After reading all the reviews for the Blue Benn Diner - we had to check it out. It's a funky little fun diner. We got there after 1:30 in the afternoon and still had a short wait. We obeyed the rules and stayed in the entryway til called! Our waitress was pleasant. the only confusing thing was that besides the menu there are pieces of paper posted all over the back wall with meal suggestions. I wish I had the time to read them and make, perhaps, a different choice. I was happy though with my herb omelette with sour cream, plus home fries and toast. My husband had a sandwich which was huge- not stacked high but with giant pieces of bread. He enjoyed it. Would have liked to try a dessert but we were stuffed. The meals were very reasonably priced.

This diner was recommended to us by a couple of sources- TripAdvisor reviews for other area attractions, the proprietor of the motel we stayed at, and a random gentleman in the parking lot. We figured we'd better give it a try, and we are so glad we did!

It is a tiny little place, no more than a long counter and a row of small booths. Our waitress was very kind and attentive, and we found the pancakes to be delicious and the prices reasonable. It was so fun to sit in a booth with one of the old time juke boxes. Make sure you bring some quarters with you- 25 cents gets you two classic songs, most choices were from the 60s and 70s. Breakfast here at this genuine diner was a great start to our day in Bennington, highly recommended!
