It's past last-call at the bar you're at, and suddenly you realize that you're starving. If you're like me, you prefer not to eat street meat on the curb while you wait sadly for your very late Uber.

Luckily, you live in Toronto and there are several late night diners that will be waiting for you after your night out. Check them out below.

1. 7 West Cafe // 7 Charles St W.

Open 24/7, rain or shine, 7 West prides itself in their capacity to facilitate optimal customer service to even the most nocturnal guests.


2. Fran's // Multiple Locations

Most locations are open 24 hours, and the rest are open late enough. Fran's is a traditional late night go-to for Torontonians, and has been around for almost 70 years now.


3. Insomnia // 563 Bloor St W.

Insomnia is simultaneously the bar and after-bar spot, i.e. it has both a DJ and a late night menu. You won't have to beg or drag your friends to the nearest Shawarma spot any longer, they can stay all night dancing while you sit nearby gorging on your burger happily. Insomnia also offers higher-end options late into the night, including steak and fish tacos.

4. Thompson Diner // 550 Wellington St W.

Some of the best food you'll eat any hour of the day, but we all know that food tastes exponentially better past midnight. Thompson Diner uses this knowledge to its advantage and has become every Toronto partygoer's Friday night finish line.


5. The Lakeview Restaurant // 1132 Dundas St W.

Since 1932, Lakeview has catered great product at great prices to an abundant crowd, 24 hours a day.


6. The Grille // 1596 The Queensway

More of a restaurant/grill than a diner, but it serves food 24/7 and that's good enough for us!


7. Bloor Street Diner // 55 Bloor St W.

You shouldn't be too surprised to find out that Toronto's chicest late-night diner is in such a chic spot. Open 'til 2am on Friday and Saturday.

A cute 50's style diner with reasonably priced fare. Open 24/7!
