Our go-to spots for late-night snacks, dranks, and shelter from the douche-nozzles.


"Phò mile"
Somerset St. W (between Bronson to Preston)

Ottawa boasts some of the best Phò in the country. We're not even joking. Complex broths, fresh ingredients, and half a dozen joints are open until 4am. 

$ / Vietnamese soup

Oz Kafé 
361 Elgin St.
(613) 234-0907

Ottawa's original late-night, restaurant industry hang. Hunger-sating menu served right til 2am. Prone to spontaneous dance parties.

$$ / Unpretentious bistro food


El Camino
380 Elgin St, Ottawa
(613) 422-2800

Best take-out window on Elgin Street. Snag out-of-this-world tacos til 2am. 

$$ / "Mexican"


Elgin Street Diner
374 Elgin St.
(613) 237-9700

Located smack dab between The Manx and El Camino, this is likely every out-of-towner's experience of late night food in Ottawa. Offering a hungover-preventing poutine, anytime-breakfast, and a plethora of greasy spoon classics, we're likely to hit this local classic in a pinch. And say what you will, the servers here are MACHINES. Lastly, the milkshakes are a god-send.

$$ / Diner staples & crazy fucking drunk people

The Manx Pub
370 Elgin St.

Ottawa's infamous arts pub. Massive draught list, knock-out scotches, and where you're likely going to end up here anyway. Late-night snacks til 12:30am or so.

$$ / Gourmet pub food for the best price in town

Union Local 613
315 Somerset St W.
(613) 231-1010

Home to the raddest basement speak-easy in town. Thursday-Saturday, you can hang out nice and late.
