New York City's Cosmic Coffee Shop and Diner. The Best Food In The Universe.

Regular Hours

General Info:
The Cosmic Diner is the Theatre District's Diner! Our decor is typical 70s diner and the food & the service is excellent. Both locals & tourists love our breakfast and brunch menus especially the Challah French toast & our 3 egg omelets. The prices, especially for this area, are excellent. Cosmic Diner has perhaps the best French fries in midtown, if not the city. Always delivered hot and really salty. Attentive, friendly and efficient servers bring portion sizes that are very generous at reasonable prices. Our menu was extensive. Dinner offerings include steaks, seafood, pastas and salads all of which can be modified to your taste. If you order to-go over the phone it will be ready when you show up 10 minutes later, piping hot.

Stay away from this place. Especially if you want to enjoy a meal without the owner/manager hounding you to hurry up and finish your meal so he can seat another party. I was a woman by myself, had ordered a full lunch and was finishing my tea when this nasty man decided I had been there long enough. I was there under an hour. The other diners around me were shocked as was the wait staff by their boss's rudeness. Apparently he acts like this all the time. He's all about the $$ and...view more not courtesy.

Best early AM diner for foodies

Doesn't matter where about town I am I always end the night/start the day at Cosmic. They have a great selection of creative and gourmet omelettes ( my favorite is the California omelette with avocado) and the waffles are perfect every time (crispy on the outside and moist on the inside). The service is prompt and the food is ready quickly which is crucial to hungry/drunk people at 5 am. Lastly, the place is very clean and the staff are friendly people who seem to take pride in thier w...view moreork (we usual have the same waitor, an older hispanic gentleman, who loves to give recommendations). It's hard to find good quality food that is both tasty and healthy (or naughty: the pies are awesome, too!) at ungodly hours of the morning but Cosmic seems to always deliver.view less

Very cool for a diner!

The food selection was great, big portions and moderately priced. The service was great and it's an awesome location.

Cosmically Weird and Spendy

I'll give it to Cosmic for the pros: solid space, good portions, and open 24 hours. The bad: pricey diner food, pretentious (almost apathetic) service, subpar food, and funky decor. It was an experience I'm not likely to duplicate as the service was the worst.
