15 Places You Must Visit To Be A Master Cafe Instagrammer

by Junru Tan 1,863 views0

In this tech-savvy era, social media has become part of our daily life. From snapping a photo of food to posting an update, everything is done via a mobile phone. The biggest social media platform right now is Instagram and sharing a little aspect of life online is the new normal. Posting pictures of food are no longer as simple as ‘snap and post’, instead, tedious planning and arrangement are required to get the best shot.

When it comes to Instagram-worthy cafes, there are more to just nice looking food. In my opinion, for a cafe to be Instagrammable, the ambience, decorations and furniture have to be on point–both the interior and exterior.

Here are 15 different cafes in Singapore so beautiful that will make you stand out in the world of Instagram (#sgcafe).

 

1. BiBing

BiBing is probably the most interesting-looking bingsu cafe I have been to. While most bingsu cafes take on a clean, neat and simple decor, BiBing chose a forest concept, mimicking the spring and autumn season beautifully.

Boufe Boutique Cafe is one of the most beautiful looking cafes in Singapore. Doused in so much white, it’s literally a paradise for a minimalist. The place has a modern and chic vibe, and most people don’t leave without a picture taken. Taking a photo of (or with) their signature swing at the entrance of the cafe is a must, as well as the alfresco dining area, where the streams of flowers hang across the pillars, making it dreamlike.

3. Brunches Cafe

Hidden among rows of cafes along Rangoon Road, Brunches incorporated a vintage and rustic theme. Using birdhouses as decor pieces and lighting, it adds on to the whimsical vibes. The true gem of attraction is the vintage Mini Cooper, which was converted to a 4-seater sofa set and the boot was used as a condiments station. Since it works on a first-come-first-serve basis, be sure to reach early to chope the seat.

Monochrome Fusion Bistro’s belief of ‘less is more’ is reflected in the minimalist, black and white decor. The bistro offers an alternative dining experience of incorporating East and West cuisines, as well as having the dishes served in the duo-tone theme. The monochromatic vibes are definitely attractive enough to capture the space and food.

Even though Paddy Hills is a little trickier to get to, the place is worth the trip for its space and food. Very few cafes chose doodles as the main aspect of their decor, but Paddy Hills did and has done a fantastic job with the artistic concept. Many flocked to the cafe just for that one Instagrammable shot with the huge exterior walls full of drawings.

Pretty obvious that I have a thing with doodles. I love drawing and anything related to art catches my attention because they inspire me. Not only are these places beautiful, but also the amazing food and desserts. Take time this week and visit one of the places for a meal, afternoon tea, or simply chill at the bar. Remember to capture lots of images of the place and post onto to your Instagram!
