Sonny’s Blue Benn: Feeding the Soul of a Vermont Town

This richly illustrated book captures the essence of a local landmark, documenting the history of a legendary diner and the family that created it. The Blue Benn’s story is told by the people that made the diner an iconic Vermont institution: the family that built the business, the regulars who ate there and the staff that served them. Together, they serve up home-spun, funny and often poignant accounts of life at the Benn and, in doing so, capture a slice of life in small-town Vermont.

“The book was beyond anything I ever imagined. It’s truly priceless and such a gift to my husband’s legacy.”

Mary Lou Monroe, former owner of the Blue Benn Diner
