The city that never sleeps is also the city that never stops eating. Our 24-hour access to food is, after all, the reasons so many New Yorkers couldn't imagine living anywhere else. But just because you’re hungry after midnight doesn’t mean you should settle for soggy diner French fries or questionable bar food and snacks. From piping hot empanadas to shwarma and pastries, these neighborhood late-night delivery spots deliver to your doorsteps.

  • Bay Ridge

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a cup of gourmet coffee and a delicious baked good—Black Forest Cake anyone? —at Omonia. The popular Manhattan cafe recently opened a Brooklyn outpost and, while they serve diner food as well, the desserts (caramel cake, oreo cheesecake) are the way to go, with delivery until 2:30am.

Midtown East: Morning Star Cafe

  • Diners
  • Midtown East

Indulging in seemingly every type of food imaginable, at all hours of the day, is the stuff NYC is made of. Waffles? Check. Huevos Rancheros? Check. Teriyaki sticks, stuffed grape leaves and linguini with clam sauce? Check, check and check.

Upper West Side: Insomnia Cookies
  • Restaurants
  • Bakeries
  • Upper West Side

It’s called Insomnia for a reason. The most famous late-night sweets in New York require a $6 minimum (plus a $1.99-$2.99 delivery fee) but will bring a box of up to a few dozens to your doorstep as late as 2:45am. You know, in case a bunch of cookie monsters showed up to your apartment for an after-party.
