Small but great food

Went here on the advice of the motel owner for breakfast on a Sunday morning. There was quite a wait. We ended up sitting at the counter, which was fine. The service was good. The food was delicious. We like diners, so we enjoyed the visit.

I visited this diner on the advice of a friend. Thank goodness for friends because I would have never stopped and then stayed. Was packed when I arrived and had to wait for a booth, I didn't want to sit at the counter. This is a fifties diner with what I would call a notch above the average diner fare.... More

We stopped here for breakfast while visiting Bennington this past weekend. Its been a number of years since we ate here. It has become very, very popular for its nostalgia and the variety and tasty food. When you get there you have to wait in the entry way until a waitress opens the door to let you in which means...

Great little diner. We had a generous breakfast My wife and I had eggs.My eggs were poached to perfection and my wife's were scrambled The bacon was done exactly as we ordered. The jam for our toast was not of the packaged variety but deliciously home made The coffee was fresh and full bodied.The server was pleasant friendly and efficient... More

We took a day trip to Bennington and stopped here because it got great reviews on line. What a disappointment. There was a line outside with people waiting to be seated. Good sign we thought. There were seats at the counter that no one waiting wanted so we took them. There were 3 booths with dishes waiting to be cleared... More

Solid classic Greek diner food. Nice Greek Salad with lots of Feta cheese and tasty salad dressing. Good fresh coffee. Attentive service. Clean bathrooms.

Cute little ambience of a diner. Nice waitress/ service. My daughter loved her pancake. I enjoyed my popeye egg Benedict. I'm just glad I had cash on me- it is cash only.

Everyone in the family loved this diner. Amazing blueberry chocolate pancakes for the kids and pastrami and chicken fried steak for the parents. Still in the vintage rail car and tableside jukeboxes to entertain and swallow quarters. Fun stop in Bennington!

This old diner is a classic. It has been in Bennington since "Forever" and that is a very long time. At times it can get very busy but this Tuesday at 09:30 it was not. I am always impressed with the menu selections. They are different and very numerous. I had the blue berry pancakes with turkey sausage and orange.... More
