Many late-nighters have found breakfast-for-dinner salvation at this classic diner. Conveniently located within stumbling distance of a number of local bars, it’s a friendly pit-stop when you’re starving long after dark.

Delicias Elenita Taco Truck
This Santa Rosa taco truck is a popular Friday and Saturday night hot spot. Authentic Mexican food served under the stars makes Delicias Elenita a fiesta after dark. Best bet: Their much-loved elote – corn on the cob with salty queso fresco, mayonnaise, and chili powder – and $1.50 al pastor tacos.

El Coqui Puerto Rican
A wildly popular Puerto Rican restaurant in downtown Santa Rosa, El Coqui offers down-home Caribbean flavors with plenty of Latin panache. Fill up with the Sandwich Cubano and plantain chips (a great start for Puerto Rican cuisine newbies) or the signature Pollo al Horno (tender chicken and rice). We’re also fans of the Empanadillas de Res (a beef turnover) or the Canoas con Carne Molida, a sweet plantain stuffed with slow-roasted pork and cheese.

This bustling Old Courthouse Square restaurant has an eclectic menu that ranges from Cal-Italian pasta and chicken wings to Asian salads or a deliciously decadent Croque Madame. We love the simple (yet hearty) hamburgers from their stand-alone burger menu (yes, they have an entire menu for burgers), or try the more upscale duck ravioli with gorgonzola walnut sauce. The central location and a great wine-by-the-glass menu makes it a perfect meet-up spot.

NY Pie is the go-to Sonoma County spot for desperate pizza fixes until 3AM.

Wednesday nights are a favorite for Tex Wasabis late night deals on monster-sized bowlas (cocktails to share in a “fishbowl” glass) and appetizers. Watch the sushi chefs in action at the bar, or head upstairs to catch a game on TV. After a few drinks, creative dishes like The Jackass Roll (a sushi roll made with pulled pork and sriracha aioli) or a giant Bacon Mac n’ Cheese burger actually sound sane.

This English pub is the closest you’ll get to Old London Towne in Santa Rosa. Open until 10PM daily, there’s always sports on the telly, plenty of ale, a rockin’ trivia night and Brit food we can get behind.

The clubby Campo Fina is a favorite late night spot for a glass of chianti on the outside patio, bocce ball or just cuddling up with a dish of Chef Ari Rosen’s famous Old School in a Skillet (pork and beef meatballs with tomato sauce and Parmesan). Don’t miss with a seasonal cocktail like the “Witchcraft” with lemon vodka, grapefruit, and lime juice, or a pick from the wine list. Wood-fired pizzas are a signature, but you pretty much can’t go wrong with anything on Campo Fina’s critically-acclaimed menu.

The sister restaurant to Campo Fina, Scopa is a tribute to authentic family-style Italian cuisine. Go for the house made ravioli, goat cheese-stuffed figs, or Pizza Salsiccia with roasted eggplant, buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. The tiny restaurant can be crowded, so don’t be surprised if there’s a wait.
Featuring the Sheboygan Brat, The Detroit Polish, and Southside Wurst, it’s not hard to glean that The Wurst is pretty much the best at real-deal sausages. Draft and bottled beers, hard cider, and wines are available to pair with hand-cut fries and all the usual toppings. We recommend the chicken apple sausage loaded with hot peppers and sauerkraut, with a side of at least five napkins. Burgers are available as well, along with potato salad and frozen custard doncha know.
