Anyone who’s serious about their “gram” game knows that half the reason to drink coffee or visit an establishment that brews it is to get killer, double tap inducing pics. Here are our five photogenic faves for epic Instagram captures.
Whimsical wallpaper, a mix of modern and vintage decor, and luminous natural light make this locale a grammer’s dream. The Henry Coffee Bar XV serves up a variety of caffeinated beverages alongside healthy smoothies and juices for those not jonesing for a buzz. Ask the barista for a signature drink like ‘The Wildflower’ with vanilla, espresso, steamed milk and a splash of chai and then shoot away.
La Grande Orange
This Arcadia neighborhood favorite boasts a bright namesake mural at the entry, which makes for perfect Insta background material that will ensure max likes.

Located on Central Avenue, Lux is a hipster’s paradise. The open concept space is decorated with a mish-mosh of mid-century modern furniture while food is served up on dishware that looks like it came straight out of grandma’s cupboard. Of course the simple brick exteriors are perfect for a minimalists feed. If you’re looking to nosh on something with your latte, the banana bread is bomb and the mac and cheese irresistible.
BONUS: Ruze Cake House
While Ruze doesn’t technically serve coffee, they do offer beverages from local darling Teaspressa, coined as ‘tea made like coffee’. The recently opened Scottsdale store seems like it was literally made just for Instagram with crisp white walls, clean marble counter tops, rose gold accents, fresh florals, and an adorable “Stop & Taste the Roses” light up wall sign. Seriously, the place is stunning from head-to-toe…we dare you to find anything unsightly anywhere. Oh, and did we mention the to-die-for cupcakes, cookies and macaroons. Let’s just say if you don’t post something from here, are you even a real Instagrammer?
