Tim Horton’s

Over 2,750 stores across Canada, and over 350 locations in the United States. Many are open 24 hours.

The 12 grain, plain, blueberry, cinnamon raisin, everything, pretzel and sesame seed bagels are vegan, as is the Homestyle Biscuit, English muffin, white sandwich bun, or whole wheat sandwich bun.

Their hashbrowns and potatoe wedges are also vegan. Most locations will also gladly make a vegan sandwich for you on a bagel or bun of your choice with hashbrowns, tomatoes, lettuce and cucumber. Just ask!

For drinks, their chocolatey drizzle is vegan, enjoy!

Their oatmeal is also vegan. Click here to review their ingredient chart.

Starbucks

On Starbucks’ website they state that: “Allergen information is currently unavailable online for our beverage selections. We are actively working to bring that information to you. If you have an allergen concern, please feel free to ask our baristas to check the ingredient labels or click on our Customer Service page. We cannot guarantee that any of our beverages are allergen free because we use shared equipment and handle allergens throughout the store.”

However, their latest allergen menu from 2015 says that the following do not contain animal products:
Syrups
Light syrups
Teas
Fruit frappuccinos
Starbucks refresha
Condiments (except the chocolate powder and honey)

The caramel for caramel macchiato is not vegan

Regarding food, Starbucks just recently came out with a vegan oatmeal cookie – it is listed as vegan on the menu, as if their gauacamole which you can get on a bagel. The whole grain oatmeal is also vegan, which you can top with nuts and seeds, maple brown sugar, and dried fruit. There is also a vegan veggie and hummus, and rice veggie salad bowl.

Not recommended: 

Sorry, there are no vegan treats at Krispy Kreme or Country Style donuts!

New York Fries

Several locations across Canada, as well as a few in Korea and U.A.E. But none in New York City.

Here you can get the fries topped with cajun or california seasoning, the bread and butter pickles, sauerkraut, and tabasco jalapeno and garlic.

The Pickle Barrel

Twelve locations around the GTA

Kenneth writes: My office were going to order from the Pickle Barrel so I called their office about vegan options and got this positive response: “Thank you for your request regarding our veggie burger. Yes the burger is vegan, the bun is as well (although this is made in a facility that uses eggs so they do claim it may have come in contact), of course the pesto Aioli does have eggs so you can simply ask to not have this on the burger.  As far as making another meal vegan we can certainly try our best- was there a specific dish you had in mind? Please let me know and I will check to see if this is possible.” – Director of Operations, July 2011 We don’t have any other information about other options, but as you can see, they seem very accomodating… you just need to ask.
