St Louis Lambert International Airport Vegan Guide (2022)

If you’re at the St Louis Lambert International Airport in St Louis and are trying to find what’s 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 are here planning ahead then you get a gold star. 😉

We’ve taken the time to scour through the St Louis (STL) 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 St Louis Lambert International Airport.

Many of the chains listed below are linked to their complete Vegan Guide. Click on their name to see it.


Pre-Security (T1 Lower Level)


Starbucks

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. The Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso is a favorite of mine and can be ordered vegan as-is straight off the menu.

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 Avocado, Justin’s Hazelnut or Classic Almond Butter as a spread.

FYI: If you want to wait until after you’ve gone through security, there are five (yes, five!) more Starbucks located inside the airport.

Starbucks (A5)

FYI: Sorry if this is going to get repetitive, but there are still four more Starbucks locations in the St Louis Airport.

Dunkin’ and Baskin Robbins (A17)

Dunkin’ Avocado Toast with Roasted Tomatoes

There is a Dunkin’ and Baskin Robbins combo location near Gate A17.

Dunkin’ has plenty of coffee options and the Cinnamon Raisin, Plain, Sesame and Everything Bagels at Dunkin’ are all vegan-friendly.

If you have a hankering for ice cream and get lucky, this Baskin location might be carrying one of their non-dairy options like non-dairy chocolate chip cookie dough or non-dairy salted fudge bar.

FYI: There is another Dunkin’ – Baskin Robbins location in E Gates.


C Gates


Starbucks (C2 and C17)

E Gates


Auntie Anne’s (E12)

Auntie Anne’s Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel (order fresh with NO butter) with their Sweet Glaze Sauce.

Auntie Anne’s pretzels can be ordered vegan IF they are willing to make yours without the butter that is added BEFORE they go into the oven. This isn’t just a VeggL hack, it’s something that they themselves promote on their website.

Having said that, we’ve had mixed luck trying to do this ourselves. Some locations are willing to do it and some won’t.

Best case scenario you’ll have a bit of a wait because your pretzel will need to be made and cooked. Worst case scenario you get your hopes up for one of those delicious-smelling pretzels and you end up getting let down.

Dunkin’ and Baskin Robbins (E16)

Dunkin’ has plenty of coffee options and the Cinnamon Raisin, Plain, Sesame and Everything Bagels at Dunkin’ are all vegan-friendly.

If you have a hankering for ice cream and get lucky, this Baskin location might be carrying one of their non-dairy options like non-dairy chocolate chip cookie dough or non-dairy salted fudge bar.

California Pizza Kitchen (E16)

California Pizza Kitchen has some really nice vegan options.

If you’re in the mood for pizza we suggest opting for the Plant Based BBQ Chicken Pizza – just order with NO cheese. It comes with plant-based chicken, BBQ sauce, red onions and fresh cilantro. (You can also add pineapple)

If you want something a little bit lighter then you may want to try the Lettuce Wraps with Chinese Vegetables. They come with fresh shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, rice sticks and scallions tossed in spicy ginger soy sauce with lettuce wraps.

Burger King (E16)

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

The home of one of the original Impossible Burgers, the Impossible Whopper, Burger King can hit the spot if you need some quick vegan-friendly fast food.

Grab an Impossible Whopper – order with NO mayo – and a side of fries.

Starbucks (E16 and E29)

Starbucks has way too many vegan-friendly drinks to list here, most with either no or only slight modifications needed to order them vegan. The Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso is a favorite of mine and can be ordered vegan as-is straight off the menu.

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.
