Because who said you had to give up tradition to be vegan?
Because conchas are made with butter and eggs, they are not traditionally vegan. But these panaderias and pop-ups offer plant-based renditions! So, here is where to find vegan conchas in Los Angeles.
Soy Concha Bakery
Formerly known as Vegan by Victoria’s, Soy Concha Bakery is the ultimate stop for vegan conchas in LA! Their pastry case features a plethora of conchas in eye-catching colors and designs. In addition, the plant-based panaderia stocks seasonal items like Halloween conchas and Pan de Muerto.
Toluca Bakery & Cafe
Valley vegans cannot get enough of Toluca Bakery & Cafe’s delicious pan dulce! To begin, grab a few classic conchas with a white, pink, yellow, or brown stamped topping. After that, try the Cochiconchas—a hybrid between a puerquito and concha.

This local pop-up makes some of the most creative vegan conchas in LA! For example, you can order conchas shaped like turtles, pumpkins, and Christmas trees. Sweet n’ Peaceful even offers both a lavender- and an ube-flavored pan dulce with a heart pattern stamped on top.
Melrose & Sherman Oaks
Sugar Taco may be known for its savory dishes like tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, but their sweet items are just as noteworthy!
