If the Blue Benn hadn't been recommended by the front desk of the Hampton Inn in Bennington we would hAve driven right by it. It is a hole in the wall with counter service and several booths with patched seats equipped with wall mounted juke boxes which will play you 2 tunes for a quarter. We were here for breakfast and it is really good. I knew the goodness came from the butter the vegetables were sautéed in for my scramble but it was worth every bite. The western omelet was also delicious. There were people waiting when we got there, no list just first come first serve via the honor system. Friendly staff.

Had a great lunch with the family at the Blue Benn.

Chicken fried steak as good as you get in the South, a blackened salmon Caesar salad, spaghetti with a meatball the size if a softball, and ginger bread pancakes were on the menu for us today. Everything delicious and tasty.

A worthwhile stop if you're in town.

We went here for breakfast - sat at the counter right away (we expected it to be crowded, but due to the storm, we are guessing people weren't out and about). Food was OK - but we do cook our own breakfasts a lot and are picky.

If you want to see a piece of history - great place to go!

A Vermont legend deserving it's reputation. The Blue Benn has a menu for anyone. Vegan dishes and everything else you would expect in a diner. The variety of the menu and the quality of the food is amazing. The only negative can be the wait time , however anything this good is worth waiting for.

For a trip back to the 50's and 60's, this is the place to go. A fun place for a meal. Be aware that it is cash only.
