The desk clerk at our hotel recommended The Comfort Diner and we are so glad he did! The place is clean, the staff is friendly and the service is quick. My husband had the challah french toast and I had the BBC omelet. Both were delicious. We will definitely go back the next time we are in the city.

My husband and I recently stayed in the city close to the Comfort Diner. Our original plan was to try a different breakfast spot each morning, but after our first trip to the Comfort Diner we were hooked! We ate breakfast here three days in a row. The service is excellent and even the owner is extremely friendly and talked... More

Whenever someone asks me where I want to go for breakfast when in Manhattan, I always tell them, please let's go to the Comfort Diner. I'm a big fan of buttermilk pancakes made from scratch and you can tell that's how their pancakes are made! I usually get them with fresh, mixed berries and they give you real Maple Syrup!... More

I have now been to the Comfort Diner a couple of times and can't recommend it enough for a relaxed breakfast or brunch. It's exactly what you picture when you think city diner so I think it will especially appeal to Brits! We all had the Lumberjack and coffee (buttermilk pancakes, eggs and bacon). Everything was excellent and the service... More

At first the waitress was shabby but she straightened out. The food was great very fresh, no complaints at all. I cannot wait to return, when in NYC this will definitely be my spot

Recently stayed in Midtown at Hyatt48, found this dinner a short walk from the hotel. We new we were in for a treat when we walked in and the folks walking out had their luggage and told us they came directly from the airport. It had everything you look for in a diner, great food, great atmosphere, friendly and prompt... More

If you are staying at Wyndham Midtown 45, this is the place you need to go for breakfast as it is just across the street. The decor is just what you'd expect of a mid-town diner. The service is most excellent, and the food is great. If you are lucky enough to be there for a weekend, get the lemon... More

Food was fantastic and once ordered the food arrived extremely fast. Very delicious best scrambled eggs I have ever had. However our waiter was less than average. It took him over 15 mins to take our order and he couldn't even take the time to let me finish my sentence or write my order down resulting in the wrong order.... More

Me and my girlfriend went to the comfort diner for breakfast in 30th December. We were greeted straight away and from start to finish everything was very quick and easy. My girlfriend ordered pancakes and she said that they we're the best ever, I order the all American and the bacon and sausage were cooked to perfection! If your looking... More

If you've never been to New York then the Comfort Diner is just like you imagine a NY diner should be. You enter and are greeted warmly before being seated in either a booth or at 'the counter'. Upon being presented with the menu you are overwhelmed with the range of options that you have to choose from, but choose... More
