Excellent diner. Incredibly cute and 50s down to the music selections at each booth. Fast service, and real maple syrup available for a buck. Great deal and great place. Highly recommend!

Crunch berry pancakes, ready to eat! It was mid-January, but those berries packed powerful fruit flavor.

This stack of blueberry pancakes cries out for butter and a spill of maple syrup.

A substantial donut, as Vermonters prefer. Krispy Kreme has yet to open a branch in the Green Mountain State.

Blue Benn Diner's crispy corned beef hash can be ordered as your main breakfast dish or a smaller portion on the side.

Traditionally Indian pudding is served as dessert. We like it for breakfast, too. That's a scoop of ice cream on top, melting fast in the hot grain.

Early morning: the Blue Benn is not yet totally filled with customers, as it soon will be.

Until every stool is occupied, thus constricting elbow room, the counter of the Blue Benn is a great place to read the newspaper. Note the countless signs posted along the wall, advertising kitchen specials.

There are so many signs advertising specials that they had to start hanging them on the old art deco clock.

The juke boxes lined up along the counter feature plenty of oldies.

We love the look of a well-worn counter, where millions of elbows have eroded the Formica.
