Everything Vegan at Tim Hortons (Late-2021)

Tim Hortons Vegan Options Logo

Tim Hortons has some pretty great vegan options, including great options such as Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwiches and breakfast classics such as coffee, bagels, hashbrowns, and many other vegan-friendly goodies that we’ll cover below.

While Tim Horton’s does have some faults, such as conveniently running out of soymilk all the time, they are probably the most vegan-friendly fast-food breakfast spot in Canada and us vegans have no trouble eating at their locations or getting a relatively tasty drink.

Vegan Primary Food Items at Tim Hortons:

  • Beyond Sausage Lettuce & Tomato (Not all locations)
  • Beyond Meat Burger (Not all locations)
  • All Beyond Meat Entrees if ordered without cheese or eggs
  • Mixed Berry Oatmeal
  • Regular Oatmeal
  • Usually another Oatmeal flavor or two
  • Garden Veggie Sandwich (Specify no cream cheese)
  • Harvest Vegetable Soup (Not all locations)
  • Garden Salad (Should be Vegan as-is with dressing)
Unfortunately Beyond Meat isn’t available at all Tim Hortons Locations anymore, however it’s still being sold in British Colombia (BC) and Ontario, as well as all locations in big cities in Canada. As for US/UK folks, well it just varies. Best of luck.
We’ll go over the breads, and of course coffee below, as to me that’s the most important part about Tim Hortons — although I must admit it’s nice that they have beyond meat and vegan-by-default oatmeal at many of their locations.

Vegan Sides at Tim Hortons:

  • Hash Browns
  • Potato Wedges (Gravy is Vegan if you want it)
  • Kettle Chips
  • English Muffin
  • Homestyle Biscuit
  • Peanut Butter
  • Multiple Jams/Jellies (All Vegan)

Remember you can always slap a hash-brown or some wedges on a biscuit or jam onto a muffin and eat that as a quick snack or small breakfast — or to bulk up a lighter “main” option like oatmeal to make it a hefty meal. But you can also do that by adding a bagel, or simply opting for a bagel or piece of their bread that we’ll cover in the next section.

Vegan Bread & Bagel Options at Tim Hortons:

  • Cinnamon Raisin Bagel
  • Plain Bagel
  • Everything Bagel
  • Sesame-Seed Bagel
  • Blueberry Bagel
  • English Muffin
  • Homestyle Biscuit
  • Whole Wheat Bread
  • White Bread
  • Tortilla

Tim Hortons doesn’t have a vegan cream cheese like some of their US-based counterparts such as Einstein Bagels, but hey they aren’t a bagel shop. They’re a general breakfast-oriented cafe. So you can’t complain too much about this, although it’d be nice if they had it — that’s for sure!

Vegan Drinks at Tim Hortons:

  • Frozen Lemonade & other slushy-fruit drinks (Raspberry Cooler, etc)
  • All Coffees if taken Black (without Milk/Creamer)
  • All Coffees if Taken with Soymilk (Not all locations, but generally available nationwide and internationally).
  • Apple Cider (Can be ordered Hot – YUM)
  • All Teas if you don’t add dairy-milk

If you aren’t sure what coffee types Tim Hortons has, it’s really just the standard stuff like regular black coffee (Americano), Expresso’s, and Cappuccino. They have multiple types/styles though; it’s not McDonalds. They have real coffee.

While Tim Hortons smoothies aren’t vegan-friendly personally I love the lemonade/berry slushy type things, which make for a good, albeit less healthy than real fruit, replacement for a sweet fruity drink.

Vegan Desserts at Tim Hortons:

  • None

While there’s the drinks above that you can make into candy-like sweet abominations, as I must admit I have done in the past, there aren’t any proper vegan desserts at Tim Hortons in the USA or Canada. In some UK locations they apparently sometimes have a vegan brownie or something with a V sticker on it, but really that’s just a local thing in certain UK locations rather than a Tim Hortons product.

Does Tim Hortons have Vegan-Friendly Donuts?

Unfortunately Tim Horton’s doesn’t have any vegan-friendly donuts currently. They do have many other vegan options you could have for breakfast and some sweet drinks to satisfy a sweet tooth if that’s what you’re looking for.
