The Blue Benn Diner is a treasure - an historic rail car, tin-can like with a bar and booths. Bob Dylan sings "like a rolling stone," and you're transported to a simpler time, waiting for your burger and Indian pudding with ice cream. Go!

One of the best! A real home-town example with a stupendous breakfast selection. Be advised: Cash only, no CC's.

Stopped for lunch and stepped into a slice of nostalgia. Really nice breakfast. Eggs Benedict were nice and runny and the hollandaise just right. Pancakes and hash were very good. Honor system for seating. Price is right and service very good and homey.

I usually don't go to the same restaurant twice when traveling. However, we've been 3 times in the span of a month. We haven't been disappointed yet. Every thing ordered has been great. Bring cash, they don't accept credit cards.

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