Bananas: A Modern American Diner
924 N. Mills Ave., 407-480-2200, bananasdiner.com
Drag queens, sake shooters and fried pickles: You may regret it the next morning, but this is the spot for late-night raucous fun. Open until midnight Monday through Thursday, 24 hours Friday and Saturday.
California Burrito Express
3922 E. Colonial Drive, 407-894-8250, californiaburritoexpress.net
If you sit inside the restaurant after midnight, you can hear the drunken drive-through orders. Try the carne asada-topped “super fries.” Open 24-7.
Lazy Moon Pizza

Hours vary slightly at the four Orlando-area Pita Pits, but they’re mostly open until 3 a.m. daily. Full nutritional info for the veggie-heavy wraps is available online as well – though if you’re eating at 3 a.m., you probably don’t care.
14 W. Washington St., 407-650-8859, planet pizzaorlando.com
Right in the middle of the Orange Avenue post-bar madness and open until 3 a.m. End your downtown drunk with the best people-watching to be had at that hour and a slice of the pizza bianca.

Pom keeps her doors open until 5 a.m. Thursday and round the clock from 11 a.m. Friday through 6 p.m. Sunday. Some of the tastiest sandwiches in town (try Mama Ling-Ling’s Thanksgiving, with turkey, cranberry chutney, stuffing, mashed potato and a side of gravy), a wide selection of teas and a groovy arty vibe keep the tables crammed at all hours with fiercely devoted fans. n
