Up All Night

A real 24/7 diner, where you least expect it

t’s 2 a.m. and you’re hungry. In Boston that can be a real problem. Unless you know about the 24/7 diner hidden under the spaghetti bowl of highway ramps just a couple of blocks from South Station. The South Street Diner (formerly the Blue Diner) has been serving the city since 1947, with traditional comfort-food diner fare such as malted shakes and apple pie, along with homestyle steak and eggs or Belgium waffles—just what you want (and will probably regret in the morning) when you’ve got the munchies. About 10 bucks can get you a beer, a burger, and fries. Feeling nostalgic for the good o’l days? You will. Take pictures in the photo booth or ride the 25-cent pony out front. Minton

The South Street Diner has been a backdrop for the films Hiding Out, Second Sight, and House Guest.
