Great Breakfast in a classic diner setting. Friendly staff. Wife had pancakes and the rancheros were really good. We will be back on our next visit to NYC.

I ate dinner there last night with my husband and daughter. The food was fine but nothing special. My husband ordered the chicken pot pie and it tasted like chicken soup with a crust. For $17 it was disappointing. I ordered the grilled cheese and that was surprisingly really good. Overall it was fine but based on the reviews we... More

Convenient location to the Wyndham MIdtown 45th as it is right across the street. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but I recommend the breakfast. Great portions and not expensive.

This place is super busy! Portion size is medium. Service is a little slow. But I think it's because there's so many people and few servers. Food quality is decent. What you can expect of brunch. Not your typical greasy filling American breakfast.

Our receptionist suggested it and we went for breakfast. The food is really good. Good value for money. I love their buttermilk pancakes and the omelette. Don't miss it, just around the corner of Central Station.

We ordered 3 dishes between us, 1 Eggs with toast and hash and the other salmon bagels. We also shared some of the Lemon Ricotta pancakes, well worth a try! However our experience was somewhat tainted at the end. We received our bill which totalled around $50 plus taxes and an 18% gratuity which was added for us - please... More

Hubbie had the special mushroom spinach quesadilla with chicken...so much more than a typical NYC diner! Loved my chicken soup and root beer float. Excellent food-fresh, tasty and good value considering the area. Attentive staff and charming decor. Loved it!

We visited the Comfort Diner for brunch and it was packed. We waited a short time to be seated but it was worth it. The food (omelette and eggs Benedict) was very economical by NY standards.

We found this diner by chance. My god was it the best place we could have discovered! We ended up eating there every morning. Breakfast is the best in town. Great variety, full of flavour, absolutely scrumptious!!! Setting is superb- like something off a film! All the staff are super friendly and will go above and beyond to make your... More

This is a great way to experience a real American Diner. We had breakfast here twice. Homemade pancakes and maple syrup meant with coffee and juice was great. It is rustic but that is what you want from this type of place. Great food and good service.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
