Of course, these are just a few of my favorite diners in Vermont. If you spend an afternoon driving through the back roads and small towns in Vermont, you are sure to find many wonderful diners that I haven't mentioned.

Most of the diners in the Green Mountain State offer classic American food with some regional Vermont specialties. Always ask what their special of the day is and get ready to try something new.

The Blue Benn in Bennington, Vermont

The Blue Benn is a 1945 railcar with vintage booths, a 1950s style jukebox, and lots of iconic Vermont charm. You can enjoy breakfast all day long at this diner and the helpings will ensure you won't leave hungry.

You can find The Blue Benn diner at 318 North Street in Bennington. They offer both sit down and take out food. If you're in the area, you can also get delivery service.
