As you may know, I have been roadtripping alongside the West-Coast of America, which was an Instagram heaven for my feed. Here are my 15 favorite hotspots of the trip that will instantly beautify your Instagram feed and boost your engagement while enjoying the delicious coffee and food :D

Keep an eye on the posts, as there will also be a food guide with my yummiest #foodporn moments on the blog soon ;) Oh, and yes, I gained 0,5kg during our 3 weeks trip :O

San Francisco

— 1. Jane —


Love the interior of Jane on Fillmore. This is a delicious breakfast and lunch place, located in a nice street with boutiques.
I ordered the ‘Dragon bowl’ (love the pink of the dragon fruit), avocado toast, croissant and Coffee, but the whole menu looks really yummy!

— 2. MR Holmes Bakery —


For cookies, coffee and this photogenic ‘I got baked in San Francisco’ light you must go to MR Holmes. It’s a small bakery.
Tip: go early, because the best cookies get sold out fast!

— 3. Sightglass Coffee —



For serious quality coffees you go to Sightglass, where the experts can tell you everything about the coffees. They have several locations in San Francisco. It’s the one at 20th street that has the “Coffee tiles” for the perfect #fromwhereistand pic!

 Los Angeles

— 4. Alfred Coffee —


For coffee in a corn you go to Alfred Coffee, but also for other coffees you come to this cosy place, whether you are meeting up with someone or work behind your laptop.

— 5. Alfred tea room —


As I was having a coffee at Afred’s around the corner, they told us to get a free ice tea at their new location. The promotions help, because I wouldn’t have seen this place otherwise. The tiles, the menu, the pink and the neon lights will do your Instagram photos a favor.

— 7. Beverly Hills Hotel —


This iconic hotel is worth your visit. I had lunch in their cabana cafe, which is outside at the pool (can’t take pictures of the pool due to privacy unfortunately). Every corner of this hotel is Instagram-worthy and you might bump into a celeb while sitting here.

— 8. Republique —


We tried to go here 2 times before we finally got in. Tip: avoid coming here in the weekends, because the qeue can be over an hour!
We went back on a Monday and we could walk in without a waiting line. The food is exquisite. I ordered the Chia seed pudding for breakfast and some yummy pastries. I lost the footage on my phone, but the floor here is pretty Instagrammable!

— 9. Pearls —


I was shopping in my favorite LA area Fairfax when I got quite thirsty, so we accidentally came across this place. I ordered the peach pearl tea, but I saw others ordering cool multicolor teas which will look fab on your Instagram with their wall!

They roast their own coffee and the garden is really cute to hang out for a bit, together with a yoga studio next to it.
