24-hour diner food
This Boston landmark is not notably gay, but serves food around the clock -- which will come in handy when the nearby bars issue last calls.

      Great late or early spot!
      This is an old fashioned no frills diner with a grill behind the counter. After drinking burgers or bacon and eggs, this place has that real diner atmosphere. It is rather small, so be prepared to wait a bit, unless you visit very early, before midnight or after 4 am.

      24 Hour Diner in Leather District
      Located near South Station, this tiny little diner is a good place to grab a bite. By the end of the night the place is definitely not the cleanest place, but service is quick and if you like diner food - you'll like the menu.

      Club kids, cops, commuters, Chinatown employees, late night dinners, travellers, truckers, taxi cab drivers
      My first meal when I arrived in Boston, was at this VERY unpretentious place. I had arrived after travelling from Indiana to Boston, evacuating from New Orleans to go to school at UMass Boston. The food hit the spot, and the waiter tried not to even accept payment. Fine dining it is NOT. It was LOUD, the food is what diner food should be, and yes there are loud conversations from the philosophical mumblings of Ivy Leaguers to the domestic spats of Southie white trash. But this is where the high brow and low brow meet, especially late at night when everyone is hungry and noone is having foie gras.

      Boston's friendliest 24 hour Diner
      The chocolate chip french toast and blueberry pancakes filled us up in more ways than one at this diner conveniently located 1 block from South Station. We needed a place to kill several hours in between our bus arrival and ferry to Provincetown. When we arrived around 430-5 AM and our super firenldy waitress, Liz greeted us and told us we could sit anywhere. She was very friendly and even gave us directions and advice about navigating Boston by foot! The meal and her warm personality really hit the spot.
