First time to The Comfort Diner and we'll be back! Lemon Ricotta Pancakes w/blueberries was recommended and I will order again! They only serve them on the weekends. Yum! Fun atmosphere and friendly staff! A must go to breakfast place!

The breakfast rush was just ending when I came in around 9 on a weekday. I had good service and my food was very good. It was a touch greasy but geez it's a diner. It was a filling meal that I need before I headed to LaGuardia. I enjoyed it and will be back.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes - Corned Beef Hash or the standard breakfast of poached eggs, bacon, and pancakes - and oh boy are they GREAT pancakes! Best I've ever tasted! $10.95-$12.95. Or maybe you'll skip that and go with Oatmeal with raisins, cranberries, walnuts and brown sugar $4.95 to keep you and your wallet fit. Whichever you choose, I recommend this... More

Three friends and I stopped at the Comfort Diner for a big breakfast before heading out to explore the city. We had a hilarious and helpful waitress named Maria-Maria who recommended a couple of dishes--including Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberries and Red Flannel Hash--both of which were delicious. I had Eggs Benedict and it was yummy! I will return for... More

Whilst visiting new york my mum and I decided we would like to visit an authentic American diner and after reading the reviews we decided that this was the place for us. BIG MISTAKE, the food was disgusting and the plates and cutlery were chipped and dirty! My mum had a BLT sandwich in which the bread was stale and... More

I returned for breakfast this morning after a positive experience several years ago, not good this time. I ordered the Country breakfast, eggs over easy, biscuits and gravy with grits. Eggs came with one broken and cooked hard, so little gravy I had to ask for more and the biscuits were hard as rocks. Will not return.

After I read the reviews of Comfort Diner, I quickly made my way there for my first NYC breakfast during a recent trip. I could not finish my breakfast as the food was so greasy. My stomach did not settle down until early afternoon. The server was brisk and sloshed my coffee into the saucer without an apology. Yes the... More

Went here for breakfast as it was across the street from where we were staying and was very convenient. Vinyl and chrome decor with linoleum that sets the diner feel. Great breakfast sandwich. They have specials that include coffee and juice for just over 10$ that we found to be a fair price

Nothing better than finding a great place for Sunday brunch that's authentic and slightly away from the tourist crowds, yet not too far away. Great food, fast and very friendly service. Will definitely visit again.
