Does Comfort Trump All?

When I am truly craving a specific cuisine or dish, I have been known to travel over an hour on a subway or walk for several miles to obtain my craving. However, lately I've noticed that I would rather eat my 2nd or even 3rd or 4th food choice if I could eat in comfort. Case in point: I have wanted to eat brunch solo this past weekend. I was craving a particular diner but the last thing in the world I wanted was to have to sit at the counter or in a tiny booth- especially when I know that during the week I could get a comfy full booth and linger over coffee and my newspaper. I walked past the diner, saw the line and just kept walking until I found another place to eat where I would not feel pressure to leave in a hurry, and where I also wouldn't feel squashed by other diners. Do you do the same?
