Charlotte Vegan Breakfast Options

Here’s a few spots you can find a good vegan breakfast or brunch in the Queen City. Charlotte vegan breakfast options have greatly improved in the past year. 


This totally vegetarian restaurant has some of the best brunch options in Charlotte. It’s menu is on point as far as being vegan friendly and delicious. Essentially everything can be made vegan on their latest brunch menu.

VeganCLT recommends: Chicken and Waffles and Cinnamon Rolls.


They’ve got your classics made vegan with waffles, biscuits and gravy, or the BBQ and grits bowl.

VeganCLT recommends: The Herc Bowl features BBQ soy curls, home fries, spicy mayo with steamed kale and a biscuit.

Oh My Soul

Serving coffee and waffles in NoDa with a large patio space, Oh My Soul is a top choice for vegan brunch. 

Queen City Grounds

With half the ownership being vegan, you can be sure that they will continue to offer solid vegan options. This is the Uptown home for Nightflyer Roastworks who roast in-house and vegan-friendly vegan breakfast and lunch options. They also have a pastry case with several vegan options.

Deli St

Deli St now offers a fantastic vegan breakfast menu with items such as Vegan AF (bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant).  

Plant Joy

Plant Joy does brunch on Sunday from 11-2. The Florentine is delicious. (Plant Joy post)


Veltree moved from University to Ballantyne Village in south Charlotte. Spicy chicken and waffles, french toast, and biscuits and gravy definitely make Veltree a vegan brunch destination. 

Sanctary Bistro

Sanctuary Bistro offers Saturday brunch with gluten free options.Options include scrambles and waffles. 

Undercurrent Coffee

Located in Plaza Midwood, the menu clearly lists the vegan options featuring a chia bowl, avocado toast, and two salad bowls.

Common Market

Pretty much any time of day, there will be something for vegans at Common Market. Typically have a vegan brunch special on Sunday, but serve The Scrambler (tofu, red onion, vegenaise, spinach, vegan cheese and optional vegan chorizo) daily.

EastSide Local

Super vegan friendly spot on the east side of Charlotte. Plenty of options such as bagels with vegan cream cheese or other toppings, grit bowls, avocado toast, and Biscuit Impossible (egg, cheese, sausage). 

Central Coffee

The best coffee shop in Charlotte because they always have vegan zucchini bread that is fantastic. Many times you can find vegan treats from Move That Dough Baking Co. as well.

Suarez Bakery

If you need a dependable stop to find a cheap, delicious glazed doughnut in the Park Road Shopping Center.

Move That Dough Baking Co.

Consistently offering doughnuts and other treats at EastSide Local and around town.  

Namastay Kitchen

The menu does mark the few vegan options they have such as the Tofu Florentine Scramble and the Namastay Bowl.

Flying Biscuit

Offer both a menu-specified Vegan Tofu Scramble and Vegan BBQ Burrito. A few other items are likely vegan if they leave off the cheese, but the burrito sounds like a solid option.


One of the items that stands out on the menu is the Vegan Bliss Pancakes. It is actually the only item that clearly identifies itself as vegan friendly. However, they do have both tofu and soyrizo on the menu so there may be more options available.
