Chocolatier • Cafe • Vegan Friendly
Founded in 2003 by a passionate vegan chef, Lagusta's Luscious artisanal chocolates combine a deep commitment to social justice, environmentalism and animal rights with the love of bold flavor of a true foodie and the obsessive commitment to artisan techniques of a chocolatier. They work closely with small farmers and producers in the beloved town of New Paltz, New York and across the country to source everything from their Maui vanilla beans (from a tiny two-acre vanilla farm) to the candy-striped beets (our beet-coriander truffle will win you over, we promise!) grown by Farmer Jessica less than a mile away.
Beware: you're going to want to buy everything.
Votes are in, this is the best artisanal chocolate around...let alone, it's all 100% vegan. Trick your carnivore friends!
Stop by the Lagusta's Luscious Commissary down the road for a more hearty dish. Or, if you're in NYC make sure to check out their shop Confectionery.
