Best places in Edmonton for a late night meal

When you’re hungry, your stomach knows no clock — it wants what it wants, when it wants it (and it usually wants it NOW). When a bag of chips from the gas station simply won’t cut it, you need to seek out spots that serve full meals long after the sun goes down. These places all keep the kitchen open late.

The Buckingham

10439 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2A1

Looking for a spot that serves food and is open till 2 a.m. on a Monday night? Look no further than The Buckingham — they’re open till 2 a.m. every night of the week. The menu is full of vegetarian and vegan options, which is rare for a pub. They do have some meaty dishes as well but their non-meat meals are where they really shine. They also serve up vegan corn dogs, courtesy of the Sailin’ On food truck.

Garden Bakery Restaurant

10019 106 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 0N8

There are eight different steak options on the menu, plus ribs, rice bowls and plenty of pasta dishes.

Cactus Club Cafe

4
11150 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB T5K 2V2

Cactus Club Café pretty much has the full package — fun atmosphere, fantastic cocktails and a diverse but never overwhelming menu. Their appetizers are as good as their main courses, and the desserts are up to par, as well. They even manage to make their salads taste spectacular and hearty, without piling on unhealthy ingredients. Their perfectly cooked steaks will always hit the spot, as will the sweet potato fries. The hardest part is usually narrowing down all your choices to just one or two items.

The Bothy Wine & Whiskey Bar

5482 Calgary Trail NW, Edmonton, AB T6H 4J8

The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is mostly traditional Scottish fare. If you’re feeling creative, make your own cheese and charcuterie platter by choosing from their extensive lists. You can sample appetizers, such as a mixed olives bowl or bruschetta. Or, you can go for the full-meal deal and try a hearty steak and mushroom pie or traditional chicken pie. They also serve up lamb shank, haggis and roasted lamb sausage pasta, among other fantastic dishes.

The Underground Tap & Grill

Other fantastic dishes include homemade pretzel bites, wild mushroom ceviche, naan duck confit, pulled pork nachos, pan-seared scallops with Asian slaw, and poutine au canard. For something really filling, try the Berlin bratwurst platter, which comes with cured bratwurst sausage bites made in-house and spicy mustard sauerkraut.
