We’ve found the five best cafes that would be perfect for your Insta shots!
If you haven’t already eaten, I must first warn you. Scrolling through the Instagram accounts for each of these cafés will have your tummy rumbling for some beautifully created and ultra-tasty breakfast foods! Proceed at your own discretion.
Sons of Mischief: Highett, Melbourne
A café with a name like that just begs to be seen! Sons of Mischief is a funky little brunch café in a quiet suburb south-east of Melbourne. They serve a delectable range of Middle Eastern inspired meals packed with rich culture and heritage. Their extensive menu can be found on their website, and don’t forget to skim through the bottomless brunch options (because who doesn’t love a bottomless brunch?!).
For your perfect selfie spot, you can’t miss their cheeky selection of LED neon signs, which make the perfect backdrop for your shot! If you’re more of a foodie, their dishes look so good you won’t be able to help yourself from taking a pic! https://www.sonsofmischief.com.au/
Kettle Black Café: South Melbourne
This café and restaurant hybrid is the perfect place for your sophisticated sit-down brunch. You can’t miss the venue, it’s a gorgeous heritage style 1880’s terrace house nestled south of the busy Melbourne city. It is the perfect blend between old and new. Large windows bring warmth to the space, lighting up soft oak timbers and statement green furniture.
There isn’t one spot inside this place that won’t make for the perfect photo opportunity. Our pick for your Insta shot would definitely be in front of the large Victorian-style windows that overlook the front patio!
Higher Ground: Melbourne CBD
This little gem can be found in one of the nooks and crannies of Melbourne’s CBD, and inside awaits a joyous ride of unexpected amazement. On the outside, it looks like a snobbishly overpriced modern café disguised in a spacious industrial warehouse, is actually well worth its hype. Boasting nearly 60K followers on Instagram, you’ll be lured in by the fancy photos of food from their extensive menus.
Higher ground was once an old power station, and is full of chic old-fashioned charm. Pick a quiet spot beside the huge arched windows and take your photo in front of any gorgeous brick wall for your perfect Insta shot! https://darlinggroup.com.au/venues/higherground/
Aqua S – Seal Salt Soft Serve: Melbourne CBD
Okay, okay, we know this one isn’t technically a café, but it’s well worth the visit! There is no limit to what these guys can do when it comes to ice cream creation, and their stores are beautifully decorated to make you feel like you’re on top of the world!
Their Melbourne store is your perfect opportunity for an Insta shot while enjoying a deliciously decked out ice cream! A gorgeous multicoloured neon sign adorns a heavenly painted wall that resembles light fluffy clouds.
Whether it’s a blisteringly hot summers day, or a cold and rainy one, there’s always a good excuse for ice cream! https://www.facebook.com/aquasaustralia
Bentwood: Fitzroy, Melbourne
Warm autumnal hues and soft furnishings fill this vast brick building that sits within the lively suburb of Fitzroy, just outside the Melbourne CBD.
The venue is bursting just with history! Bentwood was once a furniture store, selling classic European furniture by designer and cabinet-maker Michael Thonet. Their chairs, the ‘bentwood chair’, are a homage to the previous occupant, and are wildly popular around the globe.
Any wall within the venue would make the perfect background for your Insta selfie, with its rich burgundy interior and timber finishes. Imagine yourself rugged up in layers of clothing on a rainy Melbourne day, sipping a nice warm coffee, what could be better. https://www.bentwoodfitzroy.com.au/
