They must have changed their coffee then? I had it a few years back and it was so bad I swore it off for good, shame because their breakfast sandwiches are pretty good

March 2015 A&W announced they partnered with Van Houtte.

http://www.marketwired.com/press-releas ... 996376.htm

"The brewed coffee is exclusively blended and roasted for A&W by Montreal-based master roaster Van Houtte. The lively 100% Arabica, organic, Fair Trade blend is rich and full bodied in taste and always served fresh. Together with any of A&W's range of fresh-to-order breakfast offerings, it is the perfect start to any morning."

A&W has worked it's way back to one of my top fast food choices. Always loved the root beer and enjoyed their burgers but the breakfast and coffee is top notch.

The A & Ws in our town are absolutely packed in the mornings with seniors. A & W always has a few newspapers, as does McDs, and these people are there, reading papers, drinking coffee and having a very reasonable priced breakfast. A & W has a small gold mine with their breakfasts.
At times it's hard to find a seat.

I don't think Ikea has anything to worry about.

People line up for the $1 breakfast every single day. lol why cook when you can just eat there for cheaper most of the time.

Had my first cup of black coffee from A&W a couple days ago on St. Paddy's Day along with one of their breakfast sandwiches. I thought the coffee was just OKAY. I am not convinced it is superior to the coffee from McDonald's which is from Mother Parkers.

Just in case A&W was having an off day at that particular franchise, I will give it a few more tests at different A&W's before I reach my final verdict. To this day, I still have not found any fast food chain with better black coffee than the place with the Golden Arches. McDonald's.
