Discover NYC – A Guide to Indie Businesses

Discover New York City is a guide to the local independent businesses that are the heart and soul of NYC. Support indie businesses!

I love the independent businesses in New York, they are the heart and soul of the city! In this section you will find bookstores, cafés, restaurants, arts & crafts markets and more. It's an ongoing project to list the best of indie New York so visit often to discover the real New York City. Experience the hidden gems and places that New Yorkers frequent. I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like.


Comfort Diner, Midtown, Manhattan

I've discovered a new favorite diner! They aren't new. But I don't know how long they've been around. The breakfast was fabulous. They were really nice and very efficient I might add. That is not always true of other diners. Also, I found that their quality and prices were really good. I will be returning there soon. It has a very traditional diner look as well!
