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

If it's not a Sunday where you are 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. Then why do they not serve it all day? Read on to see why and what time Chick-Fil-A stops serving breakfast.

Chick-Fil-A's Breakfast Menu And Serving Hours

There's nothing like an order of chick-n-minis, side of hash browns, and some coffee. Literally, there's nothing like the chick-n-minis. Other fast food restaurants serve some form of a fried chicken breakfast sandwich, but Chick-Fil-A's chick-n-minis (essentially chicken nuggets sandwiches) are so easy to eat. Not to mention, the yeast rolls have just the right amount of butter on them.

If you want to take it up a notch, you can just order a full chicken biscuit, also available with their spicy chicken. 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.

So 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 nothing left," CFA worker Madison Gann shared.

Former cashier and kitchen worker, Mikayla Eckel Cifrese also added that the kitchen is just too small to be able to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner all day. "The breakfast items are cooked in different types of trays and pans and there isn't enough room to have the breakfast trays and pans out as well as the lunch/dinner ones. We would struggle to keep up with the rush without losing space in the fryers and heaters for breakfast stuff."

There you have it. You most likely won't get all day breakfast at CFA and for now, you'll just have to get up early with the rest of 'em. What time does Chick-Fil-A stop serving breakfast? They run from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m, and are closed on Sundays. 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.

Chick Fil A Breakfast Menu Items:

Chick Fil A Chicken Biscuit

This is a breakfast sized version of their chicken, served on a warm biscuit.

Egg White Grill

Instead of fried chicken, this sandwich uses grilled chicken with an egg white and American cheese. It's served on a multigrain English muffin.

Hash Brown Scramble Burrito

What makes this breakfast burrito great is the option to customize. You can choose filet, or nuggets and the type of cheese. It is served in a warm flour tortilla.

Hash Brown Scramble Bowl

The same thing as the burrito, minus the tortilla.

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit

This biscuit has an egg, cheese and Applewood bacon.

Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit

Similar to the bacon biscuit, except this one has pork sausage in between buttermilk biscuits.

Bacon(or sausage) Egg & Cheese Muffin

chick fil a muffin

This biscuit sandwich is very similar to the Mcdonald's Egg McMuffin. The main difference is the multigrain English muffin Chick Fil A that uses.

Buttered Biscuit

?This biscuit is baked fresh at every restaurant. Served hot and delicious!

Greek Yogurt Parfait

If you're looking for a healthier option, try the yogurt parfait with fresh berries and granola.

You can enjoy this fruit cup for any meal, though it makes a nice breakfast. It's also an option for the kid's meal if you'd like something healthier.

?Chick-Fil-A Breakfast Menu Hack

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, but CFA doesn't mind.

In fact, it takes them an extra 15 minutes to prepare those items for you (they'll share in person). So if you want to go ahead and grab a chicken sandwich, deluxe sandwich or waffle potato fries to enjoy at a later time in the day, go ahead!

You might as well throw in a milkshake into your order. Maybe balance it out with a fruit cup. And don't forget your dipping sauce! There's no restaurant chain like CFA.
