Every Notable 24 Hour Restaurant in Montreal, Mapped

From 3 a.m. poutines to 5 a.m. bagels

View as Map

While much of Montreal shuts down past a certain hour at night, a scattering of restaurants keep the city fed after that, right through to breakfast hours. Ordered by location, the following are the go-to stops for a bite to eat after a long night — not counting any chain restaurants like McDonald’s, A&W, and beyond.

Note that most places on this map are fairly low-key diners or take-out spots — those looking for a slightly more formal late-night meal should take a look at Eater’s guide to late night dining in Montreal.

1. Paulo & Suzanne

5501 Boul Gouin O, Montréal
QC H4J 1C8, Canada
(514) 336-5561
Visit Website

This 1950’s style diner — complete with checkered floors, vinyl chairs, and a long retro snack counter — prides itself on being a neighbourhood gathering place. While its large menu serves every diner staple, like burgers, hotdogs, and grilled cheese, Paulo & Suzanne is known best for its poutine and its 24-hour breakfast (including crepes and omelettes).

2. Salerno

Copy Link
2411 Avenue Charland, Montréal
QC H1Z 1B9, Canada
(514) 384-9142
Visit Website

Named after the founder’s hometown, Salerno is an authentic Italian bakery with a vast array of cakes, breads, pizzas, and grab-n-go bites. On the sweeter side of things, Salerno sells cannoli, tiramisu, and doughnuts; on the savoury side, it serves calzones, sandwiches, and deli meats.

3. Chez La Mère

Copy Link
4028 Rue Masson, Montréal
QC H1X 1T8, Canada
(514) 725-9391
Visit Website

Right next to the Botanical Gardens, Chez La Mere is a family diner with an enormous menu items including and beyond the traditional greasy spoon (think: Chinese food, surf-n-turf, and kebabs). Portions tend to come large here, and if you find yourself with late night cravings, but aren’t in the area, Chez La Mere delivers daily between 11 a.m. and 5 a.m.

4. Miami Déli

Copy Link
3090 Rue Sherbrooke E, Montréal
QC H1W 1B5, Canada
(514) 525-0600
Visit Website

Perhaps more exciting than Miami Déli’s array of comfort food is the interior. This vibrant Florida-themed diner is decorated with plastic sharks and alligators, blue and yellow ceramic wall tiles, and fake palm trees. The menu is perhaps less tropical: barbecued meats, pizza, pasta, and seafood, much of which is also available for delivery around Rosemont and Hochelaga from 3 p.m. to 5 a.m.

5. La Banquise

Copy Link
994 Rue Rachel E, Montréal
QC H2J 2J3, Canada
(514) 525-2415
Visit Website

A go-to for poutine (and one that draws a hefty tourist crowd at that), La Banquise has something for any dietary preference — as long as you’re happy with poutine. Patrons can swap their meat gravy for a vegan sauce or a tomato meat sauce, and pile any number of toppings on their fries, curds, and gravy: think guacamole, smoked meat, or red onion. But perhaps the best part of La Banquise is its energy, as waiters and line cooks alike dance along to vibrant jams at all hours of the day and night. Be warned: Banquise draws line-ups late into the night, especially after bars close.

6. Le Fameux

Copy Link
4500 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal
QC H2J 2L3, Canada
(514) 845-8732
Visit Website

Another vintage diner, this one boasting smoked meat, Fameux’s is conveniently located alongside much of the Mont-Royal and St-Denis nightlife. Its menu leans somewhat towards the breakfast side of things, serving a diversity of egg dishes, hearty breakfast sandwiches, crepes, and pancakes make this a good pit stop on late nights that become early mornings. Note: open 24 hours on Thursday to Saturday nights only; Fameux closes at 3:30 a.m. other nights.

7. Chez Claudette

Copy Link
351 Avenue Laurier E, Montréal
QC H2T 1G7, Canada
(514) 279-5173
Visit Website

With a bright yellow exterior that’s hard to miss when walking down Laurier Avenue, Chez Claudette is a homey Mile End haven for weekend night owls and party-goers alike. Its menu consists of affordably-priced poutines, burgers, and omelettes in generous portions. Note: open 24 hours on Thursday to Saturday nights only; Chez Claudette closes at midnight other nights.

8. Fairmount Bagel

Copy Link
74 Avenue Fairmount O, Montréal
QC H2T 2M2, Canada
(514) 272-0667
Visit Website

As the first bagel bakery in Montreal, Fairmount serves these hand-rolled dough treats in flavours including onion, all-dressed, and chocolate chip. With standard sesame bagels priced at less than a dollar a piece, Fairmount makes for a cheap, speedy stop on the way home. As any good Montrealer should know, bagels can only be bought to go: patrons must dress them at home or outside on the street.

9. St-Viateur Bagel

Copy Link
158 Rue Saint Viateur O, Montréal
QC H2T 2L3, Canada
(514) 270-2972
Visit Website

A block north of its counterpart (or some would say its competition), St-Viateur bagel offers a similar no-frills bagel experience to Fairmount. The difference between the two is subtle, and a point of contention for many Montrealers, but in any case, St-Viateur makes an equally quick, similarly affordable pit stop for hand-rolled bagels in many flavours. A tip: These bagels are best ordered warm, and plain sesame have more often come straight out of the oven, while the fancier counterparts tend to be made just once a day.

10. Le Resto du Village

Copy Link
1310 Rue Wolfe, Montréal
QC H2L 3J3, Canada
(514) 524-5404
Visit Website

Located within proximity of much of the Gay Village nightlife, le Resto du Village prides itself on its 24-hour breakfast menu of pancakes, french toast, sandwiches, and omelettes. It also has a range of poutines available as a main or a side.

11. Milton B

Copy Link
3498 Av du Parc, Montréal
QC H2X 2H5, Canada
(514) 379-1001
Visit Website

As a 24-hour cafe located in the Milton-Parc neighbourhood, Milton B is more of a hub for McGill students working late into the night rather than a spot to get drunk food. Its coffee and pastry menu is vast, and there’s also a solid selection of sandwiches and salads, to ensure that night owls remain fed through all hours of the evening and early morning.

12. Joe’s Panini

Copy Link
1404 Rue Drummond, Montréal
QC H3G 1V9, Canada
(514) 843-8057
Visit Website

Joe’s Panini is a quick, affordable spot to grab a bite on the way home from a downtown night out. Joe’s knows its specialty and sticks to it: The menu has a broad range of sandwiches — Philly Cheesesteak, gyro, and tofu ginger paninis, to name a few — but little else. While seating room is minimal, service is fast, making this an easy spot to grab a sandwich before jumping in a cab.
