1132 Dundas St W

The Lakeview

2 280 Spadina Avenue DragonCity Unit A

The Famous Owl of Minerva

At The Famous Owl of Minerva, you'll find the type of nourishing, wholesome food you should be eating daily. Happily, it's also loaded with savoury flavour, and filling enough to tide you over until breakfast. With so many options, you may want to order a few extra dishes to tote home.

The Cloak Bar

The Cloak Bar

A secluded, sister speakeasy to Marben Restaurant, it's no wonder that The Cloak Bar serves great bites. Settle into the moody space and enjoy a sampling of snacks from the menu.

218 Adelaide St W

Smoke's Poutinerie

Smoke's Poutinerie

If, after too many wobbly pops only poutine will do, direct yourself toward Smoke's for some of the heartiest versions out there.

For one last glass of wine, accompanied by something stellar, Paris Paris has the table you seek. On the menu, find cheese and charcuterie, seafood, salads and, hefty, crackly onion rings fried to the perfect hue. In other words, the perfect late-night nibble.

1214 Queen St W

Melody Bar

Melody Bar

Though Melody Bar serves a tempting assortment of snacks until late, don't be surprised if you're too distracted by the karaoke, dancing and all-out merriment around you to focus on the food. Still, with many memorable bites on offer, you'll want to give chef Richard Singh's menu its moment before joining in the fun.

503 College St

LoPan

LoPan

Located above Dailo, LoPan features a similar menu of new-Asian snacks, with creative cocktails to enjoy alongside. Chef Nick Liu's Big Mac Bao is reason enough to stop in when you need a late-night pick-me-up.

797 College St

Bar Isabel

Bar Isabel

Open seven days a week until 11 p.m., Bar Isabel turns snack time, into tapas time. Trust us when we say, the latter is infinitely more elegant and satisfying. Nibble on pan con tomate, patatas bravas, and the fanciest tin fish money can buy, and rest easy knowing you won't go to bed hungry.
