What Are Wendy’s Breakfast Hours?

Wendy’s breakfast hours vary between restaurants, which begs the question — what are those exact hours? Generally, the earliest a location will start serving breakfast is 6:30 a.m., and the latest it will serve breakfast is 10:30 a.m. You can check when your nearest Wendy’s starts and stops serving breakfast with the Wendy’s website store locator.

17 Wendy's Breakfast Foods To Try

1. Sausage, Egg and Swiss Croissant

A pastry-inspired sandwich from the Wendy’s breakfast selection, the Sausage, Egg and Swiss Croissant is a favorite. It consists of a thin square sausage patty, a layer of egg and the Wendy’s popular Swiss cheese sauce, all packed into a croissant. The cheese sauce gives this meaty sandwich a burst of tangy flavor. While the croissant may not be crispy on the outside, it still retains its delicious flavor, making this a Wendy's breakfast must-try.

2. Breakfast Burrito

In January 2024, we were gifted with a new Wendy's breakfast addition — the breakfast burrito. You can look forward to the following in each soft flour tortilla burrito: two eggs, potatoes, six slices of bacon, American cheese and the franchise's famous Swiss cheese sauce. On the side, you are given two Cholula sauce packets to put on at your own discretion. Each bite gives you a new flavor experience, highlighting the different ingredients with each taste.

3. Frosty Cream Cold Brew

The Wendy’s breakfast Frosty Cream Cold Brew is a delightful treat with three flavor variants available: chocolate, vanilla and caramel. This drink is a perfect balance between cold brew coffee and a frosty-based creamer. The flavor is not overwhelming, but rather very light for a cold brew, so much so that even those who do not enjoy regular coffee can enjoy this sweet take on the classic caffeinated beverage. It's a Wendy’s breakfast temptation you won't be able to resist.

4. Homestyle French Toast Sticks

The Homestyle French Toast Sticks from the Wendy’s breakfast options are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. The French toast sticks are cut into thick, crunchy sticks, similar to steakhouse fries. Each bite gives you that perfect mix of crunchy on the outside, and soft and fluffy on the inside, with a faint hint of a cinnamon sugar flavor. Wendy’s breakfast Homestyle French Toast Sticks are available in a four-pack and a six-pack for that convenient, quick, on-the-go breakfast.

5. Cinnabon Pull-Apart

As of February 26th, 2024, another sweet treat was added to the Wendy's breakfast options. The Cinnabon Pull-Apart is a collaboration with the master of baked goods, Cinnabon. It's made up of cinnamon, brown sugar and soft, fluffy dough coated in a delicious cream cheese frosting. The smell of this tantalizing sweet treat is more than enough to make you cave into the temptation, and the taste is up there with Cinnabon’s own creations. The sweet, gooey goodness of this makes it a must when trying Wendy’s breakfast foods.

6. Seasoned Potatoes

Get ready for a tasty, crunchy take on the traditional breakfast potato. Instead of taking the usual route most breakfast fast food joints choose, Wendy’s decided to opt for golden brown, thick-cut, seasoned potato slices as opposed to hash browns. Each potato slice erupts with a satisfying crunch as you bite into it. Seasoned Potatoes can be added to any of the breakfast sandwich options available as a combo or bought separately, with small, medium and large sizes to choose from.

7. Sausage Gravy and Biscuit

While not a breakfast for everyone and not an optimal car meal, Wendy’s does offer a midwestern classic breakfast — the Sausage Gravy and Biscuit. It's made with two biscuit halves smothered in a grayish-white gravy with cuts of sausage, scattered across and lightly speckled with pepper. Each buttery biscuit soaks up the peppery, country creaminess of the gravy and the meaty flavor of the sausage patty pieces scattered throughout.

8. Bacon, Egg and Cheese English Muffin

This is the Wendy’s Breakfast rendition of an English muffin sandwich, made with egg, cheese and applewood-smoked bacon crammed between two halves of an English muffin. The English muffin is soft, pillowy and satisfying. The egg is mostly a filler compared to the three slices of crispy, flavorful applewood-smoked bacon. The cheese melt is almost rendered powerless to the rest of the flavors but still adds that gooey, cheesy goodness to this tasty breakfast sandwich. Though the English muffin sandwich isn't yet a long-standing Wendy’s breakfast food, it has already been dubbed one of the classics of the breakfast section.

9. Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit

The Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit is different from Wendy’s other breakfast sandwiches. It consists of a thick fried chicken breast with a honey butter spread, sandwiched between two halves of a buttermilk biscuit. The chicken breast is deliciously juicy with a slightly crispy skin that meshes perfectly with the slight crispiness of the buttermilk biscuit. The honey butter spread adds a sweetness that matches the buttery goodness of the biscuit, giving you a Wendy's breakfast with the perfect savory-sweet combination.

10. Sausage, Egg and Cheese English Muffin

This version of the Wendy’s breakfast English muffin is similar to its counterpart. The only difference? A square sausage patty. The patty, egg and slice of American cheese sit sandwiched between the two soft and fluffy English muffin halves. The English muffin is mouthwateringly buttery and airy, with a slight tang of honey.

11. Breakfast Baconator

The Wendy’s Breakfast Baconator is the franchise's spin-off of its iconic burger, the Baconator. According to Wendy’s, this addition to the breakfast menu aims to not just break your fast, but completely destroy it. The Breakfast Baconator is made with a sausage patty, applewood-smoked bacon, a fresh fried egg, a slice of traditional American cheese and Swiss cheese sauce slathered on a premium bun. The bun is light and fluffy with a slight hint of sweetness. The flavors of the egg, bacon, sausage and cheese flow and mesh seamlessly. It's no wonder this has been dubbed a "classic" of the Wendy’s breakfast menu.

12. Maple Bacon Chicken Croissant

The Maple Bacon Chicken Croissant was part of the original 2020 breakfast launch at Wendy's. This breakfast option consists of a slab of fried chicken, applewood-smoked bacon and maple butter slathered on Wendy’s version of a croissant. The piece of fried chicken is sizable, juicy and perfectly crispy. The maple butter soaks into the croissant and fried chicken, giving each bite a hint of sweetness that works perfectly with the bacon, which is slightly crispy and has a light saltiness to it.

13. Fresh Baked Oatmeal Bar

A healthy Wendy’s breakfast option is the Fresh Baked Oatmeal Bar, made with whole oats, sweet blueberries and tart cranberries. This more wholesome option from the Wendy’s breakfast menu is a delightful treat for a quick, on-the-go breakfast. It resembles a cookie, with a pinch of cinnamon giving it a light spice and sweetness to go with the flavors from the berries, honey and oats.

14. Egg and Cheese Biscuit

The Egg and Cheese Biscuit is a simple yet delicious choice. It's great if you prefer something with slightly fewer calories than most other foods on the Wendy's breakfast menu. What you can look forward to is melted American cheese placed on top of a grade-A egg, wedged between a butter-brushed buttermilk biscuit. Simple ingredients for a simple, tasty breakfast.

15. Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuit

This delicious sausage, egg and cheese biscuit combines a square sausage patty, one egg and American cheese between two buttermilk biscuit halves. The buttermilk biscuit outer layer is soft and flaky and the egg is fresh. The egg and cheese flavor helps offset the biscuit's slightly salty flavor and the sausage patty's meaty taste. All in all, it makes for a delicious Wendy’s breakfast option.

16. Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit

Much like its sausage counterpart, the bacon, egg and cheese biscuit is made with a fresh egg, a slice of American cheese and two halves of buttermilk biscuit. The difference is that this version has streaky applewood-smoked bacon instead of a sausage patty. The bacon has a slightly sweet undertone, giving this Wendy's breakfast sandwich a whole new flavor that works really well with the fresh egg and cheese.

17. Bacon, Egg and Swiss Croissant

Also similar to its counterpart, the Bacon, Egg and Swiss Croissant consists of a fresh fried egg, Swiss cheese sauce and Wendy’s delectable take on a croissant. The difference is that this variation has delicious applewood-smoked bacon. The Swiss cheese sauce perfectly matches the croissant's light butteriness and the crispy bacon's slight saltiness.
