Aren't we the city that never sleeps? You bet we are – and you can also bet that this waken state is because we're always fuelled by caffeine. So obviously, there's gotta be places that are happy to serve you great coffee at all times, no? Here's where to head for great coffee in the middle of the night, the wee hours of the morning, and beyond.

The Square, Juhu
We can't help that Juhu is lit. The Square actually has a midnight food menu, too! If you're not done drinking for the night (or if you wanna start...), they've got booze, too. Couple this with a view of the sea, and this is a great, romantic option.
