The Blue Benn has one of the most extensive menus I've ever seen. Specials, which are not listed on the menu, are posted all over the walls so be sure to check them out. We had breakfast and everything was delicious. Great diner!

Small diner, very old, but iconic. No nonsense staff, they get it done. They have an enormously creative menu, traditional or trendy. Worth a visit, breakfasts the best.

Rarely do I disagree when so many Trip Advisor reviews are so good, but I really don't get what the fuss is about. Our omelet didn't have much flavor and the toast was burnt so much it was blackened. The pancakes were OK, but all...More

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