5 Clutch 24-Hour Food Spots in Hoboken

Written by:

In a town as busy {and fun} as our beloved Hoboken, hunger knows no timeframe. Whether you’re working super late, have to head out the door before sunrise, or have had a fun night out on the town and need a snack or a full blown meal, you’re in luck. There are a bunch of yummy 24-hour food options within the mile square. Here are five of our favorites, including their perks.

Malibu Diner

Malibu Diner 5

New Jersey is known as the diner capital of the world, and for good reason. The perfect diner has a cozy atmosphere as well as pages and pages of menu and friendly waitresses {no matter the hour} — and that’s exactly what the {huge} Malibu Diner has to offer. Smoothies and milkshakes, salads and burgers, even steaks and kebabs are only a fraction of Malibu’s extensive menu. {AND they have a full-service bar + take out, too!}




Spa Diner

Another diner conveniently located right next to the PATH {perfect for your friends who have come to visit Hoboken and want a snack before they head back across the Hudson} is the Spa Diner. Though their signage outside might boast that they have the “worst breakfast 1 guy on Yelp! ever had,” we seriously beg to differ. Whether you want breakfast staples, veal parm, meatloaf, a gyro, or sardines {yes, you read that correctly — sardines} the Spa Diner has something for everyone, at any hour of the day.


Papaya Dog {*Closed due to fire}

Perfect for those late-night PATH homecomings, Papaya Dog is a go-to for satisfying the “I’m-so-hungry-and-need-greasy-food-now” cravings. Hot dogs and “all the fixings,” fries, sandwiches from the grill, and mozzarellas sticks are all ready for quick-service from their grills and fryers to your mouths in minutes flat.


Bagels on the Hudson

Want a bagel [or need some tailgating supplies] super early in the AM? A hot and cheesy sandwich while burning the midnight oil? Either way, Bagels on the Hudson has you covered {and they take debit/credit cards now, too. Yaaas!} Some of our personal favorites include The Joey G {Taylor ham, eggs, cheese and potatoes on a roll}, Philly-Style Cheesesteak, the Hoboken Reuben Sandwich, and chocolate chip pancakes {yes, really!} just to name a few. They also have a selection of snacks and kitchen essentials too, for convenient and yummy 24-hour convenience. {PS – for healthier round-the-clock options, they also have salads.}


I mean, you’re not technically shopping locally, but when the late night {or drunken} hunger hits, there’s nothing like an order of nuggets, fries, and a McFlurry. With their new all-day breakfast menu you can indulge in McMuffins, pancakes, and biscuits, too Whatever your pleasure, McDonald’s is available for 24 hour grub — especially for your drunken escapades.
