San Diego International Airport Vegan Guide (2022)

San Diego Airport Vegan Options

Are you currently looking for vegan options in the San Diego International Airport?

You’re in the right place!

In this guide we’ll breakdown each concourse, giving you the best vegan options available, where they are and a couple menu suggestions.

Note: Some locations are still temporarily closed. We suggest checking on the San Diego Airport Dining Page to the most updated openings and closings.

Many chain locations names are clickable and will take you to the complete vegan guide for that restaurant.

Finally, we found a few local restaurants inside the airport, but couldn’t determine which, if any, offered good vegan options. If you know of any good options that we’re missing, please reach out and let us know so we can improve this guide!


Vegan Options at San Diego Airport


Terminal 1

Einstein Bros. Bagels (Gate 3)

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.

Terminal 2

Einstein Bros. Bagels (Pre-Security)

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.

Qdoba (Sunset Cove)

Qdoba has some excellent vegan options. Unfortunately, Impossible Meat may not be offered at airport locations; however, you have plenty to choose from including their rice, beans, fajita veggies, salsas, chips, and guacamole. 

Low stress ordering and delicious food makes Qdoba a great pick.

Starbucks (Gate 37)

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.

Oat Milk is now available at all Starbucks and there is almost an infinite number of Starbucks vegan drinks you can order using one of the dairy-free milk alternatives (Starbucks also carries Almond, Soy and Coconut milk)

On the food side, the options get a little less exciting even with the recent release of a ‘vegan protein box’ featuring chickpea bites that reminds us of a grown up version of a Lunchable.
