Find the best 24-hour food in the city

View as Map

Many people in the city are content, and able, to keep more traditional dining hours: breakfast in the morning, dinner before 10 p.m., or maybe some late night snacks or even a meal. But there are also those night owls up studying into the early hours of the morning, the graveyard shift workers looking for a 4 a.m. dinner, and those who have closed down a bar and realized they desperately need some tacos to soak up all the booze they’ve just downed. In any case, the true 24 hour diners, cafes, and taco shops are few and far between in Portland, but they are out there. Here are the 10 most essential spots that are open for dining throughout the entire day and night.

(Note the points on this late-night dining map are not ranked; rather, they are organized geographically.)

1. Portlander Cascade Grill

10350 N Vancouver Way
Portland, OR
(503) 283-1111
Visit Website

Part of the Jubitz truck stop franchise, The Portlander Cascade Grill serves exactly what’s expected from a pitstop, including a hearty all-day breakfast, all-you-can eat biscuits and gravy for $14, a French dip, burgers, fish and chips, chicken fried steak... it goes on.

2. Javier's Tacos

Copy Link
121 N Lombard St
Portland, OR
(503) 286-3186

The salvation of many a late-night binge in the reaches of North Portland, the no-frills Javier’s Tacos serves, appropriately, a menu of tacos large and small, as well as other Mexican-American staples such as tortas, tostadas, and enchiladas. For the truly indulgent, the carne asada fries are a massive platter of crinkle fries topped with heaps of meat and cheese. The shop also serves a variety of Mexican doughnuts and pastries for those craving sugar.

3. Shari's Cafe and Pies

Copy Link
11335 NE Airport Way
Portland, OR
(503) 254-5041
Visit Website

This pinnacle of old-school, all-day chain diners has locations country-wide, but actually originated in Hermiston, Oregon in 1978. All of its locations are 24/7, including a spot near the airport, helpful for those red eye flights. The other locations are mostly on the fringes of the city. All serve breakfast, pies, burgers, and rib-sticking items like country-fried steak.

4. Voodoo Doughnut Too

Copy Link
1501 NE Davis St
Portland, OR
(503) 235-2666
Visit Website

An offshoot of the infamously long-lined doughnut shop, the larger, seated location just across the river boasts far shorter lines and service that extends throughout the entire day. The 24-hour service makes it a choice spot to pick up a last minute bucket of donuts on the way to a very early office meeting, or a place to pound black coffee and spike your blood sugar even more after a night out.

5. The Roxy

Copy Link
1121 SW Stark St
Portland, OR
(503) 223-9160
Visit Website

The best and only 24-hour diner downtown, The Roxy has been a late-night stomping ground for the weary and bedraggled downtown crowd for years now. Filled with an eclectic array of celebrity portraits, it’s an essential place to wind down from a night on the town, work off a hangover before an early shift, or watch a wild night unfold.

6. Original Hotcake And Steak House

Copy Link
1002 SE Powell Blvd
Portland, OR
(503) 236-7402
Visit Website

Ask a Portlander where to go after the bars close, chances are they will suggest the window-lined, counter-service diner The Original Hotcake House, in equal parts praise and derision. The question of, “If it’s open all day, every day, when do they get a chance to clean the grills,” should be put out of thought, and replaced with the question of “how many pancakes in the stack should I order?” The answer is four, with butter liberally applied.

7. Tik Tok Restaurant

Copy Link
3330 SE 82nd Ave
Portland, OR
(503) 775-9564
Visit Website

With a classic-diner vibe, Tik Tok serves a robust menu of “home-style food,” which means classic American breakfast staples, fish and chips, meatloaf, steaks, fried chicken, and pasta dishes. It does so at both its 82nd Avenue location as well as out on 112th and Division all day, every day. It even serves alcoholic drinks, though those go away from about 2 a.m. to 7 a.m., when alcohol sales are prohibited.

8. Banning's Restaurant & Pie House

Copy Link
11477 SW Pacific Hwy
Tigard, OR
(503) 244-2558
Visit Website

A common sight for anyone traveling west on Highway 99, the family-friendly diner Banning’s has been open for 40 years now, most of which has been 24 hours a day save Christmas, when it’s closed, and Thanksgiving, when it closes at noon. In the classic diner, pies slowly spin on a rotating display case, ready to be served alongside a massive menu of American diner classics, from three-egg omelettes to stacked club sandwiches and fluffy Belgian waffles.

9. Rigoberto's Taco Shop

Copy Link
15855 SE McLoughlin Blvd
Portland, OR
(503) 659-8124
Visit Website

A red-and-tan brick exterior make this 24-hour taco shop out on McLoughlin an easy find, and the illustrated menus above the counter make it easy to order no matter the state of mind. Rigoberto's serves massive burritos for less than $7, alongside tortas, enchiladas, and combination platters.
