Cafe Zupas is a fast casual restaurant with lots of fresh ingredients. If you've been wondering about the Zupas vegan options, then this post will guide you through them.
Zupas serves salads, soup, sandwiches, bowls, desserts, and drinks.
I started eating at Zupas when I moved to Utah and have loved it ever since. I had to switch up my order when I went from vegetarian to vegan though.

I used to love getting their Ultimate Grilled Cheese, but it's not suitable for vegans. Maybe one day they'll have a vegan cheese.
These are the vegan options they have on their menu:
Chickpea and Vegetable Soup
This is the only vegan soup on the menu. It has chickpeas, yellow onion, celery, leeks, tomato, and broccolini. They used to have a different vegan soup, but I love how this one has chickpeas in it unlike the first one.
Nuts About Berries Salad (modified)
You'll need to order this salad without the cinnamon almonds because they contain butter.
When you order it like this your salad with have house-chopped mixed greens, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and poppy seed dressing. You could ask for cashews instead of the cinnamon almonds.
Mangoberry Salad (modified)
Order this with no cinnamon almonds and switch the dressing to the poppy seed dressing instead of the mango yogurt dressing.
It will then come with house-chopped mixed greens, blueberries, strawberries, and mangos. You can order this with cashews in place of the cinnamon almonds.
