Concha (Spanish, 'shell'), plural conchas, is a traditional Mexican sweet bread roll (pan dulce). Conchas get their name from their round shape and their striped, seashell-like appearance. A concha consists of two parts, a sweetened bread roll, and a crunchy topping (composed of flour, butter, and sugar).[1] Conchas are commonly found throughout Mexico (and its diaspora) in panaderias.

In recent years, conchas have gained visbility outside of Mexico. A "concha bun burger" won the James Beard Foundation's Blended Burger Project in 2016.[2]
