I didn't know McDonalds has an "elderly discount."

Call it what you will, I think most McDonalds offer at least a senior coffee discount. Small coffee but mine offers free refills. At one time they offered 15% off everything for anyone 55 or over. That didn't last too long.

I retired at 55 and lots of places offered me senior discounts. As more people turned 55 the age started rising --- first to 60, then to 62, then to 65 at many places. I'll be 65 next summer. If they raise the age to 70 I'm going to give up on senior discounts because I refuse to get any older.

Dunkin' Donuts has a discount over 55 but not all stores give it -- ask first. Here it's almost $2 for medium. The discount is 10% off on everything. But I don't like their coffee anymore. (An aside: It appears that DD opened a store within one block of almost every single Starbucks in NYC.)

In most of Manhattan there are coffee wagons which sell bagels, donuts, coffee, orange juice, egg sandwiches. Coffee is $1 (for medium) and it's not bitter. They're operational only until sold out which is about 11am.
