There are not a ton of vegan options at Busch Stadium, but there are enough to not go hungry during a Cardinals game!
We put together a list of all the vegan options we’re aware of in the stadium and what section you can find each one. Also in this guide, we also included Busch Stadium’s policies on bringing food into the stadium in case you’re thinking about going that route.
Finally, we did a bit of research looking around the stadium to find a few good vegan spots you can check out if you want to grab a bite to eat before or after the game.

Can I Bring Food Into Busch Stadium?
Here are a few of the policies you need to know if you want to bring your own food into the stadium.
Here is the Cardinals’ official Food policy (as of 3/21/22)
Guests may bring their own food & drinks into Busch Stadium for all games.
Most food items are permitted, but guests should consider our bag policy when deciding what food to bring. Non-alcoholic beverages including water and soda in factory sealed clear plastic containers no larger than 2 liters are allowed.
Food & beverages from the outside will not be permitted in the Cardinals Club, Luxury Suites, Party Suites or any of our other All Inclusive Areas. Please visit cardinals.com/security for more information.
In regards to the bag policy mentioned above, here is what we found about Busch Stadium’s bag policy within their ‘prohibited items’ (as of 3/21/22):
Guests are encouraged to limit bags for stadium entry. ONLY the following bags will be permitted: small purses, clutch/wristlet, fanny packs or other single pouch bags not exceeding 8″ x 10″.
Exceptions will be made for medical bags and diaper bags with a child. All bags must enter via the designated Inspection Lanes at each gate.
Vegan Options Near Busch Stadium
This is by no means all the vegan friendly restaurants located around Busch Stadium or in St Louis in general. Just a couple spots that stood out to us as we looked for places we personally would want to check out if we were in town for a game.
Lona’s Lil Eats
Located about 2 1/2 miles southwest of Busch Stadium in Fox Park is Lona’s Lil Eats. It’s self-described as a ‘Cozy, vegan-friendly eatery serving Asian-fusion fare, including make-your-own rice-paper wraps.’
Here’s what we know.
They have a 4.8 review rating on Google with over a 1000 reviews. We’ve been looking at a lot of places around quite a few stadiums and to have that kind of rating with that many reviews isn’t easy to do. People especially rave about the dumplings.
Definitely on the top of the list of places we want to check out next time we’re in St Louis!
Tree House Restaurant
Tree House Restaurant is another highly rated spot just a few miles further southwest than Lona’s. Inspired by world cuisines, Tree House puts out some amazing looking food!
They are vegetarian (not 100% vegan) so keep that in mind when ordering, but they seem to do a good job of clearly marking their menu so it shouldn’t really be an issue.
The ravioli seems to be a favorite if you get a chance to stop by this spot close to the stadium.
