Everything Vegan at The Counter (2023)

The Counter is a build-your-own burger joint that was started in California and has since gone International to many different markets.

They have many great vegan options, well one vegan veggie burger and vegan cheese option, but also some tasty sides to go with it.

Some locations actually have a second vegan patty (the impossible burger patty) so if you aren’t into that veggie-filled patty like I am then you do have another choice!

Vegan Starters/Appetizers at The Counter:

  • Fried Plantains
  • Two Grilled Vegetable Skewers
  • Shoestring Fries
  • Sweet Potato Fries
  • Sweet Sriracha Brussel Sprouts

Not all of the above are available at all locations, however they should have at least 2-3 of the above. You can also ask for the various vegan burger sauces (see below) for dipping sauce if you want more than just basic ketchup if you like dipping your fries.

Vegan Main Courses at The Counter:

  • Vegan Veggie Patty on Ciabatta Bun
  • Vegan Impossible Patty on Ciabatta Bun
  • Asian Veggie Bowl (has Vegan Veggie Patty)

Make sure to check out what sauces/toppings you’d want with these, as there’s TONS at The Counter, including Vegan Cheese and Mayo at many of their locations — but to clarify as some people have asked trying to confirm despite us listing it above, yes the counter’s veggie/vegan burger is vegan-friendly. It should be as-is as normally it doesn’t come with cheese on it, if it does you may need to remove that, but beyond that it should be vegan friendly.
