We once had a statement that said, “Oracle Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, is one of the vegan-friendliest stadiums in the US. Problem is, we cannot tell you what any of those are for the 2023 season.
Their guest services gave us very little help and the Oracle Park website/MLB app are not the friendliest when it comes to telling us what and where any are.
If you want to play it safe (which at this point we suggest you do), we shared what the stadium’s policies are for bringing your own food and drinks in.
We also found a couple of vegan restaurants close to the stadium if you want to grab a bite before or after the game.
Vegan Options at Oracle Park
- Chips – check ingredients
We had a back & forth email exchange that left us still with very little information.
This was the only option given:
- The Garden — located on the lower level behind center field. Since no specific vegan options were given, I searched the internet for any help with no avail.
I also looked thru the MLB App. We did find a Vegetarian Hot Dog at the Doggie Diner’s but have not confirmed if it is a vegan option.
If you learn additional helpful information when visiting the ballpark, please let us know. I would love to update this guide with better info.

Vegan Options Near Oracle Park
We also did a little research around the park to find some good vegan eats in case you want to grab a bite to eat before or after the game. It may not come as a surprise that there are a plethora of vegan restaurants to choose from in the area – way too many to list here.
Here are just a few:
Quick Vegan SF
475 6th St, San Francisco, CA 94103
Less than a mile from the stadium sits Quick Vegan SF, the closest of the vegan restaurants in the area to the park.
They have a wide variety of options including pizzas, burgers, bowls and even chocolate chip cookies. Definitely worth a try if you’re heading to or from a Giants game.
Shizen Vegan Sushi Bar and Izakaya
370 14th St, San Francisco, CA 94103
The highest rated of all the vegan restaurants close to the stadium is Shizen Vegan Sushi Bar (4.7 out of 5.0 with over 1800 reviews on Google). It’s a vegan sushi and ramen restaurant located about two miles west of the stadium.
If you go, make sure you try some of the vegan sushi rolls – people rave about them. I know we have it on our bucket list for sure!
