Vegan Options at Charlotte Airport


Atrium

Auntie Anne’s

Auntie Anne’s pretzels are vegan as long as you ask for no butter on them! There are a couple options you can choose from including a couple different dipping sauces.

Burger King

Impossible Whopper at Burger King
Currently the “Number 3 Combo” at Burger King. Impossible Whopper (make sure to order with no mayo!), fries and a drink.

Burger King offers the Impossible Whopper (order with no mayo) and the fries are vegan too.

Starbucks

Tons of vegan drink varieties along with bagels, oatmeal and a variety of snacks. As of the Spring of 2021, Starbucks has a ‘vegan protein box’ that features Chickpea bites and reminds us of a Lunchable for grown-ups.

Baggage

Starbucks

New Starbucks Spring Items
The new Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso, Ice Chocolate Almondmilk Shaken Espresso, Chickpea Box and a cameo from our Miss Mia.

There are a crazy amount of Starbucks inside the Charlotte Airport. Like, a double digit amount a lot. We’re not going to re-list the menu suggestions for each location, because that just seems obnoxious. Check the Starbucks entry just above for suggestions.

The Plaza

Auntie Anne’s

Auntie Anne’s pretzels are vegan as long as you ask for no butter on them! There are a couple options you can choose from including a couple different dipping sauces.

Shake Shack

If you get really lucky, this Shake Shack location will have one of the new vegan burgers that came from the partnership with Slutty Vegan. If it does, this is probably the best vegan option in the entire airport.

Concourse A

Jamba

Tons of great vegan juice options. The Protein Berry Workout “Power Smoothie” and the Amazing Greens Smoothie are our favorites. They also recently released the Impossible Handwich, an Impossible Sausage on Sprouted Buns. (order with no cheese)

Panera Bread

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.

Starbucks

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

A Connector / Concourse B & C & D

Starbucks

This isn’t exactly the kind of news that we like to give, but Starbucks is the only thing we can find for sure in the A Connector as well as Concourses B, C and D. However, there is a Starbucks in every one of those areas.

If you know of something we’re missing, we’d love to hear from you.

D/E Connector

Jamba

Tons of great vegan juice options. The Protein Berry Workout “Power Smoothie” and the Amazing Greens Smoothie are our favorites. They also recently released the Impossible Handwich, an Impossible Sausage on Sprouted Buns. (order with no cheese)

Concourse E

Burger King

Burger King offers the Impossible Whopper (order with no mayo) and the fries are vegan too.

Einstein Bros. Bagels

Lots of vegan bagels to choose from (click the link to see the full list on the Einstein Bros guide). Also, some very underrated coffee in our opinion.

Panda Express

Panda Express Chow Mein and Spring Rolls
Chow Mein, Rice and Spring Rolls from Panda Express (and don’t forget the fortune cookie!)
