While Chick-fil-A may seem like they only serve lunch and dinner, you’d be surprised to learn this fast food chain also serves a delicious breakfast. On the Chick-fil-A breakfast menu, you’ll find popular items like the Chicken Biscuit sandwich, the Egg White Grill, and the Chicken, Egg & Cheese Biscuit. However, the thing with Chick-fil-A breakfast items is that most (but not all) are NOT served all day. Unlike Whataburger, for instance, the vast majority of breakfast items are only served first thing in the morning. So, if you are interested in trying out some of these yummy breakfast items, learn more about the Chick-fil-A breakfast hours so you can start your day off right.

Does Chick-fil-A Ever Offer a Free Breakfast?


My local Chick-fil-A actually has a huge poster on the outside wall advertising a free breakfast EVERY Wednesday.

When I inquired on how it worked, I was told they hand out either a Chicken Biscuit Sandwich or a 4 count Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Minis every Wednesday between 6:30 – 10:30 am, no purchase required.

The friendly employee also said to come early if possible as the drive-thru lines gets really long by 9 am.

Check if your local Chick-fil-A offers something similar because it’s hard to beat free.

Can I Order Lunch Items During Breakfast Hours?

Unfortunately, no.

You cannot order Chick-fil-A lunch items during their breakfast hours.

You’ll have to wait until after 10:30 A.M. to order any of your favorite lunch items.

Can I Order Breakfast From Their App?


You can order Chick-fil-A breakfast items from both their app and their online menu on their website here.

On both the app and their website, you can choose to pick-up your breakfast items either via their drive-thru, carry-out, or curbside.

Can I Get Breakfast via a Food Delivery Service?


You can also order your Chick-fil-A breakfast via a food delivery service like Uber Eats, DoorDash, Postmates, or Grubhub.

Just be sure to order any breakfast items you want during the designated breakfast hours between 6 A.M. and 10:30 A.M.

Are Any Breakfast Items Available All Day?


There are some breakfast items (but not all) that you can order all day long.

In particular, you can order both the Greek Yogurt Parfait and the Fruit Cup at Chick-fil-A all day.

The rest of the breakfast items you can only order from 6 A.M. to 10:30 A.M.

Are There Any “Secret Menu” Breakfast Items?

Yes and no.

While I’ve written about the unofficial Chick-fil-A secret menu, they’ve never posted anything official.

But there are definitely some unique “menu customizations” you can create with their breakfast items.

A few clever and tasty breakfast secret menu customizations include the following:

Biscuits with Sausage Gravy: According to a commenter on my secret menu article, when dining for breakfast, be brave and ask for a “biscuit with sausage gravy”. I was told you might have to wait a few minutes for them get the gravy ready…but worth every second.

Grilled Chicken Bagel: Order an Egg White Grill, ask for a bagel with cream cheese (not an English muffin), add Colby Jack (not American cheese), and add tomato to make this yummy bagel. (Credit to the Krazy Gals from Boise).

Spicy Chicken, Egg & Cheese Biscuit: Order the Chicken, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, ask for a spicy chicken patty (not the original chicken patty), and consider adding sriracha or tomato. (Again, credit to the Krazy Gals from Boise).

Stuffed Mini Breakfast Sandwich: Order both Chick-N-Minis and hash browns from the menu. Then, take the hash browns (slather with dipping sauce if you’d like) and stuff them inside the sandwiches. (Credit to the Kelsey from the Menu Hacks Blog).

Does Chick-fil-A Serve Coffee?


Chick-fil-A serves hot, iced, and frosted coffee so you can pick the exact coffee option you want.

However, keep in mind that iced coffee (priced at $3.15) and frosted coffee (priced at $4.19) are more expensive than their regular hot coffee (priced at $2.09).

Is Coffee Only Available for Breakfast?


Chick-fil-A serves coffee and iced coffee all day long.

So, whether you need your caffeine during or after Chick-fil-A’s breakfast hours, know you can always stop to get your coffee fix.

Ask the Reader: Are you a fan of the breakfast at Chick-fil-A? If so, do you wish their breakfast hours were all day long?
