Everything Vegan at Perkins (2023)

Perkins has a very limited number of vegan options, but its possible to have a half-decent meal to fill your belly if you so happen to find yourself at Perkins.

I’d recommend avoiding Perkins as a Vegan and opting for a more vegan-friendly restaurant that’s similar, such as Denny’s, or even IHOP, as they both have far more vegan-friendly options and somewhat similar menu choices overall.

Primary Vegan Choices at Perkins:

  • Hash-browns
  • Plain Baked Potato
  • Fried Pickles (Specify No Ranch Dip)
  • French Fries
  • Breakfast Potatoes
  • Plain Oatmeal (Specify to be made with water — syrups are vegan)
  • Sauteed Spinach
  • Broccoli (Specify no butter)
  • Fruit Cup
  • Bagel (Specify no Butter)
  • Sliced Avocado

You can never go wrong with a plain baked potato, and the other potato options are quite good albeit fried and obviously not as healthy as a result. Personally I’d recommend just getting a bagel with sliced avocado with a side of fruit though, as it’s much more “meal-like” than just some potatoes, pickles, or spinach. If you’re creative and don’t mind negotiating with the restaurant a bit you can build some great stuff with the potatoes, spinach, and maybe get some sauteed onions to go with it.

Vegan Salad Dressings at Perkin’s:

  • Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad (No Chicken, Cheese, swap for vegan dressing)
  • Side Salad (No Cheese or Croutons)
  • French Dressing
  • Fat Free French Dressing
  • Italian Dressing
  • Fat Free Italian Dressing
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
  • Saltine Crackers

Your local perkin’s may not have all these vegan dressings, but they should have at least a few, so you can have a pretty good salad at Perkin’s, especially if you pay a premium and get the avocado-one mentioned above which comes with vegan-friendly black bean corn salsa and stuff as well.

Vegan Desserts at Perkin’s:

  • Fruit Cup

That’s the only vegan-friendly “sweet” thing Perkin’s has, although many folks wouldn’t consider it a dessert. The Pie’s at Perkin’s apparently have dairy/eggs, so they are not currently vegan-friendly.
