Calling all Philly vegans: Two local favorites are joining forces in a new West Philly venture this summer.

The all-women owned and operated Crust Vegan Bakery and it delicious — and shockingly beautiful  — pastries, cakes and other sweets will join longtime South Philly vegan coffee house Grindcore House, Eater reports. The exact address in West Philly is a secret, for now.

Grindcore has been a staple of the vedge community since 2010. And here it's not just about their good coffee; it offers vegan bagels, sandwiches, salads and baked goods.

Actually, Grindcore has been stocking Crust's infamous chocolate chip cookie sandwiches for a minute now. It also has Crust's gluten-free S'mores bars and coffee cake.

And this will be Crust's first physical realization — it's been functioning as a catering business and wholesale provider for 30 local businesses since 2015.

We don't know yet exactly how they'll be working together on this one or what the space will look like.

The two join other brick-and-mortar vegan shops that have announced plans for actualization this summer, like Batter & Crumbs.
