Perkins Restaurant & Bakery, or simply Perkins, is an American casual dining restaurant that serves breakfast throughout the day, and it also has a bakery that sells pastries.
The Perkins chain was first established in 1958, and today they have over 290 locations across the United States (in 32 states) and Canada (in 4 provinces).
Unfortunately, Perkins doesn’t have any legitimate vegan options, but they have some plant-based sides available which you can order individually to build your dish. Not great, but it could be worse.
If you’re interested in knowing what some of those vegan sides are, keep reading this blog post.
What can vegans eat at Perkins?
Unfortunately, Perkins doesn’t have a main option that is vegan-friendly. Unlike places like Applebee’s, Chili’s, or Taco Bell where you’re able to find Impossible Burgers or complex salads – Perkins has some limitations.
You don’t have much to eat, other than a simple side salad and a few sides, including:
- French Fries
- Breakfast Potatoes
- Plain Oatmeal (they don’t have non-dairy milk, so you have to request it to be with water)
- Fried Pickles (without the Ranch Dip)
- Sautéed Spinach
- Broccoli (Request for no butter)
- Fruit Cup
- Bagel (Request for not butter)
- Sliced Avocado
- Saltine Crackers
We can mix some of these ingredients up to prepare a more solid dish. For example, you can request for a bagel with a few slices of avocado, and some salty french fries.
Apart from the options above, you can also have the following salad dressings:
- Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
- Saltine Crackers
- French Dressing
- Fat Free French Dressing
- Italian Dressing
- Fat Free Italian Dressing
Keep in mind that these dressings may not be available at every location, but you should, at least, have a few of these options.
