Because sometimes you want to have your coffee…and take a picture of it too. An Instagrammers guide to the best cafes in NYC.


Round marble tables, picturesque Australian cortados, tortoise shell spoons. Need I say more? Happy Bones is a blogger favorite, which is why you need to come early if you want to ensure a table (there are only three after all)


A contemporary chic diner on the border of SoHo and Chinatown, this new spot has all the ingredients to get a great picture. Minus the crowds.


Many people don’t know that this cocktail and oyster bar serves coffee and bites in the morning as well. Leather boots and rustic details make this spot one of my favorites in the Lower East Side.


While the neighborhood may be a bit random, it’s worth the trip to Murray Hill for Café La Cerra. From the monochrome tile floors to the marble countertop to the unreal acai bowls, it’s hard not to get a great shot at this midtown gem.


Come for the food, stay for the photo. Bluestone Lane doesn’t have wifi, so it feels more like a café-style restaurant than a coffee shop. But this popular Aussie café serves some of the best coffee in the city. And the healthy brunch bites are just as photogenic as they are delicious.


Tucked away on a quiet street in the Lower East Side, Café Henrie serves healthy food in a colorful retro space. Think pastel pink tables, foam green details, and vibrant grain bowls.


Arguably one of the best patio spaces in NYC, come to Laduree Soho on a sunny day to snack on macaroons and sip tea under twinkling lights. From the décor to the food, everything is very classicly French and photogenic.


The only reason I’ll go to Brooklyn is for Butler. (JK, and maybe for Pizza too). This fairly new café in East Williamsburg is essentially begging to be photographed. Dark leather booths and Michel starred pastry chef Ryan Butler make for a win here.

    cute post. Love your coffee posts on IG

  • Reply Stylehue March 1, 2017 at 5:36 PM

    Some really cool coffee shops to take pictures. I totally agree. Since I started Instagram, the places I have coffee kinda need to look good in pictures.
    Wish we had some more places like this in Vancouver.
    At least we have a handful that works :)
