La Colombe 

The lines at this cafe are a telltale sign that this coffee chain is one of the best in the city. With multiple locations scattered across Manhattan, it should be easy to snap a picture of their decadent creations. Make sure to order your coffee “for here” to have it served in an intricate porcelain mug.

Greecologies

Although this SoHo favorite is known for their authentic (and delicious) Greek yogurt, the eatery does offer delicious matcha shots and cappuccinos. Grab your beverage and capture its beauty on the Greek column near the window for instant Instagram beauty.

The Elk

Tucked into the West Village, this serene and inviting space is perfect for meeting just about anyone. Their food is nothing short of scrumptious, and there are plenty of dedicated “no laptop” tables (which is awesome, when you think about it).

Two Hands

A popular brunch spot, Two Hands has some of the best lattes around. And, although their food and coffee is Instagram-worthy in itself, the large floating clouds, modern artwork and exposed light bulbs make this cafe’s interior the focus of your photograph.

Milk and Roses

Technically a bistro, this eatery made our list of most Instagramable cafes in NYC thanks to its exquisite decor. Part library, part brunch spot, Milk and Roses has the perfect amount of destruction mixed with chic to make all our photo dreams come true. And yes, their coffee is delicious.

Happy Bones

This minimalist cafe brings a whole new meaning to white on white color palettes. The white brick ties in beautifully with the pale marble tables — making for a perfect coffee photo opportunity.

Sweatshop

Perhaps one of the best coffee shops in Brooklyn, this hidden gem has everything an interior designer dreams of in a cafe. Not only does this spot have a killer cappuccino, but their use of a white on white color palette combined with bold shelving and decorative tables makes this a perfect spot to photograph.

Stumptown Coffee Roasters

Yes, Stumptown Coffee is delicious. But, that is nothing in comparison to their utterly breathtaking 8th Street cafe. The ceiling-high wooden cabinets and dark green marble counters have us dying to Instagram them every time we walk by.

Toby’s Estate 

With rich coffee and free wifi, this Brooklyn cafe is popular with neighborhood locals. But, it’s not just their stunning wooden tables that have us photographing Toby’s Estate, it’s also an incredible wall of shelves — perfect for a shelfie.
