Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky Airport Vegan Guide (2022)

Cincinnati Northern Kentucky Airport Vegan

If you’re walking through the Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport in Covington, Kentucky and you’re trying to figure out what is available vegan (and where you can find it) then you are in the right place! And if you’re not even at the airport yet and you’re here planning ahead then bonus points for you.

We’ve taken the time to scour through the Cincinnati (CVG) Airport’s Dining Guide to find everything vegan-friendly in the airport and where everything is located.

We are also very fortunate that we have our VeggL community that often reaches out to us to let us know about vegan options that they find in airports as well.

So, let’s get right to it – here is your Vegan Guide to the Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Vegan Options at the Cincinnati Airport


Ticketing / Check – In


Farmer’s Fridge (next to Elevator)

Vegan Options in a fridge (aka a vending machine), touchless ordering and offers a reward program with the Farmer’s Fridge app. You can find a variety of options ranging from oats, a burrito bowl, chips & guac and even vegan cookie dough bites. These options will always vary.

FYI: There are two other Farmer’s Fridges in the airport. One in Concourse A and another in Concourse B.


Concourse A


Starbucks (Gate 4)

Starbucks Vegan Shaken Espresso
Starbucks Toasted Vanilla Shaken Espresso

If all else fails you can almost always count on finding a Starbucks inside an airport. They have way too many vegan-friendly drinks to list here, most with either no or only slight modifications needed to order them vegan. I suggest the Toasted Vanilla Shaken Espresso or click on Starbucks above to see our full guide.

If you’re also getting food, I would suggest going with a bagel. Starbucks has multiple varieties of bagels that are vegan including the Plain, Cinnamon Raisin and Everything. Look for Justin’s Hazelnut or Classic Almond Butter as a spread.

FYI: There is another Starbucks in Concourse B.

Subway (Gates 1 & 2)

If you’re lucky, this location will be carrying the Veggie Patty which is now vegan in the US.

Choose a bread or wrap like Hearty Multigrain or Tomato Basil Wrap, add the Veggie Patty and then pile on the veggies.

Farmer’s Fridge (past Cork ‘n Bottle)
