Can You Make It In Time? Chick-fil-A Breakfast And Hours, Explained

If it's not a Sunday when you're craving Chick-fil-A, it's always an early afternoon where you're too late to make it in time for their breakfast. Why Chick-fil-A, must you stop serving breakfast so early?

CFA's breakfast may just be better than anything else on their menu. You can definitely beg to differ, seeing as everything on their menu is great. But many will say that popping into their long drive-thru line in the morning is totally worth the longer commute to work.

What's For Breakfast at Chick-fil-A?

While many fast-food restaurants have a breakfast menu, the offerings can be monotonous: breakfast sandwiches, butter biscuits, coffee. Chick-fil-A offers all of these--with breakfast sandwiches all made with their deliciously fluffy homestyle biscuits--in addition to treats you can only find at CFA, including chick-n-minis and a hashbrown scramble.

And as if CFA breakfast items weren't already oh so delicious, clearly, a few years ago they introduced new menu items. Have you had their hash brown scramble burrito or bowl? Both are solid choices.

Does Chick-fil-A Serve Breakfast All Day?

Unfortunately, no. Don't we wish! Breakfast is served at Chick-fil-A from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. everyday, except for Sundays, of course. However, it's always best to check your local establishments because some CFA's are known to keep their crispy hash browns frying till 11 a.m.

Why choose to only do a limited time frame? When you are a CFA that's cranking out fried chicken like they do, there just isn't enough supplies and space to give the people what they want. "Stores only get limited supplies of breakfast, so by the time 10:30 comes around usually most stores are done and have barely anything left," CFA worker Madison Gann shared.

What's Best to Order on Chick-fil-A's Breakfast Menu?

Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit

A Chick-fil-A chicken biscuit is the platonic ideal of a chicken biscuit. It's deceptively simple-only a breakfast-sized portion of their chicken served on a warm buttermilk biscuit--but after one taste, you'll know you're in for something different. And, if you want to take it up a notch, you can always order it with their spicy chicken instead.

Chick-N-Minis

While their chicken biscuits are iconic, many assert that Chick-fil-A's Chick-N-Minis are the best thing on the menu, day or night. With individual chicken nuggets filling each individual yeast roll, which has been covered in a honey-butter spread, they are absolutely not to be missed.

Hash Brown Scramble Burrito

Although Chick-fil-A isn't known for their Mexican food, they've jumped on the breakfast burrito train. This breakfast treat is great for how easily customizable it is. You can choose filet, or nuggets and the type of cheese. And while it is served in a warm flour tortilla, you can also order this as a bowl rather than a burrito, if you're looking for something that's a little easier to eat on-the-go.

Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit

This biscuit sandwich is Chick-fil-A's answer to McDonald's Egg McMuffin. While it comes equipped with sausage, egg, and cheese, just as the name says (and just as a McMuffin does), the different is in the wrapping. Rather than an English muffin, Chick-fil-A's breakfast sandwich puts pork sausage between to steaming buttermilk biscuits, baked fresh in store.

Greek Yogurt Parfait

If you're looking for a healthier option, try the yogurt parfait with fresh berries and granola. Their organic vanilla bean Greek yogurt is deliciously creamy and sweet on its own, but you can always substitute the granola for cookie crumbles if you're looking to add a little oomf to your morning.

Not a Breakfast Person?

Did you know will let you order from the lunch and dinner menu during Chick-fil-A breakfast hours? Fast-food chains usually don't let you steer away from their rules like that--at many Taco Bells you can't order off the lunch menu until after 11 a.m.--but CFA doesn't mind.

Just remember, no matter what you've ordered or what time of day it is: Don't forget your dipping sauce!
