5

Updated in 2021! Over several decades, Peet’s Coffee has caffeinated millions of people in major cities across the US. But their menu goes far beyond a simple cup of Joe. Peet’s offers a large assortment of specialty coffees, blended drinks, teas, and freshly baked goods, with a surprising amount of dairy-free and vegan options. They’ve even started a line of oat lattes, with seasonal flavors, and have tested the waters with plant-based food. See what’s currently in store in our quick guide below.

Peet’s Coffee Dairy-Free Menu Guide with Vegan Options

Sadly, Peet’s dairy-free whipped cream was discontinued in 2019. But they are forging ahead with dairy-free milk beverage options, seasonal dairy-free drinks, and even plant-based menu items. The following items are also vegan, unless otherwise noted.

Menu Coffee & Tea Drinks

  • Americano
  • Coffee (hot or cold brew)
  • Espresso (hot or iced)
  • Golden Spice Cold Brew Oat Latte (seasonal)
  • Horchata Cold Brew Oat Latte (seasonal)
  • Maple Cold Brew Oat Latte (seasonal)
  • Original Cold Brew Oat Latte
  • Teas (hot or iced)
  • Caffe Latte (hot or iced; dairy-free milk)
  • Caffe Mocha (hot or iced; dairy-free milk, no whip)
  • Cappuccino (hot or iced; dairy-free milk)
  • Chai Latte (hot or iced; dairy-free milk)
  • Matcha Green Tea Latte (hot, iced, or blended iced; dairy-free milk, no whip)
  • Maple Latte (hot or iced; dairy-free milk; seasonal)
  • Pumpkin Latte (hot or iced; dairy-free milk; seasonal)
  • Vanilla Latte (hot or iced; dairy-free milk)
  • Hot Chocolate (dairy-free milk, no whip)

Heads Up! According to Peet’s, the vast majority of their hot and cold beverages can be made vegan if you place your order with a dairy-free milk alternative, hold the whip, and avoid non-vegan sauces (see below). The exceptions are the Havana Cappuccinos and Black Ties which cannot be made vegan. They are made with sweetened condensed milk.

Dairy-Free Milk Beverages 

Heads Up! The Barista line is formulated to steam, foam, and pour seamlessly into hot and cold beverages. In the past, Peet’s has also offered Coconut Milk Beverage, but it is no longer a regular.

Syrups for Beverage Orders

Heads Up! Peet’s Coffee uses Monin Syrups, which the company says are all dairy-free, and appear to be made without top allergens.

Sauces for Beverage Orders

  • Chocolate Sauce (for hot cocoa and mochas)
  • Dark Chocolate Sauce
  • Pumpkin Sauce (for seasonal pumpkin spice lattes)

Heads Up! Peet’s caramel and white chocolate sauces do contain dairy.

  1. We don’t have Peets Coffee here but when we travel we are all about going to different coffee shops and we’ve stopped at a few. Vegan whipped cream now makes it a must stop next time we are by one!
