You might think that Astoria is one of the quieter parts of the city that never sleeps, but there’s a suprising number of open all night, 24 hour businesses right here in our neighborhood. Wether you just need to cap off a night out or are tending to some unfortunate late-night sickness, Astoria’s got you covered.
5 Great Places in Astoria that are open 24 hours a day:
Monika’s Cafe Bar
I don’t know about you, but there’s something about being able to get a healthy salad and kombucha at any hour of the day (or night!) that makes my heart happy. In case you haven’t heard- Monika’s Cafe Bar is the latest cafe to go 24 hour (there’s also rumors that Omonia on Broadway is open day and night, but check first before you head out). Don’t want to head out at 2am? Don’t worry, they deliver their Mediterranean inspired cafe classics at any hour as well.
Rite Aid & CVS
We’ve all been there- a sick child, a sudden nighttime fever or other ailment and you’re scrambling to find a much needed 24 pharmacy in the middle of the night. Fear not- Rite Aid on 30th Ave. (store #1805) and CVS on Ditmars are both open 24 hours a day.

Looking for some classic diner fare mixed with Greek staples? Tastee’s got you covered. This 24 hour restaurant near the heart of Astoria has a little something for everyone. Looks like they deliver around the clock, too.
United Brothers Fruit Market
The granddaddy of all Astoria fruit & veggie stands, United Brothers is a massive, magical wonderland of produce that also happens to be open around the clock. Those with alternative or over night work schedules can rejoice at having a healthy shopping option waiting for them anytime of day.

It wouldn’t be right to do an all-nite round up of Astoria without including this classic diner. While the food isn’t gourmet by any means, you will find solid diner classics being served night and day here. Head over late enough and you’ll find they have bouncers who work the door and keep the masses in line. A sight to behold, indeed.
