Fast friendly service and decent food at a good price

This lil diner was located a stones throw away from our hotel and so we visited for most of our holiday for breakfast/brunch. Staff are friendly and welcoming and you never have to wait long to be served. The menu serves a variety of dishes and portion sizes are very good value. If there is ever... read more

Your traditional American Diner. Good food, nothing fancy. Great, friendly staff. Better for Breakfast.

Locate just one block from our hotel, the Comfort Diner was an easy choice for a no-fuss breakfast upon awakening. I wasn't wowed by the food however, my Challah French Toast was certainly New York-sized but wan't cooked through and didn't taste that good. I tried my wife's pancakes and found them fairly tasteless. The service was professional and we... More

This was recommended to us and we're so glad we went! We both had the Lumberjack breakfast - pancakes, sausages or bacon, eggs. It was absolutely amazing. Best scrambled eggs ever! Very good prices. Really friendly staff. Real American experience.

The breakfast was fine. Eggs, bacon, home fries. Right across from Wyndham so you get 15% off. But the gentleman who served the food was abrupt. And it's a diner atmosphere.

This was recommended by someone for pancakes, and they were really good. I loved the endless refill coffee and the style of this place. Defo worth a visit.

We were in New York for a girls weekend. We ate breakfast at this little diner. You walk in and it's just your typical diner. But the service was great. The food was amazing and good at great prices and huge portions. We lived this little place and if we ate ever in that area again we will definitely go... More

First visit was mid morning on Saturday and the food was fantastic but the place was packed and you couldn't hear yourself think. Second visit was Thursday morning and we were first in at 730am. Staff were friendly but both the bacon and home fries were warmed up and from the day before. Very disappointing.

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.
