Enjoyable Breakfast

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... read 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.

I had just arrived in NY on a business trip and was starving. I was looking for a good cheap place to have breakfast today and came across The Comfort Diner. I walked in and thought someone would give me some direction on seating. I waited there for a few minutes and the hostess finally came and told me where... More

As Jimmy Fallon would say, "Now that's what I'm talking about!!" We are staying across the street from The Comfort Diner at the Wyndham Midtown 45, so we sauntered approximately 50 feet to this humble looking restaurant, hoping that the generally positive reviews would hold true. We were not disappointed. Our server was funny and courteous (gracefully backing away when... More
