Apr 09, 2020 ByClaire Miles

With so many trendy cafes nowadays, it’s hard to know where to go, and hard for coffee shops to be successful as well.  Most average coffee drinkers can’t really tell the difference between coffee beans, leaving the deciding factor of where to sit for a coffee in the vibes of the cafe and it’s Instagrammability level. And, let’s be honest, most matcha rainbow unicorn lattes just aren’t cutting it anymore. Influencers everywhere are looking for the next big spot that will get them the likes they want. But also, what’s so wrong with wanting to drink coffee in a super cute, super cool spot? Whether you’re an Instagram Influencer or just your average Joe looking for a cup of Joe, we’ve got you covered. Here are the most Instagram-worthy cafes in major cities in America.

The super trendy Alfred Cafe has six branches in Los Angeles, all of which have stunning green accents and black and white tile-work. Their But first, coffee mantra screams Instagram me. Just their bio makes us want to hop on a flight to LA and check it out. “Since opening on Melrose Place in 2013, Alfred has made waves with its sleek decors, killer customer service, and innovative coffee and tea drinks.”

Boxcar Coffee Roasters, Boulder and Denver, CO

This Rocky Mountain coffee shop brews coffee in the most traditional cowboy way possible using a 1929 roaster.  The gram will not be disappointed. According to the states own website, Boxcar Coffee Roasters has been around since 2010 in Boulder, Colorado by Vajra and Cara Rich. Together with roaster Janos Porps and their team of baristas and roastery staff, they’ve been busy brewing the best cups of coffee in the state.

Coffee for Sasquatch, Los Angeles, CA

Coffee for Sasquatch will bring you back to life with its bright white space and caffeine options. You can expect a cup of coffee individually crafted on the spot made with ritual beans and (to keep things fun and interesting) each sasquatch barista rotates the menu. Their website describes themselves as, “A sanctuary away from the LA hustle where you can be yourself and enjoy premium coffee and bites.” Yes, please!

Black Eye, Denver, CO

The old-school neighborhood coffee shop hosts vintage furniture, brick walls, and a garage door. You won’t want to miss a picture here. But really, what could we say that the guys at Black Eye already haven’t? “From a speakeasy and less-than-legal activities to an open-air coffeehouse, Black Eye Coffee is a place steeped in history where every detail stirs the imagination and stories flow freely from every corner. Get ready to be lost in conversation while enjoying a delicious cup of handcrafted coffee.” Absolute perfection.

Cha Cha Matcha, New York, NY

Cha Cha Matcha does in fact have coffee, but the real specialty in their matcha lattes, available in a pretty pink or green oasis variety. So why should you drink matcha? Well, the Cha Cha Matcha team claims that matcha is a super-power powder that will clear your mind and calm your soul. It contains lots of caffeine and way more antioxidants than regular green tea. It’s also been a staple of Japanese culture for over 1,000 years so you know it isn’t just another trend. Matcha is here to stay!
