This diner is really special - hardworking, friendly & efficient staff, with a fantastic menu (I'm still dreaming about the Rueben omelette) and great atmosphere. If you're on holiday in the area, go every day for breakfast! If you're local, lucky you!

Always a fun place to stop. So many interesting choices. Very friendly. If you pick a busy time you may have to wait, it's small, but worth it!

This is an authentic rustic family diner with limited seating taking cash only. The jukeboxes in each booth took us back to the 60s. Quick friendly service and delicious food at bargain prices was a great start to our day. It is somewhat off the...More

My wife, and I were in North Bennington, Vermont for the weekend, and saw this diner along the road. We were so glad we decided to stop, as this is a 1940’s diner that is what we call a “quaint old gem”. The interior makes...More

I have eaten at the Blue Benn numerous times over the years. One of my go tos is chicken or turkey croquettes which few diners serve these days (a diner favorite from my childhood). My turkey croquette was served with brown gravy instead of chicken...More

No idea! We were there in October for dinner and arrived before the rush. It is small, but very worth it!
