Where to Find Vegan Conchas in Los Angeles

Get your vegan pan dulce on 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. The confections 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! Conchas are traditionally made with butter and eggs, but there are quite a few panaderias and pop-ups that offer plant-based renditions! Here’s where to find vegan conchas in Los Angeles.

Soy Concha Bakery

Santa Ana

Soy Concha Bakery dominates the pan dulce playing field with conchas of all categories. They’ve got chocolate and vanilla, but the standout is their Como La Flor, a Selena-inspired bright purple concha dusted in edible glitter. Check out their other traditional eats like borregos, gansitos, elotes, galletas, and puerquitos—we could continue to list their goodies, but you’ll have to check them out for yourself!
