Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Vegan Options (2021)

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.

For instance, if you find yourself in Terminal 4, you’ll have a chance to check out Real Food Daily – one of the only FULLY VEGAN restaurants that can be found in an airport (trust us, we’ve looked).

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, then by all means 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

Urth Caffe & Bar

Coffee spot with almond & soy milk available for an additional charge. Per their menu they offer a Vegan Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookie – Dark Chocolate Chunks, roasted Pecans and our secret recipe Vegan Cookie Dough – makes this hard to believe it is vegan!


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.


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

FULLY VEGAN Restaurant. Options include No-Huevos Rancheros and Tofu Veggie Wraps. The Saturday and Sunday Brunch is amazing. Try the Butterscotch Pancakes or the French Toast.

Kogi BBQ Taco Truck

Kimchi Tacos and Burritos

La Brea Bakery

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

Too many vegan options to list. Tons of great fruits and veggies.

Ford’s Filling Station

Urban Herbivore Sandwich (Avocado, Tomato and Sprouts)

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