If you want a trip into the past try the Blue Benn. It is a very small diner that will take you back to the 1940s. The food is home cooked and delicious!

We came here the first time we visited Vermont based on the reviews here and it was great. The staff is friendly and there were so many food choices. The small town local feel was a nice change compared to Boston. We came back this year and the first place I wanted to go was the Blue Benn. I had... More

I LOVE LOVE LOVE going to old diner cars like this whenever I come a crossed one but I just don't get what ppl see that's so great about this one.

Quirky diner that maintains its 1950's feel. Seating is limited so you may have to wait.

Amazing selection of real... More

This is our favorite home town place whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner. They have everything you can imagine including gluten free bread for their sandwiches or breakfast toast. Great vegetarian selections, great home made soups.
