How to feed your need for grease afterhours

Hungry after 3 a.m.? Here are four restaurants that deliver.

Chez la Mère

Whether you’ve stumbled home drunk and forgot to pick up fast food on the way or your sleep schedule makes you crave lumberjack breakfasts before dawn, there are late-night restaurants ready to serve you. These four restaurants collectively cover most of the island, and we can vouch for them, too:


George's combos
George’s combos

Souvlaki George

Phone: 514-482-0040

Hours: 11–4 a.m.

Range: Montreal West to Atwater, Ville Emard to Hampstead

George has been serving up quality Greek eats in NDG since 1977. Chicken, lamb and pork souvlaki pitas and gyros, calamari, spanakopita, Greek salad and casse-croûte staples, offered à la carte or in dozens of potential combos, are just a phone call away.


Angela's pizzas

Pizzeria Angela

Phone: 514-933-2000

Hours: 10:30–6 am

Range: Cavendish to Papineau, Côte Ste-Catherine to Pointe St-Charles

Angela is a rare find for Montreal: a late-night pizzeria run by actual Italians. In a city known for its mediocre slices, Angela deserves props for getting the pizza sauce so right. Also on the menu: Greek stuff, grilled brochettes, 10 kinds of poutines, omelettes and the usual casse-croûte heart-stoppers. Speaking of which, they also deliver cigarettes.


Alma's Greek fare
Alma’s Greek fare

Restaurant d’Alma

Phone: 514-728-0666

Hours: 11–11 Sun-Thu, 11–4 a.m. Fri–Sat

Range: See the postal codes on Just Eat’s Alma page (note: they also serve H3N)

This Greek place on Jean-Talon E. is the kind that’s so stacked with greasy choice, they even have a Chinese section. You should probably stick to the five-pound Greek salad, the poutines and the seafood plates, if you’re feeling fancy.


Chez la Mère international

Chez la Mère

Phone: 514-725-9391

Hours: 11–5 Sun-Wed, 11–6 p.m. Thu–Sat

Range: Notre-Dame to Galerie d’Anjou, Papineau to Langelier

This 24-hour Rosemont spot has a sprawling menu, too, with all the artery-clogging goup you can imagine, including whatever “Chinoiseries” are. We’d rather steer you to one of their dozen varieties of  poutine or half a dozen takes on the club sandwich — this is pretty stellar stuff, even if you’re sober.

Bon appetit!
