Ten Best Late-Night Eats in Palm Beach County

West Palm Beach's late-night scene includes Havana, the Cuban-style restaurant where the walk-up counter is open until the early-morning hours. There's no need to schlep all the way down to Miami to get authentic Cuban sandwiches -- ham, marinated pork, Swiss cheese, and pickles between two slabs of fresh-baked Cuban bread. Pair with one of the natural fruit milk shakes or juices made from papaya or mango, then end your pig-out session with steaming cups of café cubano, cortaditas -- or café con leches and a jiggly serving of caramel or coconut flan. Havana's main, two-story dining room isn't open after hours, but the 24-hour walk-up window is open all day, every day, for those of you who get the craving after midnight. We know there's nothing like feeding that 3 a.m. Cuban craving with a steaming box of smoky croquetas, vaca frita, and sweet plantains.
5. Pizza Rustica

There are tons of late-night pizza spots from Boca Raton to West Palm Beach, but with numerous locations across the U.S. -- even Europe -- Palm Beach County is lucky to count the Delray Beach's Pizza Rustica as one of its late-night pizza establishments for good food at a good price almost any time of day. Here, you can nab a slice after the bars and clubs have shut down, and it's been that way since founder and owner Pino Piroso opened his first shop in 1996. One of 17 Pizza Rustica locations throughout the world, this Delray location mirrors the same qualities of the flagship Pizza Rustica of Miami Beach that got the whole ball of dough rolling in the first place. Serving classic square, Roman-style pizza at decent prices, Pizza Rustica has the late-night pub-crawl crowd cornered. Slices run under $5, and the joint stays open until 2 a.m. Generous toppings include traditional chicken Parmesan, mini meatballs, smoked ham and bacon, and nontraditional items like sweet corn and goat cheese. Pizza Rustica serves food until 3 a.m. Monday through Sunday.
