“Best value ever!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

The sign outside and the license plates tell it all: you will have to wait, but it's worth it. My friend and I had pie and breakfast (for lunch) and indulged in some homemade doughnuts. Oh, yes. Blue Benn is in a class of its own!!

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Had a late-ish lunch here at the end of my day in Bennington. Parking lot is a little bit tricky to get in & out of but it's well worth it. It's a tiny place so you may have to wait for a booth (I think they only have 8 or 10 of them) but there's plenty of seating at the counter. The menu is huge plus there's plenty of additions to the menu via signs all over the wall. Had the tuna melt - so great. And the fries were just right. The ladies are just what you expect at a dinner - a little tough on the outside but good hearts--my waitress kept calling me honey which made me smile.

“Yum!!!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We ate here at the recommendation of my parents and the great reviews online. Very small diner with a huge menu selection, if you count the wall of choices. We were on our way to Bennington Potters and it is right around the corner from it. Great prices and great food, would eat here again if in the area.

“Yummie!!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Great breakfast, reasonable prices, fun atmosphere, friendly patrons and a great staff that knew every answer to any questions we had. 2 adults/2 kids and the bill was about $40...and we didn't skimp on ordering, either! Would definitely recommend!

“Fun place for lunch”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We ate here at the recommendation of the clerk at the Bennington Battle Monument. The blue benn was not at all what we expected, but we loved it. We opted to sit at the counter instead of waiting for a booth. Our waitress was very good and recommended to great sandwiches. We would have loved to have dessert, the chocolate pie looked wonderful, but we were absolutely stuffed. Go there!!!!
