Best Breakfast in town and a weekly stop for most who live here. The diner has been written up in many travel journals as a trip back to the 50's with table coin juke box players. Everyone just waits in the doorway for a table to open up on the honor system first come first serve....no butting in.... but seating... More

This is the old style "real thing". Food was good and decent prices. Service very pleasant even though we arrived late they stayed open to serve us. Wide variety of menu items with daily specials. Will be on our "stop if we are in the area" list

This is a unique place. The diner originally came up from Paterson, NJ. There is a multitude of food to choose from that should satisfy anyone. Breakfast can be ordered all day. Booths and a counter to sit at and jukebox units at these locations - $25 cents for 2 plays of music that covers several decades. Food is always... More

We were actually fairly eager to try the Blue Benn when passing through Bennington on a family vacation, based on a couple of guidebooks and other sources that highly recommended the place. But our plans - and we did have a plan - were foiled by bad information on Blue Benn's Facebook page. We ended up not being able to... More

We came here as a group of 6. Yet there are no tables big enough for 6. We needed 2 booths and times it great that we could get 2 next to each other. We ordered 5 different things off the menu and all of is were very happy with our choices. The turkey on the hot turkey sandwich was... More

Had lunch with a friend there. I had never been there before. The sandwich i ordered was so good. Definitely will return!!!!! It is small and they only take cash but worth the trip. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because you can see their age (place has been there a long time...lol).

I came here by the advisement of a friend who saw this on TripAdvisor so I feel like it's fair to leave a review. This is a small place and was crowded when it was busy. I got a seat without waiting too long and had a huge variety of menu options to choose from. My food came out hot... More

Old style diner. Decent food. Take note - Cash only! Stopped here for Breakfast ... typical diner. It was recommended by the Hampton Inn for breakfast. It was OK. Coffee was good.
