Oh, there’s no better time for late night food in Edmonton than in the summer. Whether you’re wrapping up after a concert, treating yourself to a little post-party meal, or even diving in to some second dinner (no judgement here), there are quite a few ways to enjoy the apres-dark scene in the city. And of course, we’ve rounded up our top picks just for you!

Here are the best spots for late night food in Edmonton.


Joining the Bar Clementine and Woodwork family, Leopard is the place to be for some delicious pizza, bar snacks, and yes, even drinks. It might not be the latest late night option on this list, but still works perfect for an after-concert bite on the weekend.

Where: 14053 West Block Drive

This is one of two spots we picked where you get to keep the party going while eating. El Cortez is no stranger to busy weekends, especially since they’ve got a club of sorts in the basement. But hey, maybe a shot of tequila is the perfect way to cap off three tacos?

Hours: Sunday to Wednesday, 3PM-10PM, Thursday, 3PM-12AM, Friday, 3PM-1AM, Saturday, 12PM-1AM
Where: 8230 Gateway Blvd NW

The Next Act

Burgers and fries, buckos! The Next Act is yet another institution of a spot that walks the line between late-night diner and hip eatery. What’s more surprising about that is they’ve also been around a couple of decades. Most importantly, these folks have that poutine you’re craving.

Hours: Monday to Thursday, 11AM-12AM, Friday, 11AM-1AM, Saturday, 10AM-1AM and Sunday, 10AM-12AM
Where: 8224 104 St NW

Whether grabbing takeout banh-mi or sitting down for a bowl of pho, once the wave of Vietnamese food cravings hits you there’s no escaping it. Embrace it instead with a trip to Miss Saigon. Not only do they have great hours, but they’re also one of the highest-rated in the city!

Hours: Sunday to Thursday, 11AM-12AM and Friday/Saturday, 11AM-2:30AM
Where: 10355 78 Ave NW

If we don’t mention at least one spot for donair in the city, then this late night food guide to Edmonton doesn’t exist. Luckily, Cosmic is here for us (and you), with a location downtown and one in Strathcona that are open well past midnight each and every night.

When: Varies per location
Where: 8611 109 St NW and 10412 102 Ave

All Happy Family Restaurant

We can’t forget how good some early (EARLY!) morning Chinese food can taste. House fried rice, some dumplings, and maybe even a little peach chicken to round things off. Like all Chinese restaurants, this is definitely best experienced when dining with a large group.

When: Daily, 11AM-2AM
Where: 10011 106 Avenue NW

Now, the next time you’re craving some great late-night food in Edmonton, you can look to this handy guide. We’re probably going to bookmark it ourselves. What can we say, we’re proud of these picks!
