Vegan Options at Cici’s (Updated 2023)

Vegan Options at Cicis

Cici’s would have been a restaurant that I would be leary of going to as a vegan but honestly, you have options!

You can order a pizza, salad, or pasta (availability may vary). They do NOT offer a vegan cheese but that’s ok. You can make up for it with toppings. 

Because of the lack of vegan cheese, you more than likely will not find a pizza on the buffet bar that’s going to be vegan. However, Cici’s is usually good about taking any pizza requests right away.

Here is the complete list of all the vegan options at Cici’s:
