Vegan Options at Charlotte Airport


Atrium

Brookwood Farms BBQ

This is a confusing one for us. This BBQ restaurant is labeled as having vegan options on the airport’s website; however, a menu is not included so we have no idea what those options could be. If you happen to stop by and find out, please let us know

Chick-fil-A (next to security checkpoint B)

Chick-fil-A’s Cool Wrap (with modifications) is a great airport/plane meal. You could add Waffle Fries, their Kale Crunch Side or a Fruit Cup as a side. We suggest verifying you can make modifications prior to ordering.

Auntie Anne’s (next to security checkpoint C)

Auntie Anne’s offers a couple of pretzel options that can be made vegan; including a couple of different dipping sauces. Be aware ordering with no butter is a special order and will take extra time. Be prepared to wait.

Check our Auntie Anne’s vegan guide to see which options you can make vegan.

Jersey Mike’s (next to security checkpoint C)

Jersey Mike’s offers a Grilled Portabella & Swiss Sub that can be made vegan. Obviously omit the swiss cheese and make sure to get the sub on either Wheat or Seeded Italian Bread.

A pretty good upgrade from just having to order lettuce and tomatoes on bread!

Burger King

Burger King's Impossible Whopper
Burger King’s Impossible Whopper (order with NO mayo) and Fries

Temporarily Closed according to Charlotte’s airport website as of 10.10.22. Burger King offers the Impossible Whopper (order with no mayo) and fries*.

Dunkin (by C Gates)

Oat, Almond & Coconut milk are available for your coffee. Bagels (NO cream cheese), Avocado Toast and Hashbrowns can give you a decent little meal or snack. 


Concourse A

Starbucks (Connector)

One of many, many Starbucks in the Charlotte Airport. Scroll back up to the previous concourse to get our recommendations.

Panera Bread (A22)

Panera Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich
This Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich exceeded my expectations. I changed the Tomato Basil bread out for the Black Focaccia (amazing!). The drink is a Prickly Pear Hibiscus Fresca – great summer drink.

Bagels, Salads, Soups – Panera Bread has a little bit of everything when it comes to their available vegan options.

The Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich (pictured above) is a great quick lunch option. Just order with no Feta and switch out the bread to a vegan friendly bread like the Black Focaccia bread.

Jamba (A25)

Tons of great vegan juice options. The Protein Berry Workout “Power Smoothie” and the Amazing Greens Smoothie are our favorites.


Concourse B


Starbucks Coffee (B10)

Tons of vegan drink varieties along with bagels, oatmeal and snacks. Also, the Chickpea box which reminds us of an adult version of a Lunchable.


Concourse C

Oat, Almond & Coconut milk are available for your coffee. Bagels (NO cream cheese), Avocado Toast and Hashbrowns can give you a decent little meal or snack.
