Great Food

You won't be disappointed! The food is always good and the atmosphere is definitely vintage diner. I don't think they've changed a thing since the 50's. They have a menu, but you can also check out a huge selection from the off menu items listed on the wall. They server breakfast all day. Try the... read more

We were fortunate that we did not have to wait. Had two delicious versions of Eggs Benedict, a vegetarian version and a south western one. The home fries are great. We got a donut and cinnamon bun to go. The donut was great, the roll was dry and we'd skip it next time. We knew they only take cash, but... More

This old style diner is a great place for lunch but has limited seating. Plan your visit late morning or early afternoon to get faster service. There is no place to wait if Blue Benn is full. Great food in old venue.

We ate here every morning while visiting Bennington, Vermont. Small 50's style diner. Recommend early arrival to avoid waiting; however, even a wait is more than worthwhile. Food, and warm, homey service is unsurpassed.

Food is great, even for a celiac like me! Fabulous service. Worth the wait. Get there early, though, and you won't have to!

To enjoy the full experience sit at the counter and enjoy the goings on as you consume your meal. Service is quick and friendly and food is ample , hot , and very tasty. Reminded me of the diners that I enjoyed as a youngster.

TIME WARP!!! , nothing had changed it was still the homey classic diner with amazing food and service. If you are ever... More

Always try to eat a diner breakfast when I stay out of town. Blue Benn did not disappoint. Good service, well cooked Western omelet, crispy fried potatoes. I will return!

Saturday morning before the shopping trip our group of six stopped in to eat. The place was packed at 10 am! No worry; there were six open stools at the counter & we parked to a fun and delicious breakfast.

Waiting for a table is half of the experience. Good basic diner food with local personality flair. Loved the menu selections and overall experience. Sit at the counter for a shorter wait time and save room for the dessert selections.
