Vegan Options at San Francisco Airport


For chain restaurants in this guide, click on the name to see a full menu. Be aware that their options may vary in the airport though.


Harvey Milk Terminal 1


The Little Chihuahua (B3)

Great Mexican restaurant where you can build your own bowl, burrito or tacos. Check with this location and verify the following options because we could not see the airport specific menu. It may or may not be the same as their other locations. 

Your options include soy chorizo, pinto or black beans, nachos or chilaquiles with NO cheese or sour cream and fried plantains. There also have a couple of salad options. Just let them know you are vegan. 

Amy’s Drive Thru (B6)

A sustainably focused cafe that advertises having vegan options.

Everything at Amy’s is vegetarian and egg-free, and EVERYTHING on the menu can be made vegan! That means the burgers, salads, milkshakes, fries, chili cheese fries, baked goods, mac and cheese, etc. are all vegan options if you just say you want them vegan.

Proper Food (B8)

Proper Food offers a few breakfast and lunch vegan options and even labels them vegan on the menu. They do change their menu seasonally so be aware the following items may or may not be available but here’s what we have found…

Overnight Oats, Chia Pudding, Soba Noodle Salad, Soup, a Vegan Wrap, PB & J, various snacks and oat milk for your coffee. Open til 1pm.

Goldilocks (B18)

Goldilocks features Filipino cuisine and offers vegan-friendly options like Vegan Pancit Bihon Rice Noodles, Vegetable Stir Fry and even Carioca (A Filipino deep-fried chewy mocci ball with a caramelized sugar crust). Goldilocks Menu


Terminal 2


Dogpatch Bakehouse & Caffe (C27)

Coffee, salads & sandwiches. We received info from a VeggL user that the avocado toast is vegan if you order it with NO cheese but other than that, we suggest you ask what other vegan options they have. 

Thank you, Sue!

The Plant Cafe (D4)

The Plant Cafe has multiple vegan options. Although the name could suggest a 100% vegan restaurant, it is not. We suggest verifying which items are vegan prior to ordering. 

Peet’s Coffee (D7 / D15)

Peet’s offers coffee with non-dairy milk options. If you are looking for their vegan breakfast sandwich, we have been made aware this airport location does not have it. 


Terminal 3


 

Starbucks Pink Drink
Starbucks Pink Drink

Starbucks (Arrival Level)

With the many options of non-dairy milk (oat, almond, soy, coconut) available at all Starbucks, there is almost an infinite number of vegan drinks you can order.

On the food side, you have a few options including the Chickpea Bites & Avocado Protein Box and Bagels (plain, cinnamon raisin, everything). Airport locations may be limited but also check for their Strawberry Overnight Grains and snacks. 

Sankaku (E2)

A Japanese restaurant offering quite a few vegetable dishes as well as edamame. Ask which items specifically do not contain any animal ingredients prior to ordering or can be modified. 

Burger King (E2)

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

The first fast food chain that brought us the Impossible Burger*. Pair it with some fries and you’ve got a quick and easy vegan-friendly meal as you roll through the airport. Be aware of cross-contamination. If this is an issue for you, ask if they can cook your burger in the microwave. 

Peet’s Coffee (E3 / F3)

Peet’s offers coffee with non-dairy milk options. If you are looking for their vegan breakfast sandwich, we have been made aware this airport location does not have it. 

Dogpatch Bakehouse & Caffe (E6)

Coffee, salads & sandwiches. We received info from our VeggL user Sue that the avocado toast is vegan if you order it with NO cheese but other than that, we suggest you ask what other vegan options they have. 

San Francisco Giants Club House (F13)

Their Beyond Burger specifically says vegan and even includes a vegan aoli. We’re not sure if their fries share a fryer with animal products. You can ask if this is a concern for you. 

Sidewalk Juice (Food Court near Gates F11-F22)

Cold press raw juices, fruit salads, acai fruit bowls and specialty coffee. Ask which items are vegan and if they have any non-dairy milk if need be. 

Pie Five Pizza (Food Court near F11-F22)

Our VeggL user, Sue, let us know awesome info about Pie Five Pizza! They offer vegan cheese and impossible meatballs. 

Ladle & Leaf Restaurant (Food Court near F11-F22)

Offers a seasonal menu with soups, salads and sandwiches. While they do notate which items are vegetarian and dairy free, they do not notate which items are vegan. 

We suggest asking which items are vegan or can be made vegan. They do offer organic tofu, grains, veggies and dressings so you should be able to find something. 

District Market (Food Court near F11-F22)

A VeggL user let us know that the District Market is grab-n-go. They have clearly marked vegan options; a sandwich and salads. She said look for the purple sticker. 

Thank you for the info, Bridget!

Amoura (Food Court Near F11-F22)

Mediterranean cuisine with falafel, hummus and pita. We have not verified which items are specifically vegan.

However, we did get notified by a VeggL user that the rice does contain butter. We suggest asking what your options are before ordering.
