Kale and quinoa at a McDonald’s franchise? McDonald’s Canada is opening a new cafe that focuses on healthy alternatives to its traditional burger and fries menu.
The concept restaurant, called McCafé, was named after McDonald’s coffee line. It will also serve coffee, danishes, breakfast sandwiches, croissants, and fancy desserts.
“We’re putting the café in McCafé and making the brand a destination in its own right,” John Betts, president and CEO of McDonald’s Canada, said in a statement.
“The new standalone McCafé locations allow us to build on our strong coffee credentials and create even stronger connections with our brand by offering our guests the more complete cafe menu they’ve been asking us for.”
Customers at this concept restaurant can ditch a Big Mac for a quinoa edamame mandarin salad, a kale and Brussels sprouts salad with mixed veggies, classic grilled cheese on stoneground multi-grain bread, and an apple & brie croissant with honey.
The first location is opening at Union Station in Toronto.
Here’s the main menu:
