“I know it’s disappointing that these are your usual favorites, but in light of the challenges we all face, I really appreciate your understanding of the restrictions and changes we have put in place to help you and our people, to stay safe. “

Limited options always include fan favorites, such as Happy Meals, Big Macs, and McNuggets.

But there is no breakfast, which is due to the new opening hours.

Instead of opening the doors for orders early in the morning, Maccies operates between 11 am and 10 pm, hence the lack of McMuffins and bacon on the menu.

But in the good news for fans who miss their favorite Maccies items, McDonald’s has said it will start expanding its menu and hours in the coming weeks.

A McDonald’s spokesperson told The Sun, “Over the coming weeks and months, we will slowly be adding more services and menu items – including the reintroduction of our much-missed McMuffins, but only when we know we can do it while allowing our employees to work safely. “
