In Austin, around-the-clock eats and drinks are the best way to fuel those sleepless nights. From 3 a.m. caffeine for studying fuel to baked good cravings to solid diner fare, there is a 24-hour option for every need.

The city offers all-hour coffee shops Bennu, very 24-hour diner Stars Cafe, and, yes, Texas’s favorite burger chain Whataburger. Many restaurants that were famously 24/7 such as Magnolia Cafe and 24 Diner are no longer all-hours because of the pandemic.

For more after-hour eats, there’s Eater’s guide to late-night restaurants and food trucks, and bars with great food options. And for those early birds, there are coffee, breakfast, and cafes with Wi-Fi.
