There are some good vegan options at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium. We were able to confirm some options for the 2021 season and we also have a few options that have been available in the past, but we haven’t been able to confirm if they are still available this season.
We’re still working on that and we’ll update here as soon as we get that info. We also clearly notate which is which below.
We’ve also included policies that you need to know if you’re thinking about bringing you own food into the stadium. Finally, we’ve taken the liberty of finding a couple good vegan-friendly restaurants close to the stadium worth checking out.

Vegan Options Near Empower Field
Finally, we took a look around Empower Field to find a couple options where you can grab a bite to eat before or after the game. This is by no means a complete list, just a few locations that caught our attention.
City O’ City
It’s not often that you find a local vegan-friendly restaurant with over 4,000 Google reviews (and a 4.5 rating!), but that’s exactly what we found with City O’ City. Located just a couple miles east of the stadium, this is a vegetarian restaurant with plenty of (clearly marked) vegan options on the menu.
The Chicken and Waffles is a bourbon-brined chicken-fried cauliflower and it is one of the stars of the show at City O’ City. Definitely worth checking out!
For something a little closer to the stadium, consider the Superfood Bar. It’s only a little over a mile northeast of the stadium. Superfood Bar is a raw food spots serving salads, juices and smoothies.
