One of the Pantone colors of the year is rose quartz, in layman’s terms, pink. This on-trend color is currently taking over the runways, streets, Instagram, and even our dining tables.

If you’ve just joined the bandwagon or have always loved pink, check out these insta-worthy spots to satisfy your obsession.

From the wait staff’s pink aprons and pink menus,Cafe Henrie will make you feel like you’ve just stepped into a Wes Anderson film.

The dragon bowls and avocado toasts are just as vibrant in color and flavor. But don’t be fooled by the healthy meals, a side of their sweet and savory maple bacon is a must-order.

If you’re not yet sold, this video of super model, Taylor Hill, dancing around the adorable cafe should do the trick.

The brainchild of their collaboration with beauty company, Glossier, are adorable ice cream push pops in rose, cherry, and mint flavors that match the company’s lip balms. Perfect for those guilty of licking their gloss off their lips.

Buff Monster is a street artist who believes that “pink is a symbol of confidence, individuality and happiness.” His murals are located right outside Morgenstern’s so we suggest grabbing your ice cream treats and snapping an insta-worthy shot in front of one of his pink creations.

Unfortunately, picnicking in the garden is forbidden. As an alternative, grab some tea and snacks in the garden’s designated cafe and bask in all the beautiful flowers surrounding you.

We don’t recommend picking and eating the flowers in the garden but check out this list of edible flowers with amazing health benefits.

5. Bellocq Tea Atelier

This classic parisian bakery located in Soho has been an all-time favorite for macaron connoisseurs. If you’re unable to visit Laduree check out this macaron recipe modeled after Laduree’s dark chocolate macaron.

This new matcha shop is the most current craze taking over our Instagram feeds. A day couldn’t pass by without a photo of their matcha lattes with the shop’s pink and green interior as the backdrop.

Their coconut matcha latte is our personal favorite but we also suggest ordering a matcha dough’ssant along with your drink.
