McDonald's impending fall McCafé Bakery expansion may be precisely what you're yearning.
McDonald's will start offering the Cheese Danish on September 14. This all-day McCafé addition combines pastry, cheese, and vanilla.
Flaky pastry is filled with cream cheese and topped with streusel and vanilla. The Danish is a remixed version of a McDonald's pastry from the 1980s.
McDonald's has always been reticent to offer baked items. McDonald's hadn't added a new pastry to its menu in over a decade before unveiling the McCafé Bakery in 2020.
Recently, McDonald's has been more open to novel pastries.
McDonald's brought back the limited-time Glazed Pull Apart Donut this year after consumers adored it last year. Cheese Danish may return if customers enjoy it.
McDonald's, a fast-food giant, didn't sell breakfast for decades. In 1970, Pittsburgh franchisee Jim Delligatti started offering doughnuts and sweet buns at his McDonald's.
Local success led to a 1977 countrywide breakfast menu expansion. Ten years later, McDonald's served one in four non-homemade U.S. breakfasts.
