We all love THAT MOMENT. What moment am I referring to? The one that perfectly captures the most instagrammable scenario. A lot of people do it for the sake of instagramming it, but as someone who just particularly appreciates aesthetically pleasing and pretty things, I am always looking for the next most exciting thing to photograph for a little personal keepsake.
There are a ton of cafes nowadays that boast beautiful decor designed for snapping photos, so I figured I’d narrow down to some of my favorites in Orange County. There’s actually so many here so it’s hard to narrow down to just a few! The coffee/tea/cafe culture is such a thing down in the OC so these are some of my favorites that are simply top notch and very “gilded approved”.
Come for the neon sign “Bad Habits,” the super fun “Anti-Bitch Serum” branding on the coffee cups and cookies and the insanely amazing Bliss Balls.
They’ve got frozen lattes and a super minimalistic, straight to the point vibe. Perfect backdrop for taking some great coffee flay lays.
Housemade seasonally-inspired syrups give Neat Coffee the upper hand among a lot of other coffee shops. The decor is artsy and inspiring.
The iced vanilla latte is to die for and Kit’s inventive, beautiful and delectable selection of avocado toasts will cure just about anything from hunger pangs, to a good flat lay craving to hangovers.
A feminine cafe with white and floral accents from the walls to the menu. This spot was made for capturing moments in a very beautiful, bright and dainty way. Known for its amazing selection of teas!
Known for its specialty coffee and tea on tap!
Obsessed with their Masala Chai (Honor’s own blend of Indian spices - seriously, it’s life changing and you can smell its aroma from a mile away!) and their yummy iced matcha latte. The decor is accented with whites, golds, marbles and woods.
