Open since 1947, Western Bagel is an LA classic that serves quality bagels and sandwiches at locations throughout Southern California. But at their long-standing location in Van Nuys, they’re slinging those babies out 24 hours a day. Given its location, it’s not the best spot to hit after a long night of bar-hopping, but if you’re up early in the Valley or have to catch a 6am flight out of LAX, their cheese bagel sandwiches are exactly what your body needs. Cash only.

The food at Forage is fresh. The recipes are amazing. And they will plate you a nasty-good plate of baked mac n’ cheese that is definitely not Whole30 Diet approved. Damn you, farm-to-table morons. You got this one right.

Canter's is a Los Angeles classic. Come late night for a pastrami reuben and some very entertaining people watching.
Greenblatt’s is good. You can still walk in, get a hot pastrami sandwich, and walk out happy. It’s the ordeal along the way we aren’t so keen on.
Fred 62 in Los Feliz might be a drunk diner favorite, but it's pretty great any time of the day.
