During a recent visit to New York, we ate here every morning. We chose it by chance, because it was only a short walk from our hotel. I cannot pretend that we ate a variety of things from the menu; we chose the Lumberjack every morning - and every morning it was delicious! Fluffy pancakes, crispy bacon, maple syrup, tasty... More

As a non NY resident, these people make me feel like a "regular". I will be here EVERY time I come to the city. Great food, great staff and a cool place to boot.

I'm an airline crewmember that travels the country and I stay in quite a few hotels. I always try to avoid hotel restaurants in that they are expensive and lack character. I enjoy finding "mom and pop" places where I stay. The doorman at my hotel recommended this place. The food was good, and service prompt and friendly. I had... More

I have eaten here a few times with a friend who works nearby. A popular spot, however there is always a table available without too long a wait. Eggs were properly cooked, the bacon was crispy and the multi-grain toast delicious. Good coffee too! The grilled chicken sandwich was nicely done as well. Great homemade French fries.

Every time I visit NY I make sure to try a book a hotel that is close to here now as I have to stop in for something to eat. Buttermilk pancakes, stuffed french toast, omelettes or an all american are just some of my fav's. They have friendly staff and very attentive (which is not so easy to always... More

I loved this place. I travel a lot and love to find little gems like this. Good food, reasonable prices but the thing for me is how nice the staff is and Comfort Diner is a place I will return to often when I'm in New York!

Great diner with a mixture of locals and tourists. Very friendly staff and good food, perhaps a bit pricier than others but worth treating yourself.

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
