiting Bennington.

Ok, I love diners, but this one is my favorite of them all and I come back here regularly. The food is regular diner stuff plus lots of vegetarian and even vegan options. The waitresses have been there as long as I have stopped in there, say 25 years or more and they are still totally engaged in doing it... More

Cool, old and authentic diner. The food was great, but it took a while. Coffee wasn't very good, but that was expected. Free and fast wifi.

Quaint, small, slow but worth the wait. Great breakfast food especially their muffins. This place is a favorite among the locals.

Every time I drive to western Massachusetts to visit friends, my trip would not be complete without going to Bennington Vt to eat at the Blue Benn Diner.This cozy little place is a rail car from the 40's and they have retro fit counters & booths with a juke box of 50's music with some of the best food you...
