Where to Find Rainbow Food in Westchester for Pride Month

These decadent, sweet, and savory creations are delicious all year long, but doubly so when we’re celebrating LGBTQ+ pride.

It’s no secret we love food, and visual appeal is often the first sense to bask in our favorite indulgences. It’s no wonder, then, that the vibrancy of Pride Month lifts not just our spirits but our appetites with delectable and colorful creations. Delight your taste buds with these festive rainbow dishes in Westchester.

Aqui Es Santa Fe’s Color Wave Empanadas

32 Broad St, Port Chester; 914.305.1060

We always love a tasty empanada, but these bite-sized “color wave” iterations are as Instagrammable as they are delicious. Made with natural colorings like beet root extract, spinach concentrate, and cuttlefish/squid inks, these babies come in both traditional and inventive flavors like beef, chicken, cheese, cheese and guava, ham and pineapple, blueberry goat cheese, and more. Get a whole bunch for $3.25 each (minimum order of three) or a dozen for $35.

Beascakes’ Rainbow Mini-Donuts

575 Main St, Armonk; 914.273.3612

These adorable mini-donuts (not donut holes; those are separate) come filled or dipped in colorful icing and are eminently poppable, making them a perfect party purchase. If you want to grab a bunch for yourself though, we’re not going to judge. Just be sure to call in your order ahead of time. The mini-donuts are $1.50 each. (Pro-tip: Grab a couple of rainbow smiley face sugar cookies while you’re at it; prices range from $3.25 for sprinkled cookies, $5 for cookies decorated in store, and $6 for custom-made cookies.)
