Vegan Yosemite Guide

We stayed for two nights in Yosemite lodge in Yosemite National park. I was a bit worried there wouldn’t be any vegan options in the restaurants there but I was pleasantly surprised. Here is my vegan Yosemite guide.

Yosemite Lodge has its own complex with a gift shop, bar, restaurant, counter food service canteen and even a Starbucks. We checked out Base Camp Eatery where there were three counters each with a different food. One with pizza, one with burgers and one where you could pick a main and two sides (there was an American option or a world flavours option). I found that the burger counter served a Beyond Burger! It was quite a basic burger with onion and lettuce but as I was expecting to live off crisps for three days it was a very welcome basic burger! At the counter where you could pick one main and two sides there was a vegetable stir fry and an eggplant stir fry with tofu. This might be vegan but I imagine the noodles that go with it may contain egg.

The Valley Shop has your usual accidentally vegan snacks including popcorn and crisps. It also had a variety of dried fruits. We picked up some dried Kiwi because I’ve never had it dried before.

For lunch we picked up some food from Base Camp Eatery again. I had a massive vegan hummus wrap which was very tasty and fresh. It was the only lunch option for me there although there was also a pb&j sandwich I could have had from the canteen in the village.

Another place that may have added a vegan option since our trip is Degnan’s Kitchen which according to tripadvisor sometimes has a vegan sausage breakfast sandwich, a sandwich option for lunch and prepackaged hummus and pretzels.
