Eating Vegan

Dining out vegan can be tricky, but at Panera, we think it should be easy for you to eat the way you want. (Valid 6/28/17 – 9/5/17.)

Here we’ve gathered a collection of our already-vegan options, plus some choices that can be made vegan with just a swap or two. Our definition of a vegan item is a food with no animal sources: no meat, fish, shellfish, milk, egg or honey products, and no enzymes and rennet from animal sources allowed.

Of course, all of our menu items (vegan and non-vegan) are prepared in the same kitchen, so while we’re happy to make your order just the way you want, we can’t guarantee that there will be no cross-contact between ingredients.

One more thing to note: new items are added to our menu all the time, and some items are available only on a regional, test or seasonal basis. The list below will be updated periodically, but for the most up-to-date information, be sure to call or visit your local bakery-cafe and ask to speak to a manager, or check the nutrition information available at and on our mobile app.
