Best Late-Night Eats in Honolulu

Honolulu might not be the city that never sleeps, but for diners looking for a bite to eat well into the evening can still find delicious options to satisfy late-night cravings. Whether you’ve got a late flight, jet lagged or simply looking for sustenance, these Honolulu kitchens are our picks for finding quality food late into the night. 

Liliha Bakery

This neighborhood 24-hour bakery and diner is a beacon for night owls or the early morning business man. The legendary Coco Puffs are undefeated in the “what to bring to the potluck” category and sell out quickly.

Sushi King

The sushi, sashimi, and hand rolls are reliably good here, but cooked food also abounds: vegetable tempura, butterfish, fried oysters and calamari.

JJ Dolan's

Their slogan says, “An Irish pub with New York pizza from two guys in Chinatown” and they live up to it in every way. With a wine list compiled by sommelier Heath Porter and pizza pies rumored to be the best in town, this unique, ever-crowded bar is proof that this is a place you don’t want to miss.

Wailana Coffee House

A down-to-earth diner and a Waikiki institution, Wailana Coffee House is always busy, with both visitors and locals lining up for hearty breakfasts and well-priced dinners. It’s also one of the last places in town where one can get a good meal 24/7.

Downbeat Diner & Lounge

Located in Honolulu's Chinatown, this retro diner serves up American fare like burgers, sandwiches, salads, a variety of loco mocos as well as breakfast, served all day long. For those that don't eat meat, nearly all menu items can be transformed into vegan- and vegetarian-friendly meals.

Yanagi Sushi

A longtime Honolulu favorite across from the historic (and now shuttered) News Building, Yanagi’s serve excellent sushi, sashimi and traditional Japanese entrees and nabe dishes. George Clooney was spotted there while he was in town filming “The Descendants,” and the servers are still verklempt.

Million Pocha

Sister restaurant to Million Restaurant, this lounge and tapas bar is where you can fill up on Korean street food like fried dumplings, chicken feet, Korean spicy chicken wings or kim chee cheese fried rice along with alcoholic beverages like watermelon shochu.

Mac 24/7

Known for its sleek white decor and “Modern American Cooking” served in generous portions, MAC 24-7 offers comfort food all day and night (and the bar serves cocktails until 4 am). Dishes include meat loaf, “mac daddy” pancakes and spicy tuna sandwiches, as well as appetizers, small plates and salads.

Uncle Bo's Pupu Bar & Grill

Mingle in the lounge with your martini in hand or head straight to the back dining room for dinner. Plates are colorfully presented and filled with Pacific Rim delights.
