Norman Y. Mineta San Jose Airport Vegan Guide

San Jose California Vegan Airport

If you’re walking through the Norman Y. Mineta International Airport in San Jose, California 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 San Jose (SJC) 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, without further ado, here is your Vegan Guide to the Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport.

Click on any restaurant’s name to see the complete vegan guide for that chain.


Terminal A Vegan Options


Peet’s Coffee & Tea (Near Gate 12)

Peet’s Coffee has something that many of the big coffee chains have yet to get on board with – a completely vegan breakfast sandwich!

The Everything Plant Based Sandwich includes a Beyond Breakfast Sandwich, Just Egg and vegan cheddar on a toasted everything bagel thin. Pair that up with a great cup of coffee and what else could you ask for?

FYI: There is another Peet’s located in Terminal B

Starbucks (Gate 13)

If all else fails you can almost always count on finding a Starbucks inside an airport (There are three inside San Jose Airport). They have way too many vegan-friendly drinks to list here, but I’m going to recommend both the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso and the Ice Chocolate Almondmilk Shaken Espresso.

If you’re also getting food, I 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 are two other Starbucks located in Terminal B – one by Baggage Clamin and the other near Gate 22.


Terminal B Vegan Options


Chick-fil-A (Between Gates 24 & 25)

You can always go with the Waffle Fries if you’re looking for a quick snack to hold you over to your destination. If you’re wanting something a bit (okay, a lot) more healthy then the Kale Crunch Side is vegan as well.

Finally, this will require a bit of modification, but a modified Cool Wrap is actually really delicious. Order it with NO chicken, cheese or avocado lime dressing. Grab some Polynesian Sauce to dip it in.
