If comfort is a concern, consider putting a cushion on your bench. Some companies sell cushions already made or you can custom order them. If you're handy with fabric, you can opt to make a customized cushion yourself. Most fabric stores have poly-foam that you can use for the padding and it is pretty easy to shape.
When you are shopping for new furniture for your home it is important to think about what the furniture will be used for and just who will be using it. This is especially true when you are planning to buy a bench specifically used for the dining room. Some of your guests may be uncomfortable using a backless bench to eat a meal at. Think about the guests who will be sitting there and ask yourself if you would ask them to eat on a stool. If you would not, then maybe a backless bench will not work either.
Finally, if you put a premium on storage, consider getting a chest bench with built-in storage. These work best in a kitchen nook where the bench itself doesn't need to be moved since it can get heavy when filled. This is a great place to store your linens, seasonal kitchen décor or serving ware, holiday plates, candles and other things that you don't always need, but need nearby.
