24-Hour in New Haven?

I am considering moving back to my home state of CT from Austin, and New Haven is my first choice. I'd like to know if there are any 24 hour diners/restaurants in or very close to New Haven.

  1. I can think of one in Waterbury, I'd have to check on the name and if it truely is 24 hours and get back to you. If that seems Waterbury is a reasonable trip tell me and I'll check for you.

    1. The Acropolis diner on Dixwell Ave. in Hamden. Always open, pretty broad menu. But you'll miss Cisco's bakery!

        We like the Acropolis, but it's not the best diner we've ever been to. It's just fine, but not much better than that. But at 3am around here, you don't have a lot of options.

        1. Rudy's on Water St in New Haven is the real deal - lots of 3rd shifters,a cashier-owner who calls you sweetie, and they are now smoke free. The food is's a diner, not a cafe.

          1. We had lunch at Parthenon (off of I95 exit 55) this weekend, and it was great diner food. It's open 24 hours and wins "Best Diner" in the Advocate's Reader's Poll year after year. After finally trying them out, I have to agree, the food was great. We had a Pesto Burger (big, juicy, delicious) and a bowl of soup. Nothing fancy, just good quality and good prices. And it's only about 10 minutes from downtown. Here's the website:
