Is there anything better than hi-res foodtography that makes you wish reaching into the photo and taking a bite Willy Wonka-style was possible? Between foodstagram, blogs, and foodie Snapchats, grub-related social media has basically become an art form.
Here are 15 food photos that look so stellar it makes you want to cry:
15. Gooey Cheese by the Ocean
A picture of grilled cheese capturing the oozing goodness is worth a thousand words and a thousand+ likes.
14. Do You Want to Build a Milkshake?
Rumor has it the hype for these milkshakes at Black Tap in NYC results in a 2+ hour wait in line. Clearing your afternoon schedule has never tasted so good.
13. Haleiwa Matata
12. Sweet Slice O’ Mine
A classic dish, an elegant photo, a very hungry me.
11. Viva La Brunch
A breakfast bowl with all you could ever need – maple bacon, polenta, and parmesan.
10. Twist & Dip
I bet you were wishin’ National Pretzel Day was every day right about now.
9. Chocolate + Peanut Butter = Match Made in Heaven
Kinda wondering what the clean-up situation was for this Reese’s cake to get this photo, kinda want to cry at its beauty.
8. Bagels in the Sky with Dumbo
Is the East Coast the best coast? Judging from this rainbow bagel photo, the answer is yes.
7. Caramel Crazy
I will gladly be fat and very happy with this cinnamon sugar/caramel sauce duo from Black Barn Restaurant.
6. Cheap Dills
Everyone’s favorite chicken & pickles on a buttered bun combo with equally stunning photog skills.
5. Stack of Macs
*Signs up for a macaron making class ASAP.*
4. Too Shellfish to Share
Being broke is slightly less painful if it means eating this lobster roll every weekend.
3. A Melting Spectrum
Summer calls for melting popsicles for a rainbow ombré photo session, duh.
2. Let’s Toast to Avocado
If avocado toast has never made you cry of happiness before, it sure has now.
1. Tart in the A-yer
After seeing this beaut, you’ll never not take a picture of your food in the air.
