I ordered French toast which was made with home baked bread. Yummy and more than I could eat. Food came quickly and was cooked to order. Easy parking and friendly service. Sunny location and easy to find. We eaten here three or four times always a good experience

I drop in for coffee or breakfast most week days. The Service is great and the food is too. The waitresses are friendly always meeting you with a good morning greeting.

Our third visit to this delightful and sunny dinner. Two prior breakfast visits and now lunch. BTW: we rarely give a dining establishment a second chance, so that in itself is a measure of our appreciation for this diner.

My mother and I stopped in for lunch after a hospital procedure. The turkey, apple, cheddar with cranberry mayo wrap sounded delicious but fell short of our expectations. The wrap was very dry. The service was fine and the diner was clean. While I am not rushing to visit again, I would be willing to give them another shot.

A very pleasant diner in downtown Bennington. Their baking powder biscuits are light, fluffy and tender. Two over easys with biscuit, sausage gravy and a cup of coffee are a beautiful thing to behold.

I just had eggs, toast and home fries. I liked the home fries because they were not greasy. Great bread for toast and homemade strawberry rhubarb jam. My friends didn't like the coffee so they would not rate as high as me but I'm a tea drinker.

The food was good, but if you are looking for excellence, move on. The place was clean and well run and while we liked the food, we have had better. I had breakfast and my husband had lunch, but neither meal was something I would go back for.
