Open since 1947, Western Bagel is an LA classic that serves quality bagels and sandwiches at locations throughout Southern California. But at their long-standing location in Van Nuys, they’re slinging those babies out 24 hours a day. Given its location, it’s not the best spot to hit after a long night of bar-hopping, but if you’re up early in the Valley or have to catch a 6am flight out of LAX, their cheese bagel sandwiches are exactly what your body needs. Cash only.

Canter's is a Los Angeles classic. Come late night for a pastrami reuben and some very entertaining people watching.
Greenblatt’s is good. You can still walk in, get a hot pastrami sandwich, and walk out happy. It’s the ordeal along the way we aren’t so keen on.
Fred 62 in Los Feliz might be a drunk diner favorite, but it's pretty great any time of the day.
