We've all done it before — you or a friend go to a restaurant or cafe that you've seen all over Instagram just to take that perfect "Insta-worthy" picture to prove that you are indeed hip and in the foodie world. At times, you may even go to these places more for the sake of the theme of your feed than for the food itself.
Austin, Texas, is no exception to aesthetically pleasing eats. With the abundance of brunch spots, tacos, and even dedicated Austin-based food Instagram accounts, you'll be sure to find a place that satisfies not only your stomach, but your eyes and Instagram followers as well.
Don't get me wrong – all the places listed below have bomb food. But if you didn't rearrange the layout of your table, pose in front of a wall, or put a bunch of #foodie hashtags on your Instagram picture – did you even go?
If you live in Austin or have friends who do, you've most likely seen this wall and neon sign before. Irene's is known for its amazing happy hour deals and mouth-watering toasts, but this wall is what makes the food (and your feed) well worth the visit.
The decor here screams "take a picture of me" — with hanging lightbulbs, wooden swings, and a mural with Beyoncé and Frida Kahlo, the amount of new Instagram pictures here are endless. Don't forget to try their matcha latte and homemade PopTarts (be sure to take that bird's eye view shot).
Juice spots have taken the world by storm, and Juice Society in Austin is no exception. Though there may be controversy behind the health benefits of juice cleanses, no one can deny how the pops of green, orange, and red juices make your feed look. Hold up your juice against the white walls and potted plants and you'll be sure to impress all of your Instagram followers.
Regular scoops of ice cream aren't going to cut it for your feed. Holla Mode has changed the ice cream game in Austin, using a Thai style method of pouring liquid ingredients onto a steel surface to create rolled masterpieces. Top it with toasted marshmallows, whipped cream, and fruit for the perfect square picture.
How could you not take a picture of the quote of the century? Bribery Bakery, located in both Mueller and Wells Branch, is known for their cinnamon rolls, quiches, and large selection of cookies. Get ready to embrace your inner girl with all of the pink interior, lights, and boxes at this Insta-worthy bakery.
