Union 613

(Wednesday to Saturday – 2am)

Union 613 has a tasty late night menu, complete with chicken wing specials (including surprises like peanut butter and jelly flavour or fish sauce (our personal favourite)) and drink deals.

The Fry

(Sunday to Thursday – 12am / Friday and Saturday – 2am)

Korean Fried Chicken under a flatscreen television playing K-POP videos, it certainly doesn’t feel like you’re on Elgin Street.

Full on a Tuesday for good reason, @eatelcamino never disappoints! 🙏 #mexicanfood

El Camino

(Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday 12am / Thursday to Saturday – 2 am)

The best tacos in town (and betel leaves, and churros) are served up late from both indoors and their takeout window.

feels nice to have a real burger again #thekingeddy #kelovesall

The King Eddy

(Monday 1am, Tuesday 1am, Wednesday 12am, open 24 hours Thursday to Sunday)

There are a few late night diners that could be listed here but we prefer King Eddy’s for their quality eats, like their King Eddy Burger and the Northern Fried Chicken and Waffles. They’ve recently started to stay open for 24 hours on weekends and is our go-to in the Byward Market.

The Manx

(late night menu usually ends around 12:30)

We love the Manx’s cozy vibes and their food is deceptively good. Their late night menu is typically served up until 12-12:30, but we’d stick around longer to enjoy a few beers.

New Pho Bo Go La

(Monday-Friday 2am / Saturday-Sunday 4am)

Fragrant, flavourful broths and sodium are a time-tested way to prevent hangovers. We prefer our fix from New Pho Bo Go La.

(open 24 hours)

Montreal-style bagels with all sorts of fixins, they’re open 24 hours and cannot be beat for 4 am eats near Lansdowne.

Two Six {Ate}

(open until 2am every night except Tuesday)

Tasty share plates that are somehow still available all the way until 2 am.

A feast fit for a queen (and an entire royal family) at #shawarmapalace.

Shawarma Palace

(Sunday-Wednesday 1 am / Thursday 2 am / Friday-Saturday 3 am)

Ottawa is Canada’s destination for Shawarma, so there’s really no better way to complete your night. Shawarma Palace is open late, serving up their famous shawarma with next level garlic sauce.

We are ready for you OTTAWA! #Shawarmasking

Shawarma King

(Monday-Wednesday 2am / Sunday and Thursday 3am / Friday-Saturday 4am)

When you’re out in Centretown and you wander by Shawarma King late at night, you’ll be sure to see a line of characters. Tasty shawarma served up late, get the garlic potatoes if you’re not going to be talking in someone’s close proximity for the next 16-24 hours.
