A women at the Will Moses Gallery recommended Kevin's and we were so glad she did. We were the only strangers in the place. The restaurant is small and was busy on the Tuesday afternoon we were there. We both had burgers that were big and juicy...I almost never order a burger out because I'm usually disappointed, but not here.
OMG it was great. I of course ordered sweet potato fries which were also very good.
There was one waitress on, so she was busy, socializing too, but service was pretty quick.
We will return when in the area.

My family (adults ranging from 21 - 56) ate here last month. I really want to love this place but I can't get there. The Venue is just great old storefront exposed brick - just a fantastic feel. We have tried Allegro twice in the past and now this is our third visit. Southern Vermont has a real void in top notch Italian eateries most I would describe as average. Allegro fits that description.
Several of us ordered salads which were all outstanding. The spinach salad in particular was memorable. The entrees we ordered included Arctic Char, Risotto, Pappardelle with mushroom sauce, and the Beef short ribs. The reviews around the table were all about the same. The food was catering hall like. Nothing bad, all real safe, no jump off the plate flavor. We got the feeling it was a short order cook reading the recipe off a card in the kitchen. The best way to describe the food is that it's not bad for Southern Vermont but it's still average compared to other Italian restaurants.
I would probably go back if the logistics worked out, but Allegro is not one of my top recommendations. Try it if you are having a craving. Order the spinach salad !!!

We've been driving by here for YEARS and each time the lot is packed. Finally this year, we decided to stop for a late lunch. I believe we were there around 3 or 4pm which worked out perfect. As we finished eating it became PACKED.
The food was good. There aren't a lot of vegetarian options that aren't mushroom based, but I did debate between a cheese/pickle platter, the grilled cheese and the bruschetta. I wound up with the bruschetta which was yum. Others in my group had a Turkey wrap, a burger and wings and a salad. The only complaint on the food was about the caprese salad. The friend who ordered that said the balsamic used pooled on the bottom of the plate and was not a good quality balsamic, but other than that everyone enjoyed their food.
AND BEER! great beer choices!

Benson's Dairy Bar reminds me of a vintage 1950's eatery, both inside and out. The owners and wait staff are friendly. The menu is diverse and reasonable....and very good! Two of us had liver, bacon and onions ($12.99) and two had the fresh roasted Turkey dinner ($10.99.) Almost the best liver, bacon and onions I've ever had. The Turkey dinner was a tad salty (for someone who doesn't use salt at all) but overall it was proclaimed tasty. The dinners came with excellent bread, a choice of starch and vegetables. One person had strawberry shortcake for dessert; another had the tapioca pudding. All in all, a pleasant meal and, yes, we would go back again.

All the food is great. Baked good delicious and sandwiches good size. A little pricey but the quality is excellent. The owners are very nice and even if its crowded you never feel rushed. Great small town atmosphere.

My daughter and I stopped here on our way up to Vermont through Troy, NY. It was late, we were traveling with our old beagle...I parked and got stuck in the parking lot. Make a long story short, Tammy and her husband came out to help us as well as a few of the customers who were eating. This is not a fancy place, it's a homey place. My daughter had the homemade chowder and a burger. I had fish-n-chips and homemade lemonade. We got a rare hamburger to go for our dog. The joint was bustling that eventing because of the gigantic corn maze out back. A fond memory for us.

We did not eat because we wanted a sit down meal, but when we stopped we spent over an hour just looking at all the interesting things this store has to offer. Certainly a place to find things you really don't need but just have to have!

Brown Cow Cafe is the healthy alternative for fresh made to order breakfast and lunch in Bennington. Always have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free soup, sandwiches, salads, and sweets available as part of our regular menu. Full menu of espresso drinks using Vermont roasted fair trade organic Mocha Joe's coffee.
I had heard about it and read about it but never made it there until today. It is very convenient for anyone visiting the hospital or nearby medical facilities. I went there today with two younger family members. The sandwich and salad selections were so delicious sounding it was hard to decide. There is no alcohol but great juice, soda and tea/coffee selections. It is tucked in behind what used to be the Paradise Restaurant and it is near the current Paradise Motel. Outdoor tables are available depending on weather where pets are allowed. All in all a great find.

Amazing selection of old timey candies such as fruit slices, candy sticks, jelly beans in every flavor, etc. Also plenty of chocolate! You can also order Vermont cheddar cheese by the pound, which is sliced off a large wheel of cheese upon ordering.
Ice cream available but I didn't order any today.
Owners friendly and personable.
$15 credit card minimum.

This was my first pumpkin spiced coffee of the season and I thoroughly enjoyed it !! My wife has her usual fix of original coffee with loads of cream.
