10 Places to Find Vegan Croissants in Los Angeles

What’s flaky, layered, and buttered all over? Croissants! These crescent-shaped pastries are native to Austrian and French cuisine, but we’ve found a few spots in LA that have them––in vegan form! Drop by these places to kick off your day with a remarkable roll!

Little Pine 

Silver Lake

If you’re a croissant connoisseur, you have probably heard a thing or two about the confections at Little Pine. From their regular croissant with jam and butter to their almond or chocolate croissants, no brunch here is complete without one (or all) of them!

Green Table Cafe

Mid-City

The owners of this spot are certified holistic nutritionists and live their motto of “love what you do, do it with love,” by using 100% organic and vegan ingredients. They offer a mindblowing amount of intricate pastries and desserts, including fruit tarts, raw pies, crostatas, and tiramisu. To add to the pastry case, they’ve got croissants! You can order their buttery vegan croissant as is or ask for it filled with chocolate. Pair it with their latte art, and you’ve got a deliciously photogenic breakfast!

New Deli

Venice

If you’re looking for a sweet snack before hitting Venice beach, stop by this plant-based deli for their croissants! They sell plain, almond, and chocolate croissants from Baked LA, a vegan wholesale bakery based in La-La Land! They offer some other delectable meals and snacks, so grab some lunch for a picnic on the beach!

The Ridiculous Baking Co.

Pura Vita

West Hollywood

Stop by Pura Vita to try the croissant’s Italian cousin, the cornetto! From the brunch menu, their Queen Cornetto contains tofu egg, shiitake bacon, cashew mozzarella, avocado, heirloom tomato, and roasted garlic aioli, all sandwiched between an Italian cornetto. It rules!

Doomies Home Cookin’

Hollywood & City Terrace

While Doomie’s is most popularly known for their crazy good comfort entrees and sides, they also have a plethora of desserts and pastries! If you’re digging something sweet, grab their chocolate croissant, or for something on the savory side, try their ham and cheese croissant! These items are available at both Doomie’s in Hollywood as well as NextMex Express, so there’s no excuse for you not to have one!

Mother’s Market & Kitchen

Multiple locations

This vegan-friendly market and cafe has plenty of great eats, grocery finds, and pastry items! If you’re looking for your croissant fill, try out their 3 Spelt Blackberry Vegan Croissant or Chocolate Vegan Croissant. Warning: you might get stuck here for hours wandering the aisles in fascination with all their plant-based products!

The Black Bean

Fountain Valley

Say goodbye to chicken and waffles, and hello to chicken and croissants––all vegan, of course! This spot’s Soul Saver is a fried ‘chicken’ patty in a croissant with their house-made spicy maple ‘honey’ syrup. You can even add bacon to it for an extra crunch! If you’re not ready for all of the glory of this item, they also sell their croissants individually!

Just What I Kneaded

Elysian Park

Conchas, cinnamon rolls, and croissants––oh my! Justine Hernandez is a baking mastermind that has popped up all over LA with her goodies. She is moving on up to a brick and mortar set to open at the end of the summer. Just What I Kneaded will meet your croissant needs with your choice of a classic or chocolate croissant, and she even said she might offer one dipped in something fun! We’ve never wanted the summer to go by faster!
