Very good diner

Fills up fast so getting there early, like before 10 am, is a good idea. Food was very good, their specialty is a womlet which is an omelet on a waffle. Staff is very friendly and prices are great...expect to pay around $12 for breakfast.

We almost walked right past this hidden gem, so easy to miss! Between my fiancée and I we had chicken noodle soup, buffalo chicken wings, sirloin steak & eggs, and raspberry pancakes. The soup was home-made an delicious; the wings were presented in a similar style to Hard Rock Cafe (with celery, carrot and blue cheese sauce), except about half... More

The Comfort Diner is a great place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. The portions are large, and I highly recommend the pancakes! The atmosphere is retro, which makes it a really interesting place to eat in. Over all, highly recommend a visit!

We were a little afraid of the Health Department "B" on the front window, but gave this little diner a try. This diner can come across as dirty and old but give it a chance. If you like diners, you will love this one. Everyone is friendly, the service is fast and the food is good. Reasonable prices and friendly... More

This place is really quaint based on an old fashioned American diner but in the centre of the City of New York. The food order was taken quickly and food arrived soon after. Everything was tasty and the staff friendly and efficient. A great find.

My wife and I were travelling with two friends on their first time to the USA, so we found this diner whilst out searching the area one evening at about 8.30-9pm in late September 2014. Having done the NY Pizza, NY Irish Pub, NY Steak, NY Rooftop and so on, we went in search of a traditional diner... I have... More

Staying in Midtown

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.
