Miami 24-hour food!

Does anyone have suggestions for the best 24-hour food in Miami? This could be diners, bakeries, street food, even sno-cones -- as long as they're serving til the break of dawn, I'm interested. The wackier, the better. Thoughts?

  1. Here's a good starting point for a list of restaurants open 24hrs ->

    Of these, places where I think you're likely to find edible food (though your ability to distinguish at certain hours may be impaired) would be ->
    David's Cafe (off Lincoln Road) - decent Cuban
    Sergio's (Coral Way and 32nd) - also decent Cuban, 24 hrs weekends only, I believe.

    Not listed at that website ->
    News Cafe (SoBe) is predictable if not exceptional.
    Lester's Diner in FTL (on State Road 84 way east toward the port) is a classic old-school diner.

    Can anyone vouch for the food at Yambo? I've heard of this 24-hr Nicaraguan place around Flagler and 17th but never been. Supposed to be completely wacky decorations to boot.

        Yes, I am doing some research, but it's not for an article. Don't worry, no plagiarizing shall ensue.

        Yambo is great! I've had many a late night there. Get the platter with steak, and it comes with delicious fried cheese too (which tastes even better at 4:00 am).

      3. Big Pink on Collins ave is one of the best 24 hour places. THey have a full serive bar and a fun atmosphere.

          I am sorry ebennett, but I have to disagree. IMHO, the quality of the food there is just not good. It is just as bad as Jerry's Deli although less stinky.
