Late Night Fast Food is so 2022
Picture this. It’s 10 pm and the cravings hit. You’re illuminated by the fridge light without a snack in sight. Maybe you’ve been out drinking or maybe you stayed in for the night (with FOMO). In a small-town county, surely all you can expect at this time of night is a fast-food drive though. Right? Wrong. We’ve got a list of stops that are open late to quench the foodie in you while also satisfying those late-night needs.
Late night dining and Howley’s go way back. This historic West Palm Beach staple is everything you could want as a midnight snack. Its retro style and diner food (but with local and organic ingredients) is reminiscent of a mom-and-pop spot you’d hit up for milkshakes. Of course, at Howley’s you can get your milkshake spiked.
Sunday – Thursday 7:00 am – 12:00 am

Dada is non-conformist and so is staying up late. They were rightly crowned the winner of The Boca Observer’s Readers’ Choice for Best Late Night Dining spot. Of course, the eclectic menu hits at all times of the day. If you’re in Delray late into the night, you’re likely already on Atlantic Ave., so why deny yourself Dada.
5:00 pm – 12:00 am
52 N Swinton Ave, Delray Beach
At ER Bradley’s late-night patrons have a dedicated menu. The Late Night menu kicks in starting at 10 p.m., serving until midnight. And it’s not skimpy, either. The Late Night menu features salads and other small plates, large plates, and even desserts.

It’s no surprise that you’ll find a pub open late every night of the week. At The Irishman, you can order from the full menu every night until midnight — you can keep drinking until 2 a.m.. Choose from Irish staples like Corned Beef and Cabbage or Bangers and Mash, or go for something classic like burgers or wings.
Monday- Friday 11:00 am – 12:00 am
Saturday & Sunday 10:00 am – 12:00 am

If you find yourself in West Palm Beach in search of a late-night bite (it’s likely) head to the West Palm Beach location of El Camino on Rosemary Avenue. If you’re wandering in Delray Beach looking for a late-night bite (also very likely) head to the Delray El Camino for the same quality, with the added benefit of a Late-Night Happy Hour. In Delray, El Camino offers reduced prices on drinks and some food items starting at 12am until 2am. We like the 50/50 (Ilegal Mezcal Joven, Blanco Tequila, fresh lime, agave) and the Espresso Martini — both for only $5 on the Late-Night Menu.

This gastrobub in Delray offers a limited late-night menu from 10pm until they close. The menu includes items like burgers, mac and cheese balls and pretzels. It’s not the most extensive, but The Office makes a great finale to a night of bar hopping. There’s nothing like a burger for a night cap.
Monday –Friday 11:00 am – Close
Saturday & Sunday 10:00 am – Close
201 E Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach
The dining room at Havana may close at 10 p.m., but the walk-up window is open 24 hours and seven days a week. With the best Cuban food in town — they’ve won awards to prove it — there’s no time like the present to give it a try. In the middle of the night works too, though.
6801 S. Dixie Hwy, West Palm Beach
Delray sure is buzzing with late-night dining options. Another with a dedicated menu, The OG, can be found adjacent to Atlantic Ave (again, no shocker). At The OG you have a good amount of options including the usual suspects like burgers and wings, but you can also opt for items like street tacos or a flatbread. Save room for dessert too.
Monday – Friday: 4:00 pm – 2:00 am
Saturday & Sunday: 3:00 pm – 2:00 am

Lulus Cafe’s and Cocktails
Lulu’s Late Night Bites menu features Bang Bang Wings, Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos, Pork Belly Bao Buns, and Shrimp Boa Buns. They’re not going for quantity of options, but we do endorse the quality.
