This late-night CBD diner serves up burgers, steak and sticky date pudding for a midnight 'snack'.

If you've ever fancied a freshly cut and grilled steak at 3am on a Tuesday, Butchers Diner is one to add to your late-night list. The CBD diner serves up a full menu right up until midnight five days a week.

Beginning as a storage space and deboning room for owner Con Christopoulos' nearby restaurant The European, the venue quickly realised its potential. The menu is made up of diner classics heavy on the meat, both because of the diner's initial purpose and the fact that both chefs are also butchers. Take the Coney Island chilli dog, the steak and eggs or the house-made blood sausage and devilled egg roll.

If you're walking past and can't hack a full meal, grab a duck heart skewers to take away or a see vine of poutine. It also does dessert, making it a prime spot for post-dinner pop-in, including a sticky date pudding and tiramisu. It's a simple concept, but it's been well thought out — and it fills a gap for late night dining at the top end of the CBD.
