Denver International Airport Vegan Options (2023 Guide)

Vegan Options at Denver International Airport

If you’re reading this, there is a good chance you’re currently standing in (or landing into) the Denver International Airport.

Maybe you’re on your phone while checking out one of the cool murals the Denver Airport is known for and you’re trying to figure out where you’re going to get a bite to eat.

Finding vegan options when you’re traveling is already hard enough and airports add the added element of ‘what if’. You find a decent vegan option as you’re walking through your terminal, but then you wonder ‘what if’ there is a better option further down.

That’s why we created this guide!

This guide will give you every option we have found plus ones our VeggL users have let us know about! Some locations may even have a link that will take you to a complete vegan options guide for that particular restaurant.

Keep in mind, though, that sometimes options at airport locations can differ from the standard menu. If you notice something that needs to be corrected – please let us know!


Vegan Options at Denver Airport


A Gates


Click on the name of any chain restaurant to see the full guide showing all their vegan options.

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream (Center Core)

Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops generally have a couple of non-dairy (vegan) flavors available. Ask prior to ordering. 

Caribou Coffee (Center Core)

Check with this location to verify which non-dairy milk they are available but it should be almond, coconut and/or oat. Order a coffee, latte, hot tea, oatmeal or a bagel (blueberry, plain, everything, sesame).

Caribou also offers a Just Egg Roasted Tomato & Pesto Flatbread. Airport locations can vary in what is offered, we suggest asking prior to ordering.

Dunkin’ Donuts (Center Core)

Multiple bagels (like Everything and Cinnamon Raisin) are available. Avocado Toast and Hashbrowns make Dunkin a decent choice.

Dunkin’ also now offers both oat, almond and coconut milk (with an extra charge) which makes many coffee combinations possible.

Freshens (Center Core)

Freshens is a ‘healthy options’ spot that are often found in airports. They have a bunch of vegan smoothies that you can choose from (straight from the menu, no need to modify). You can also ‘create-your-own’ salad as well.

Panda Express (Center Core)

Panda Express Vegan Options
Overhead of all the vegan options we have listed in our ‘Quick Order’ except the Eggplant Tofu which disappeared from many Panda Express menus last March.

Beyond Orange Chicken*, Chow Mein* and Vegetable Springs* are all great accidentally vegan options at Panda Express.

Pair these with steamed white or brown rice and add a side their yummy Super Greens.

Quiznos (A34)

Sub, sammies & salads are at Quiznos. We have a couple of options listed on their vegan guide (with modifications) or you can create your own!


B Gates


Click on the name of any chain restaurant to see the full guide showing all their vegan options.

Chick-fil-A (Center Core)

Chick-fil-A’s Cool Wrap (with modifications) is a great airport/plane meal. You could add Waffle Fries, their Kale Crunch Side or a Fruit Cup as a side. We suggest verifying you can make modifications prior to ordering.

Modern Market (Center Core)

A VeggL user let us know that Modern Market offers a Buddha bowl with tofu, rice, peanuts, broccoli, cabbage, peanuts and carrots with a spicy peanut sauce. We have not verified that this is vegan; ask prior to ordering. 

Thank you for this recommendation, Cynthia!

Garbanzo Fresh Mediterranean (Center Core)

One of our readers let us know that Garbanzo had a variety of vegan options and they were able to grab some fresh falafel and hummus. Garbanzo is located on the ground floor in the B Gates area. Thanks Lydia!

Qdoba (Center Core, Mezzanine)

Qdoba has some excellent vegan options. Unfortunately, we have been made aware that this location does not offer Impossible Meat; 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.

Snooze (Center Core/Mezzanine)

Snooze is a breakfast & brunch spot that was recommended by our VeggL user, Robbie. Verify which options the airport location offers that are vegan. We know they do have tofu & soyrizo.

Our Snooze guide also states vegan pancakes but we have been made aware that the Denver airport location no longer carries them. 

Caribou Coffee (Mezzanine)

Check with this location to verify which non-dairy milk they are available but it should be almond, coconut and/or oat. Order a coffee, latte, hot tea, oatmeal or a bagel (blueberry, plain, everything, sesame).

Caribou also offers a Just Egg Roasted Tomato & Pesto Flatbread. Airport locations can vary in what is offered, we suggest asking prior to ordering.

Jamba Juice (Mezzanine)

Many vegan smoothie options can be ordered straight off the menu (Protein Berry Workout with Soy Protein and the Greens n’ Ginger are our favorites).

They have multiple non-dairy milk alternatives (vanilla coconutmilk, unsweetened almondmilk, soymilk, Oatly oatmilk), including So Delicious Oatmilk Frozen dessert, that you can utilize.

A couple of different Juice options as well.

Starbucks Strawberry Creme Frappuccino with Oat Milk and NO whip.

Starbucks (B32 & B80)

Plenty of coffee drinks & combos you can create with oat, almond, soy or coconut milk. We have a list of Starbucks options broken down by hot & cold drinks plus modifications.

And don’t forget they have a few food options. Look for the Chickpea & Avocado Protein Box, a bagel (plain, cinnamon raisin or everything), Strawberry Overnight Grains or Oatmeal. They also have plenty of snacks. Check the ingredient lists.

Que Bueno! Mexican Grille (B52)

On the Denver Airport Dining Guide it does note on their page that they have vegan options. We’ve now been told by a VeggL Reader (thank you Lupe!) that Que Bueno! allows you to sub any meat on a taco/enchilada with a veggie mix.

They also have nachos (order with no cheese) and chips and guac. Be sure to confirm with your server that these options are all vegan.

Root Down (Center Core)

Root Down is an award-winning nationally acclaimed restaurant right inside the Denver Airport. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and have a large variety of vegan options.

If you want something special and unique, as opposed to just a quick grab from a chain, this is the place to try.

(Remember the tram inside the airport can pretty quickly take you anywhere in the airport.)

Einstein Bros. Bagels (Center Core)

A ton of great vegan bagel options (honestly way too many to list here – click the Einstein Bros. link to see them all) and Einstein makes pretty good coffee in my opinion. There are also one or two vegan lunch choices as well.

Starbucks (Center Core)

Plenty of coffee drinks & combos you can create with oat, almond, soy or coconut milk. We have a list of Starbucks options broken down by hot & cold drinks plus modifications.

And don’t forget they have a few food options. Look for the Chickpea & Avocado Protein Box, a bagel (plain, cinnamon raisin or everything), Strawberry Overnight Grains or Oatmeal. They also have plenty of snacks. Check the ingredient lists.

Auntie Anne’s (C26)

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

Have you walked right by Auntie Anne’s your whole (vegan) life because you assumed there is no way any of those delicious smelling pretzels are vegan? If so, then you’ve been missing out just like I was.

The Original, Cinnamon Sugar, Sweet Almond, Raisin AND Jalapeno pretzels are vegan! Just order with no butter and either of the vegan dips – Marinara or Sweet Glaze Dip.

Be prepared to wait. When ordering with NO butter means they have to make fresh.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (C29)

With 3 different non-dairy milk options (soy, coconut and almond) you have plenty of options to get your morning (or afternoon) caffeine kick!

Caribou Coffee (C32)

Check with this location to verify which non-dairy milk they are available but it should be almond, coconut and/or oat. Order a coffee, latte, hot tea, oatmeal or a bagel (blueberry, plain, everything, sesame).

Caribou also offers a Just Egg Roasted Tomato & Pesto Flatbread. Airport locations can vary in what is offered, we suggest asking prior to ordering.
