My Favorite Insta-Worthy Cafe’s In LA

One of my favorite parts about blogging is exploring all my city has to offer and sharing it with you guys! Ever since I started blogging, I’ve become quite the pro with scouting out the most photogenic spots in LA..from cafes, restaurants, alleys, houses, walls..you name it. Since so many of you love my posts about LA, I thought I’d share my favorite Insta-worthy cafe’s for you guys! So whether you blog or just like to keep your Instagram game strong, here’s my guide to the most Instagram-worthy cafe’s in LA!

Alfred Tea

If you haven’t been to Alfred’s Tea yet, then you aren’t doing LA right! I’m sure your feeds have been flooded with their pink walls and too pretty to drink boba’s…but I can never get enough of this spot! The ambiance here is everything..from their bright pink walls, funny tagline’s, decor and too cute to throw out cups. I always go back and forth between the matcha and rose tea boba..so insanely good and their matcha croissant is heaven!! This tea shop is tucked away on a small palm-tree lined street in Melrose Place, so after getting some shots here you can stop into the high-end boutiques and snap another shot outside Isabel Marant aka the succulent garden that you’ll see right outside the store!

Address: 705 N Alfred St, Los Angeles, CA 90069

Dinosaur Coffee

Dinosaur Coffee

I discovered Dinosaur Coffee , along with the best strawberry croissant I’ve had in my life on my Los Feliz City Tour a couple weeks ago! This sleek-modern space features dinosaur-themed decor and their famous ‘things will be fine’ tagline which you can see from my photo! Their minimalist white and wooden interior is the perfect backdrop to any Instagram photo. Oh and the natural lighting in this place? Seriously a game changer!!

Address: 4334 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029


insta-worthy cafes in los angeles

Lately I’ve been on an acai bowl kick and Rawberri is the spot for the best acai bowls in the city. They are located in the heart of West Hollywood, right on Santa Monica Blvd. This cafe specializing in super fruit, plant-based goodies, and acai bowls is no doubt pleasing to the eye with their banana-leaf wallpaper, swinging wooden chairs, and light-up taglines like ‘good vibes only’. As soon as you walk in, it almost feels like you’re in a mini jungle and there’s so many photo opps..it gets overwhelming lol.  You won’t be able to restrain yourself from taking an IG foodie picture here..this spot was made for that ;) They also have a special treat all the way from Australia! Their famous ‘Cocowhip’ which is a coconut-water based soft serve..so delicious!!

Address:  8582 California Route 2, West Hollywood, CA 90069

Carrera Cafe

Carrera Cafe Insta-worthy

Cafe Carrera is as Instagrammable as it gets! I’m sure some of you may remember seeing the famous pink lips mural! So many cute spots to shoot here..inside and outside the cafe. With their changing murals, cute coffee designs, marble counters and imported Moroccan tiles..this has become one of LA’s go-to spots. And for those of you who are really into coffee art, Cafe Carrera brought it to the next level with personalized lattes. You can choose any image you want just by downloading the ‘coffee riples’ app and sending your desired image to Carrera Cafe…I’ve seen everything from quotes to selfies! Aside from their amazing coffee, they recently introduced a new menu item..buttermilk Belgian waffle bars..YES and yes!!!

Address: 8251 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046


Sweet Rose Creamery

Sweet Rose Creamery Santa Monica

As I’m sure you guys know by now, I love trying out new ice cream shops around the city! One of my all-time favorites is Sweet Rose Creamery which we recently visited on our city tour of Santa Monca (click here if you missed it!). There were so many cute things I loved about this shop like the chalkboard menu, walls covered in drawings and the cutest blue bench outside.

Address: 826 Pico Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA 90405

    Ohhh wow, this post was definitely needed!! I need to go back to LA immediately!! I wish I knew about some of these place before I went! I believe my favourite out of the list is Carrera Cafe, it looks like a dreamland, I love it! The place where I got my (first) Acai bowl was The Poké Shack on South Beverly Drive! Great post Jessi and thanks for sharing x

    Great list Jessi! Love all these spots, especially Alfred’s Tea. I’d have to add The Ivy to the list as it’s my home away from home. I go there so much, I notice immediately when they change the furniture. :)
