The Continental - which has locations in both Old City and Center City - is basically an upscale diner that serves alcohol. You can come here for any meal of the day, and, while they’re not open 24/7 like a normal diner, they do serve dinner until 1am, which is about the latest you can get food anywhere in the city. They also have a great brunch that includes a pretty perfect huevos rancheros, and a Bloody Mary topped with beer that will make you forsake all other Bloody Marys
