Where to Find Vegan Conchas in Los Angeles

Get your vegan concha fix at these spots in LA! A concha is a traditional Mexican pan dulce or “sweet bread roll” with a crunchy topping stamped on to create a shell-like design. They are a nostalgic and fundamental part of Mexican culture that taste great solo, dipped in coffee, or as a dessert with your favorite toppings––like whipped cream and berries! Traditionally, conchas include butter and eggs, so they can be tough to find vegan, but leave it to us to scout out some places that offer plant-based renditions of these treats.
