Best Spots for Late-Night Eats in Philadelphia

Broad Street Diner

Not fancy, but certainly friendly, this well-located diner serves as a post-party pit stop for night owls in transit between Center City and South Philly. It's best to stick to the basics here: They're known for their omelets, hash browns, and hot coffee. 1135 S. Broad Street, (215) 825-3636

Pat's King of Steaks and Geno's Steaks

Both open 24 hours, the across-the-street rivals get slammed. "Originator" Pat's, with its notoriously sloppy Cheez Whiz topping and blindingly neon-bright Geno's, with its fancy provolone, draw crowds that meet in the avenue's center, often stopping traffic just before dawn. Pat's, 1237 E. Passyunk Avenue, (215) 468-1546; Geno's, 1219 S. 9th Street, (215) 389-0659

Insomnia Cookies

Those in need of a late-night or early-morning sugar fix contact this spot to deliver fresh-baked cookies in various varieties—chocolate chunk, peanut butter, oatmeal, sugar, snickerdoodle, and more. 135 S. 13th Street, 108 S. 16th Street, 4319 Main Street, 1601 N. Broad Street, 3400 Lancaster Avenue, 3417 Spruce Street, 1084 E. Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr, (877) 63-COOKIE

David's Mai Lai Wah

Well-known among Philly's post-shift restaurant workers for years, David's dishes budget-friendly late-night eats. The experience here is no-frills, but the salt and pepper wings, roast pork noodle bowls, and walnut shrimp provide tasty sustenance. 1001 Race Street, (215) 627-2610

Masala Kitchen

There's no reason to wait until tomorrow for Indian street food. This quick-service kitchen in Center City offers Kati rolls and platters laden with curried chicken and lamb. On Friday and Saturday, they close at 3 Am. 1211 Walnut Street, (215) 309-3301

Taqueria La Prima

With a name that makes sense in South Philly only, Prima offers only tacos—and seriously great ones. Wildly accommodating hours and a super affordable price point make this storefront a late-night must. 1104 S. 9th Street, (215) 339-5000
