Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Vegan Options (2022)

vegan at los angeles airport

The Los Angeles International Airport is one of, if not the most vegan friendly airport in the US.

Whereas in most airports just finding the good vegan options is our goal. At LAX, we want to make sure you don’t miss out on some of the AWESOME vegan options that the Los Angeles Airport has to offer.

We have separated the airport by terminals. We’ll give you the best vegan-friendly locations in the terminal along with a few suggestions of items you can order.

You can click on the names of the majority of these places (the chains) and it will take you to a dedicated vegan guide for that restaurant.

If you know information that can help make this page better or if you see an update needs to be made, please let us know!


Vegan Options at Los Angeles Airport


Midfield Satellite Concourse

Farmer’s Fridge (Great Hall)

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.


Terminal 1


Einstein Bros Bagels

Over a dozen different vegan bagels to choose from including popular choices like Cinnamon Raisin, Everything and Blueberry. Top your bagel with a choice of natural peanut butter, natural grape jelly or hummus. And don’t forget the coffee!

California Pizza Kitchen

There’s not a whole lot of outright vegan options at California Pizza Kitchen, but if you follow the link to our CPK Cheat Sheet (click the name) you can have quite a few choices with a few modifications.

Trejo’s Tacos

Vegan Tacos

Rock & Brews

Salad options. Just make sure to ask for no meat & cheese

Chick-Fil-A

Chick Fil A Wrap and Fries
The Chick Fil-A Cool Wrap with no chicken, cheese or dressing with a side of Waffle Fries.

The Waffle Fries are vegan (so is the multigrain bagel if it’s breakfast) and you can get a little creative with a wrap or a salad. Personally I like ordering the Cool Wrap with NO Chicken, Cheese or Avocado Lime Dressing (sub the Chili Lime Vinaigrette).

That’s a little more complicated than I like to make my orders, but it’s really good.

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Tofu, Rice and Veggies with a few different choices of sauces. Also offers Edamame if you want a quick snack.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

Almond, Coconut and Soy milk available along with, not surprisingly, lots of coffees and teas.

They also have a Banana Nut Loaf to go with your drink of choice.

Urth Caffe & Bar

Coffee spot with oat, almond & soy milk available for an additional charge. Per their menu, they offer a Vegan Sprout Sandwich. 


Terminal 2


BUILT (Custom Burgers)

BUILT has a veggie burger (Impossible Burger) that is vegan with your choice of toppings.

Fresh Brothers Pizza

Offers a Vegan Cheese (Daiya), Vegan Pepperoni and even a Vegan Da Works (Daiya Mozz, plant based pepperoni, Impossible Sausage, Mushrooms, pepper & onions) You can also grab some Vegan Tenders or a Salad.

Starbucks (One Location Pre-Security, One Location in Terminal 2)

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.

Lots of drink choices at Starbucks and a variety of simple food options including the new(ish) chickpea protein box (pictured above). It’s not the most amazing thing you’ll ever eat, but as a quick bite in the airport, could work really well.

Breeze

Breeze features made from scratch meals that include oats, smoothies, fresh guac and chips, and veggie jars. You can order up to 24 hours in advance on their web app, and choose your pick up time. 


Terminal 3

Panda Express

Eggplant Tofu, Chow Mein and Spring Rolls are the main vegan options at Panda Express

Starbucks

Tons of vegan drink varieties along with bagels, oatmeal and a variety of snacks. As of the Spring of 2021, Starbucks has a ‘vegan protein box’ that features Chickpea bites and reminds us of a Lunchable for grown-ups.


Terminal 4


Campanile

Vegetable & Hummus Cup … classic hummus, celery, carrots & red bell pepper

Kogi BBQ Taco Truck

Kimchi Tacos and Burritos

La Brea Bakery

Baby Kale Salad with grapefruit and pistachios and a Quinoa Salad with roasted beets

Dunkin’ Donuts

Dunkin’s Avocado Toast

Lots of coffee options including multiple plant based milks to choose from. On the food side, they have a few varieties of bagel and some pretty tasty hash browns. They also recently added avocado toast (pictured above) to the menu.


Terminal 5


Farmers Market

Pieces of fruit and snacks, like pretzels & hummus, can be found here.

But be aware a VeggL user let us know this could be considered a small food court so it may take time to find options. 

Ford’s Filling Station

Organic Steel Cut Oats (breakfast) and the Urban Herbivore Sandwich … smashed avocado, tomato, cucumber, onion sprout, and pickled onion. There is mayo on it. Check to see if it is vegan.

A VeggL user let us know this sandwich is no longer available; however, it is still on the menu. 

Lemonade

Thanks to a VeggL follower, Luke, we have been told that Lemonade rotates their vegan options regularly so we cannot guarantee that you will find an entrée but you should at least be able to find a couple of sides.

You will have to ask what is available at your time of visiting. 

Skewers by Morimoto

Tofu and Veggie Kebabs

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf

Almond, Coconut and Soy milk are available along with, not surprisingly, lots of coffees and teas.

They used to have a vegan banana loaf but we were told it’s no longer available. Check to see if any other vegan options are available. 


Terminal 6


Earthbar

Smoothies, Coffee, and Kombucha. Verify vegan options.

Point the Way Cafe

Vegan options show availability on their online menu; however, we have been made aware by a VeggL user that none could be found when visiting the restaurant (as of October 2022). We suggest asking if you happen to stop by.

Carl’s Jr now carries the Beyond Burger. A Beyond Famous Star (no cheese no mayo) is an easy go-to choice. They also carry a Beyond Sausage Burrito for breakfast (order with no egg and cheese)

Corona Bar and Grill

The only info we have on Corona Bar and Grill is their description which specifically states that they offer vegan items. They did not have a menu available so you’ll have to stop by and ask what those options are. 


Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B)


800 Degrees Pizza

We initially had listed that 800 Degrees Pizza offers a non-dairy cheese. We recently (September 2022) were made aware they do not by a VeggL user. We suggest verifying before ordering.

Border Grill 

We have not confirmed vegan options or the cross-contamination of chips, but Border Grill does offer Chips & Guac or Salsa. You can ask if they can make anything else vegan.

Asian Street Eats by Chef Hung

Vegetable Potstickers and Mixed Rice Bowls with Tofu

If you’ve ordered a Vegan Banh Mi from here in the past, as of September 2022, they no longer do. 🙁

P.F. Chang’s

Vegan Options include Veggie Lettuce Wraps (which are amazing), Ma Po Tofu and Thai Chili.

Panda Express

Panda Express Chow Mein and Spring Rolls
Chow Mein, Rice and Spring Rolls from Panda Express (and don’t forget the fortune cookie!)

Chow Mein, Super Greens, and Spring Rolls are the main vegan options at Panda Express. As of September 7, 2022 Beyond Orange Chicken* is available at all locations. Still says for a limited time.

We suggest checking with this location to verify what options they have available that are vegan. We had a few listed here but received info from a VeggL user that they struggled to get anything.

We also suggest checking cross-contamination of the burger if that is an issue for you prior to ordering.
