This is a good old home cooked meal type of place excellent for breakfast or lunch. We had awesome beef stew, hearty and wonderful for a 15 degree day, and a hot turkey sandwich which is a diner favorite and done exceptionally well at the Blue Benn Highly recommend, we will be back!

My bride and I had a great breakfast here recently. It had been a few years since we were here in Bennington and we had good memories of breakfast. We were not disappointed! We shared an omelette. It had cheese, tomato and guacamole. We also ordered a side of bacon. My wife also ordered a morning glory muffin......everything was delicious!!!!!... More

Blue Benn is the place to go to; having grown up here and visited Blue Benn since I was a kid, it continues to be the to go place and the #1 place that I refer anyone from outside the area to for a great breakfast or lunch. Lots of choices and great, home cooked food.

I went here for lunch with my wife after skiing at Prospect Mountain about 7 miles away. This is old fashioned diner with jute boxes at the tables and I am glad that I had some quarters since I played a few tunes.They serve breakfast all day. Please note that the restaurant takes only cash. Both my wife and I... More

My adult son and I go to lunch together about once a month. We have been hitting every restaurant. He always orders a burger and he was happy with the one he ordered at Blue Benn. It was cooked just the way he ordered it. He is ranking burgers and this was high on the list. We did have to... More

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
