*As is always the case at all non-exclusively vegan restaurants, there is always the chance of cross-contamination. I will leave this to your discretion as to whether this is something you are comfortable with or not.
*Also, some items may contain sugar – the source of the sugar has not been verified as to whether it has been processed with bone char or not. I will leave that to your discretion as to whether this is something you are comfortable with or not.

Another great vegan caffeinated option at Cheesecake Factory is a cold brew coffee. The Cheesecake Factory does not currently have dairy-free milk available – but to be honest a cold brew coffee doesn’t need any milk anyway.
