No matter where you go, it always seems like a Subway isn’t far away, beckoning you with its unique and semi-bizarre smell, its seasonal offerings, and its guarantee that whatever you order will taste exactly the same as it did the last time you ordered it, whether it was in Mexico City; Braga, Portugal; or Peoria, Illinois. But there’s one question we’re wondering: What time does Subway start serving lunch?
The good news is that Subway serves everything on its menu, all the time, even breakfast. Because the bulk of the menu consists of cold items, they’re always on hand and ready to be used; hot sandwiches are just heated up in a toaster, as opposed to, say, McDonald’s deep-fried hash browns. Even Subway’s omelette patties are pre-made and kept cold, heated up on demand, so if you want egg on your sandwich, even at night, you can have it.
The exact hours that each Subway is open varies greatly, because most of them are franchise-owned. Some locations are open 24 hours, some close at 2 a.m., some close at 8 p.m. But every Subway serves breakfast, so while some may open earlier than others, you can bank on each location being open by 8 a.m. — and if you want to buy your lunch then, too, you can.
