I am a diner fan! I was pleased with the food-asparagas cheddar omelette with first rate real sourdough toast. For that reason, I might visit again. Problems 1. Crabby waitress at the register as we entered, no welcome, just terse instructions that you don't put your name on a list, you just go back out into a much too small... More

Each year we head to Bennington for our Christmas tree. We stop here for our lunch. It's like stepping back in time. Great lifelong waitresses make your experience worthwhile. They have a great menu but the best "specials" are on the wall behind the lunch counter. Bring CASH! They do not take credit cards.

It's a true diner complete with steel exterior and mini jukeboxes in the booths. Very small. Food is pretty typical diner fare. If you are doing the diner trail it's definitely worth hitting.

Went here about an hour before closing at about 3:30pm two Saturdays ago. I had a great plate of lovely crispy dish 'n' chips with hot chocolate and Deb had the burger and fries with a coffee. The fish was flaky and succulent. We had Indian pudding as dessert which we took away with us but when we opened it... More

We stopped in for a bite at the Blue Benn Diner. You'll step back into time when you eat there. We had Sandwiches, fries, chili, drinks. Prices are reasonable and food is good. You won't leave hungry!

Whenever I have time while passing through Bennington, I have lunch here. The absolute best wide vegetarian menu ever, anywhere. And it is fabulous food. I love the quesadilla with black beans. A little sprouts, chiles, salsa and cheese, is soooo great. Extensive and delicious menu. The waitstaff, bring back memories. Don't expect warm and cuddly. The homemade pastries, and... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way out of Bennington to our next destination on our trip to Vermont. I ordered the grilled Havarti cheese sandwich on sourdough bread and he ordered the burrito. When the waitress brought out our food my husband couldn't get over the size of the burrito. I have never seen one that big... More

We were hungry for a good breakfast after days of free motel waffles. We didn't know if it was going to be good or not but decided to wait in order to give it a try. So glad we didn't miss this place! Food was good! Coffee was good! Don't miss a chance to eat here.
