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

The city offers late night saviors Magnolia Cafe and Kerbey Lane, all-hours coffee shops Bennu and Epoch, breakfast tacos from La Mexicana Bakery, and more. This update includes 24/7 tacos from Tyson’s Tacos, Sprinkles’ all-hours cupcake vending machine, Portland’s 24-hour doughnut spot Voodoo Doughnut, and Texas’ favorite burger chain Whataburger.

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’s coffeebreakfast, and cafes with Wi-Fi.

Everything below is listed in an unranked order. If there are any other all-day dining and drinking establishments missing from the list below, let Eater know on the tipline or in the comments.
