Our favorite diner in Vermont, and we know quite a few. Cash only, fyi. A surprising number of interesting vegetarian options.

Real old-time original diner. Everything was delicious, served at proper temperature...HOT. Biscuits with sausage gravy, different pancakes all terrific. Server was a bit cranky.....maybe part of the "charm"?, or just a bad day. Even so, worth repeating.

I had lunch here yesterday. The food was great, the service friendly, and the atmosphere nostalgic. A must go to casual eatery if you are in Bennington.

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