How could you Macca’s, how could you? The iconic all day breakfast has surprisingly been dropped and my next Sunday hangover just won’t be the same now. 

After people started wondering where the hell the all day breakfast had disappeared, Macca’s decided to release a statement that sort of cleared things up.

“From Wednesday, 20 October, our breakfast menu will be available until midday in restaurants and 10:30am via McDelivery, to better meet the needs of customers during other peaks times,” a spokesperson for them said.

What the what? People don’t usually get up until midday when they’re hungover, how are we supposed to cure the Sunday blues by 10:30am? Do they expect me to leave my house? I’m incredulous. I’m irate.

The all day breakfast was a beacon of hope not only to the hungover masses but also to tradies, late night bartenders, long-haul truckers, even just pancake fans. We’re all hurting after this announcement. Did Macca’s really expect this to be a popular decision? The mind boggles.

“By adjusting our all-day breakfast schedule we hope to reduce the amount of time our customers may need to wait for other items during the afternoon and evening rush,” the statement continued. Well that’s fair, I guess. I guess. But it does sound like breakfast aficionados aren’t as valued as the arvo crowd.

There was a crumb of comfort though: “Fan favourites, hash browns, will still be available to order all day,” the statement added. They probably should have just led with that part. The hash brown is the king of the all day breakfast menu. Long live the king.

So farewell, all day breakfast. I’ll just have to order like 12 hash browns from now on to cope with the loss.
