There is no shortage of cafes in NYC. So how does one pick? If you’re going with the gram in mind, then you’ll absolutely love this list of Instagramable, cute cafes all organized by color! What’s YOUR favorite color? Will one of these work best for your IG aesthetic? Let me know which place you’re most excited to check out!
1. If your favorite color is rainbow (as my 6 year old daughter says), then you will go gaga over the Flour Shop which is pretty much made for the rainbow chaser. Rainbow sprinkles, rainbow cake, rainbow wall, rainbow floor… can’t get enough? Go here and it will be your new happy place. Their candy-filled cakes are pretty darn awesome too. Check their gram cuz they oftentimes have special, seasonal decor like the heart decals or balloons arches shown here!

Fans of Tiffany blue or seafoam green will get a real caffeine kick out of this adorable jewel of a find. Located in Bryant Park, get a shot of espresso and a shot for the gram. You may not want to stay long though because there are no outlets to recharge with and no wifi to post!

6. By Chloe – Pictured here is the South Street Seaport (downtown location) but they have others. No one has made plant-based, vegan food look so good. And after eating so healthy, you can stop next door at their bakery and treat yourself to something unhealthy! How convenient!

8. While We Were Young This petite, girly restaurant is so Instagramable that it draws crowds and waits for durations of 30min- 1hour sometimes. The most coveted seats are those plush blush banquettes pictured here but you must arrive before opening to secure those.
Avocado toast is beautifully presented and Yelp reviewers also love the chicken and waffles, truffle fries and burger!
