Visited on a Tuesday mid-afternoon with no wait. We ordered a variety of classic diner food (meatloaf, roast beef, farmers omelette, banana walnut pancakes)..all large portions and were excellent. Could not resist desserts of apple crisp, coconut cream pie and chocolate pudding/lava cake. We were stuffed but it was all worth it! Service was courteous, food arrived just after we... More

Blue Benn Diner is recommended in Lonely Planet road trips in New England and not surprisingly. It is a classic American diner you must try especially if you are from Europe and only have seen a diner in movies.

We rushed in to buy wraps to eat as we drove. The wraps were tasty. Friendly enough atmosphere as well. Not a large menu nor particularly inspired but nevertheless solid

Was recommended by my hotel. Seemed popular with the locals. Large menu. I had the mushroom omelet, friends had smoked salmon omelet and western omelet. Everyone liked their meals.

We've eaten at this diner over 3 separate visits spaced years apart. We've always enjoyed the food and they offer lots of options. I had the raspberry crunch pancake, my spouse had an omelet; both were very good. The service was professional and friendly. While we waited 10 minutes for a table a local couple initiated a friendly conversation with... More

Very good Benedict. All with OF hash browns and interesting choices for toast. You won't need lunch. The prices are excellent for very... More

We look for diners when we are on a road trip. This was packed with locals at breakfast time, but found seats at the counter, where we could watch the ballet in the kitchen. Imaginative menu (we had black bean omelet and salmon omelet). Otherwise got what we expect at a diner: ample portions, good prices, friendly staff.

So much fun, and lovely food and staff and customers too. The blueberry and nuts wholegrain pancakes were delicious. We were so glad we had breakfast here- a real taste of America!

Old time diner. Small but with really good food. I had the open faced turkey! - REAL mashed potatoes.
