Not long ago, late-night food in Toronto was served by a small culinary cartel: fast-food restaurants, fluorescent-lit noodle shops and decrepit diners that made all their money between midnight and 4 a.m. Toronto’s more respected restaurants stopped serving by 10 o’clock, and night owls were forced to sate themselves with sloppy cheeseburgers, limp all-day breakfast platters and, worst-case-scenario, deep-fried mystery meat from 7-Eleven. Over the past year, though, late-night food in Toronto (or at least Toronto’s west side) has become the foundation for its own scene—one that’s exploded with new after-hours options. The snacks are still greasy and informal, but the ingredients are fresher, the flavours more complex and the surroundings way cooler than the post-bar haunts of yore. Here, our 15 favourite places to eat and drink after 11 p.m.
