The same people are working here for years and years. The food is great e.g. vegetarian chili with jalapeno cornbread muffin which I had yesterday. I ALWAYS feel better after spending some time at the Blue Benn.

Always a fun place to stop. So many interesting choices. Very friendly. If you pick a busy time you may have to wait, it's small, but worth it!

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