24-hour cafe and restaurant Vingt-Quatre (VQ for short) has been taking care of Fulhamites and drunk Imperial College students for years now. If you’re local, you can hit it up at any time of day and be assured of a serviceable plate of eggs benedict or a burger. It really does come into its own late at night though - where else are you going to get food on Fulham Road at four in the morning? Their booze license runs around the clock as well, so you don’t have to end up at Embargo’s again if you want to continue drinking.
