Places in Philly You Can Get Food 24 Hours

When you’re looking for somewhere to grab a sustaining bite on your way home from the bar, your choices in Philly are relatively limited. Most food establishments have closed their kitchens by midnight (though a few late owls do serve through 1 AM), and city Wawas number fewer every day. Only a few places stay open all day, every day, and we’ve created a handy list. The food may not be exquisite, but you’re guaranteed to find something to satisfy your latenight cravings. Check it out, below (and bookmark it in an accessible place, where partially intoxicated fingers can easily find it).

Little Pete’s
Cheap diner food in pricey Rittenhouse area. Occasionally burnt toast. (219 S. 17th St.

South Street Diner
Friendly staff, free Wi-Fi. (140 South St.)

Midtown II and III
Cheap, traditional diners. Bonus: they have liquor licenses. (122 S. 11th St.; 28 S. 18th St.)

Wawa
Hoagies are awesome. Plus so much more. (201 S Broad St.1602 S. Delaware Ave.; 518 S. 2nd St.; 912 Walnut St.; 2040 Hamilton St.; 1707 Arch St.; 3744 Spruce St.; 3604 Chestnut St.)

Oregon Diner
Classic diner with South Philly atmosphere, full bar. (302 Oregon Ave.)

Makkah Market
Middle Eastern convenience store, bookstore upstairs. Great for vegetarians. (4249 Walnut St.)

Pat’s and Geno’s
No need to say anything except that they’re open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. (Pat’s 1237 E. Passyunk Ave.; Geno’s 1219 S. 9th St.)

Melrose Diner
Cheap prices, decent food. (1501 Snyder Ave.)
