Everything Vegan at Costa Coffee
Costa Coffee is arguably the most well-known coffee chain from the UK, and you can find their locations pretty much everywhere throughout the country. Their coffee is pretty decent for a chain coffee restaurant, and some people even like it more than Starbucks. They have just as many, if not more vegan-friendly options, and they go beyond drinks. It is super simple to order vegan food and beverages at Costa.
Vegan Coffee Options at Costa Coffee:
Costa Coffee makes it incredibly simple to order vegan-friendly coffee at all of their many locations. You can order any of the following drinks with no milk or creamer or substitute plant-based milk, and you’re all good to go!
- Coconut & Vanilla Latte
- Spiced Cappucino
- Flat White
- Traditional Latte
- Caramel Cortado
- House Filter Coffee
- (coconut/Soy) Milk Babbyccino
- Iced latte
- Iced Americano
- Iced Cortado
- Cold Brew Coffee (Black)
- Coffee Frostino
As mentioned above, order these with plant-based milk, such as coconut or soy, and you can enjoy any of these delicious drinks. A few of these drinks come with whipped cream, so you will need to request no whipped cream. Feel free to add an extra espresso shot if you’re looking for more caffeine; those are always vegan-friendly too.
If you want to spice up your coffee in other ways, all Costa Coffee Syrups are vegan-friendly except their marshmallow and caramel-fudge syrup. Those two are not safe for vegans, but all the others are.

- Mango & Passion Fruit Cooler (Smoothie)

Personally the brownies are too dry for my liking, as I like my brownies gewy, but the gingerbread cookies are downright fantastic.
Some locations added a handful of freshly baked vegan-friendly desserts in late 2021, such as vegan cakes, banana bread, and gingerbread. These items will be clearly labeled, so you should be able to tell if your location carries them when you order.
