Cleveland Browns Stadium Vegan Guide 2023 (Cleveland Browns)

Cleveland Browns Vegan

Multiple attempts to contact Cleveland Browns Stadium (formerly known as First Energy Stadium), to find out what vegan options are available have not produced any results thus far… we’re talking not only for the 2023 season but for the last few seasons. 

Unfortunately, as of late August 2023, they have shared zero information on what concessions they are offering on the website.

We will continue to contact them, but in the meantime, we do have information that may make your gameday experience better. Below, you will find the policies you need to know if you’re thinking about just bringing your own food to the stadium.

We also have two suggestions for vegan-friendly locations where you can stop and grab a bite to eat before or after the game.

Vegan Options at Cleveland Browns Stadium

We are not aware of any vegan options at First Energy Stadium at this time. It doesn’t mean they may not exist, we just haven’t been able to confirm with anyone at the stadium what (and where) they are for the 2023 season. 

We’ll keep trying to reach out to get this info and will update here as soon as it is available to us. 

If you happen to go to a game and learn more,  please reach out and let us know! As a Brownie since birth, I would love to be able to share vegan options at the stadium this year -Jen

Fans with medically necessary items should enter through the South 7UP City Club entrances

All guests will be subject to a search of their person and possessions prior to entering the stadium. Visit for more information on the NFL Bag Policy.

  • Guests are permitted to bring small food items into Cleveland Browns Stadium for personal consumption.
  • Food items should be brought in a gallon-sized clear plastic bag or factory sealed.

Vegan Options Near First Energy Stadium

We looked around the area close to the stadium to find a few vegan spots that would be good places to get a bite to eat before or after the game. This isn’t a fully comprehensive list, just a few places that caught our attention.

Check days & hours of operation when making your plans. 

Anna in the Raw

Lobby of IMG Building, 1360 E 9th St, Cleveland, OH 44114

Located only a few blocks from the stadium, Anna in the Raw serves up (you guessed it!) raw vegan eats and fresh juice blends. So if feel like you need something fresh and healthy before an evening of tailgating and football, give this place a shot!

Citizen Pie Roman Cafe

2057 E 4th St, Cleveland, OH 44115Opens in a new tab.

Omni Pizza joint “for the people” that offers a special vegan pizza. The reviews mention how unique the flavors are here. We suggest picking up a pie on your way to the game to tailgate or on your way home. Maybe pack a couple of slices in an approved NFL bag to take into the game.
