If you guys follow me on Instagram or Youtube, you will have seen that Sabrina and I visited sunny Los Angeles a few weeks ago. While the purpose of the trip was to attend the Create & Cultivate conference, our second priority was to run around like madwomen searching for the most Instagrammable spots in LA - and we definitely were not disappointed. Here are some of my favourite, most Instagram worthy places in LA to mark down on your map for your next trip to Los Angeles.
Alfred's Tea Room
If you're someone who loves the colour pink as much as Sabrina and I, consider Alfred's Tea Room your mothership. This quaint, beautifully decorated little tea shop boast's an extensive tea menu, all served in Instagram-worthy cups. We visited this place multiple times and both agreed that, while the tea-based drinks are good, it's their pastries that really stand out.
The Beverly Hills Hotel
I knew from before we even landed in LA that I wanted to have brunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel Cabana Club, and it did not disappoint. The entire hotel is one big Instagrammable moment and, except for the pool area, you're able to take photos wherever you want. The brunch itself was delicious and while price-wise it's definitely a YOLO meal, in my mind it was well worth it for the experience.
Mansur Gavriel Store
The newly opened Mansur Gavriel store on Melrose is almost too beautiful for words. While the store itself is beautiful, with an in-house café with indoor seating, I just loved the flower-lined courtyard outside.
Another gem on Melrose, Sorella Boutique is where you will find the Instagram-famous Girls Tour wall. Grab your girls, grab a tripod (or a fellow tourist who also wants a photo) and grab this photo.
Carrera CafeAnother Insta-famous café on Melrose, Carrera Cafe is where you will find your quirky lattes with fun art like Drake and a crying Kim K. The whole shop was definitely created with Instagram photos in mind, from the lattes to the floor tiles to the beautiful mural right outside.
If minimal is more your vibe, The Assembly is a gorgeous café that will be right up your alley. Sabrina and I enjoyed strong americanos and some gourmet doughnuts in this light-filled space.
Sprinkles Beverly Hills
If you can walk by an all-pink cupcake vending machine in Beverly Hills and not take a photo, you're a stronger person than I am.
Alfred Coffee Beverly Hills
There are a few Alfred Coffees around LA and while all of the locations are ridiculously cute (and serve ridiculously good coffee) my favourite location is the one in Beverly Hills. A pink hearted mural on the side of the café? Yes please.
Venice Beach is one of my favourite, quirky places in LA. You'll find plenty of Instagram-worthy photo opportunities, from the giant Venice sign to bike riding along the boardwalk. For a plethora of Instagram-worthy spots away from the chaotic beach, Abbot Kinney is the street you need to hit. So many beautiful shops and restaurants including The Butcher's Daughter, a beautiful plant-based restaurant and café.
There are so many beautiful shops and cafés in LA that would make your Instagram feed proud, but these ones are definitely my favourite and the ones that I will be repeating when I head back to sunny Los Angeles in September.
