Vegan at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

vegan at los angeles airport

The Los Angeles International Airport is one of, if not the most vegan friendly airport in the US. Whereas in most airports just finding the good vegan options is our goal. At LAX, we want to make sure you don’t miss out on some of the AWESOME vegan options that the Los Angeles Airport has to offer. Like for instance if you find yourself in Terminal 4, you’ll have a chance to check out Real Food Daily – one of the only FULLY VEGAN restaurants that can be found in an airport (trust us, we’ve looked).

We have separated the airport by concourse. Then, we place each restaurant into one of three categories. First, locations that we know the options for. We also list these in order from what we feel has the best options to the ‘not-so-best’. You can click on the names of the majority of these places and it will take you to a dedicated cheat sheet for that restaurant.

Next, we have a section for restaurants that we are still researching. If you know information that can help make this page better, then by all means let us know! Finally there is a section for restaurants that we have confirmed do not offer vegan options.

We hope this list of vegan options at the Los Angeles Airport helps you the next time you’re in LA (or perhaps more likely, right this second). The idea for these airport lists started by me wondering around the Atlanta Airport trying to figure out if the place I was at was the best spot to get a bite or if there was something better down the way.
