What is vegan at Dunkin’ Donuts?

Unfortunately, Dunkin’ Donuts doesn’t have any vegan donuts, yet… On the other hand, you won’t starve to death there, since the American restaurant chain offers pretty good vegan options. As a company has said they are looking into creating a vegan donut, but for now, the solid vegan options at Dunkin are mostly drinks and a few breakfast items that can be put together to make a plant-based breakfast sandwich.

Dunkin used to have what they called a plant based sausage sandwich, made with Beyond meat, eggs and cheese on an English muffin. This is no longer on the menu. Dunkin Donuts has mentioned that there may be more coming from Beyond Meat at Dunkin Donuts. There are no vegan donuts at Dunkin’ and they took vegan sausage off their vegan menu but here is a description of what is vegan at Dunkin.

What are the vegan options on Dunkin Donuts’s menu?

Luckily, Dunkin’ has a list of vegan options on their news site, however this list is from 2019 and hasn’t been updated since. They are adding new items to their menu which is described as well on their news site.


The breakfast options you try as a vegan in Dunkin’ Donuts can be read below.

  • Bagels – Cinnamon Raisin, Plain, Everything, Sesame
  • English Muffin
  • Hash Browns
  • Oatmeal (available at participating locations)
  • Avocado Toast

Using the plant based options mentioned above, you can make yourself a breakfast sandwich with your choice of bagel or English muffin, but Dunkin’s butter and cream cheese are both non vegan, and if you do not specify no cream cheese or no butter they may automatically add it, so specify “plain, no cream cheese/no butter” and enjoy your bagel or English muffin plain or with the avocado spread. Feeling fancy? Add some hash browns onto the sandwich (and on the side because they are that good, trust me!).

  • Hot/Iced Coffee with almondmilk, oatmilk, or coconutmilk

Does Dunkin Donuts have vegan donuts?

Unfortunately, there are no vegan donuts at Dunkin. So, while you can’t enjoy an actual donut at the restaurant chain (yet), you can enjoy almost all the beverages, and several breakfast options, at all hours of the day on the Dunkin vegan menu. The breakfast restaurant looks to have more vegan menu items coming, but until then, you’ll find only a few plant based foods you can eat at Dunkin’s.

Does Dunkin Donuts have vegan bagels?

The bagels do contain dough conditioners, which sometimes contain animal ingredients, but these were verified to contain only malted barley, flour, and enzymes and no l-cysteine (an animal product).

What fast-food restaurants offer vegan options?

There are many other vegan fast-food options for coffee or breakfast. Sadly, vegan donuts are not available in bigger restaurant chains, like Tim Hortons or Krispy Kreme, but you can try out the breakfast selection with some vegan coffee and sandwiches.

What are the vegan options in Starbucks?

In Starbucks there is a wide selection of vegan coffee with plant-based milk options. You can try vegan bagels, but only the plain ones: Cinnamon Raisin, and Everything Bagel. 

What are the vegan options in Tim Hortons?

Tim Hortons also offers vegan coffee with plant-based milk such as almond, coconut and oat but they are cost extra. Luckily there are vegan options for bagels, so you should try out this restaurant instead of Dunkin Donuts if you are searching for vegan bagels.

What are the vegan options in Einstein Bagels?

Besides Tim Hortons, you have the opportunity to eat vegan bagels at Einstein Bagels. I suggest you try the Apple Cinnamon bagel with cream cheese. Make sure it is vegan by asking them, since it’s not sure whether it is vegan in all locations.
