The Best 24 Hour Restaurants in Toronto

The best 24 hour restaurants in Toronto are beacons of nocturnal eating, operating on what feels like eternal hours. Most of these late night institutions keep their doors open seven days a week, or at least on the weekend, when midnight meals are most necessary. 

Here are the best 24 hour restaurants in Toronto. 


Lakeview Restaurant

Lakeview Restaurant

Sober, drunk, somewhere in between—Dundas West’s 24-hour diner is for everyone in any state, as long as you come hungry for Disco Fries. It's not 24/7 but it's open all-day on weekends. Regret in life is inevitable so why not pair 2 a.m. brunch with a boozy milkshake. 

Perfect Chinese Restaurant

Perfect Chinese Restaurant

This legendary plaza joint by Sheppard East and Brimley is only for Scarborough’s most serious nightowls. Get steaming hot dim sum in the wee hours of the morning or go full Chinese banquet mode and get some fried rice or lobster, all for cheap.

If your ideal date night is a 3 a.m. affair, look no further than this longtime restaurant on Charles Street. Spanning multiple floors, this romantic getaway serves everything from ravioli to brunch all day, every day.

Fran's Restaurant

Fran's Restaurant

This diner chain is still going strong since its inception more than 80 years ago. The rooftop at the College Street location is only open until 10 p.m. these days but the rest of the restaurant remains open for hash and flapjacks.


Vesta Lunch

Dupont Street’s iconic greasy spoon used to be 24/7 but these days it only stays open overnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Vesta has been going strong since the 1950s so we’re grateful it’s still open at all.


Huh Ga Ne

Huh Ga Ne

It’s never too late for samgyeopsal-gui. There are plenty of Korean BBQ options by Yonge and Finch but people flock to Huh Ga Ne to feast on banchan and grilled pork belly, with options to sit on the floor.

The Markham Station

The Markham Station

Holding down the corner of Sheppard East and Markham Road is this longtime plaza diner serving huge plates of eggs and bacon to anyone who walks through their doors. It’s a certified Scarborough classic.

Owl of Minerva Yonge St.

The Yonge and Finch location of this legendary Korean chain was the first to start it all. Look for the tiny yellow restaurant and the sign with the lady in a graduation cap (Minerva, is that you?) for kamjatang and bulgogi.

Commisso Brothers

Commisso Brothers

It’s late, you’re starving—what you really need is a veal sandwich from this Italian hot table on Kincort Street. Parts corner shop, restaurant and grocery store, a midnight drive through Castlefield Design District just isn’t complete without a pitstop here.
