WHO doesn’t love a McDonald’s breakfast to get them going for the day?
Whether your menu choice is a classic sausage and egg McMuffin or the new muffin with jam, we explain what time breakfast is served until.
For the first time in months, you’ll be able to eat your meal inside a McDonald’s restaurant from today.
Brits move even closer to normality as the nation enters into the third step of Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of lockdown, meaning restaurants and boozers can reopen for indoor dining.
Cinemas, sports stadiums and bingo halls can also welcome customers back.
But you can still order your Maccies meal and get it delivered to your home.
You can also still use drive-thru lanes and home delivery services through Just Eat and Uber Eats.
Keep in mind you’ll pay extra if you’re ordering McDonald’s to your home through these apps.
What time does McDonald’s stop serving breakfast?
McDonald’s serves breakfast every day until 11am.
It used to switch to the lunchtime menu at 10:30am, but bosses added an extra 30 minutes to the breakfast offering in 2019.
Restaurants that are normally open 24 hours a day start serving breakfast from 6am.
Every other restaurant kicks off the day with the breakfast menu at their normal opening times.

What’s on the McDonald’s breakfast menu?
McDonald’s continues to offer a reduced menu since its reopening following the first lockdown back in March 2020.
At the time, it shut all 1,350 of its restaurants temporarily and when they reopened, they did not offer breakfast at first – but don’t worry, they do now.
The popular breakfast bagels are still not back and some of the wraps Maccies previously offered are still missing from the menu.
You can check out the full breakfast menu on the McDonald’s website, or in the box below.

How do I get McDonald’s breakfast?
All of McDonald’s branches in England and Wales are now open for dine-in, as Covid restrictions ease further today.
However, it’s table service only – so customers are being encouraged to order their meal via the McDonald’s app.
McDonald’s has added numbers to all of its tables, which you’ll then need to add after you select the “eat in” option on the app.
Staff will then bring your food to the table.
You’ll also have to wear a face mask when you’re not sat at your table, and there will be limited seating in some cases to keep social distancing in place.
But you can still take your food away, use a drive-thru or opt for delivery.
At the start of the pandemic, McDonald’s introduced home delivery at hundreds more of its restaurants so you can get brekkie delivered directly to your door.
Orders can be made through Just Eat and Uber Eats but remember, you’ll have to pay a fee for delivery.
How much this costs depends on how far from the restaurant you live.
There is also an option to click and collect through the McDonald’s app, where you place your order and pay online and can pick it up via drive-thru.
Why doesn’t McDonald’s serve breakfast after 11am?
McDonald’s starts its normal menu from 11am each day.
They continue serving burgers, chicken nuggets and the rest of the normal menu right through until closing time, which will vary depending on your restaurant’s opening times.
Food on the normal menu and the breakfast menu can’t be cooked at the same time.
Breakfast food is cooked slightly differently and at different temperatures to burgers and fries and there’s not enough space to do both menus at once in the kitchens.
McDonald’s says on its website: “The 11am cut off enables us to accommodate our breakfast lovers, whilst allowing the customers who enjoy our main menu to get their food before 11:30am.”
