Vegan Options at The Cheesecake Factory (Updated 2020)

Vegan Options at The Cheesecake Factory

Unfortunately none of the cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory is a vegan option, but their are plenty of menu items to choose from. A couple options like the Vegan Cobb Salad and Avocado Toast are vegan as-is straight off the menu, along with four different dressings to go with the salad.
There is also about a dozen more choices that can be made vegan with a few slight tweaks like ordering no butter and parmesan on Evelyn’s Favorite Pasta. Here is everything vegan at The Cheesecake Factory –
