There are a number of places you can go to for a quick coffee on a cold day or a smoothie on a sunny day. But sometimes, we love to see some aesthetics or uniqueness to our drinks and share it on social media (most likely on Instagram!).
But where in Melbourne can you find some of the most Instagram-worthy drinks to add to your feed? Make your friends jealous and up your Instagram game by visiting these five eateries that offer drinks that are just so aesthetic.
Little Rogue, a cafe hidden out in Drewery Lane, offers great blends and a cosy atmosphere.
The cafe is quite small and at peak hours it can become difficult to find a seat. Nonetheless, the fast and friendly staff along with their coffee craftsmanship is definitely captivating and will compensate. If you’re looking for something a little different than the usual coffee, try out their matcha latte.
If you’re a fan of all things matcha, this is a blend that would certainly appeal to you. But even if green tea or matcha flavoured things don’t quite fit your palette, there’s always a variety of coffee blends to try out!
White Mojo, located at 115 Hardware St in the CBD is deemed one of the most Instagrammable cafe in Melbourne.
The cafe’s spacious and well designed atmosphere makes it very calming. The place offers various meals, desserts and blends served luxuriously.
If you are up for something unique however, the Black Latte containing peanuts, almonds and black sesame is definitely worth the try.
Sweetie & Moustache Dessert Lounge
Want something that’s a little bit more posh? Why not head down to Sweetie & Moustache on Russell St and lavish in its UK-inspired decor.
Like the previously mentioned eateries, this dessert parlour offers various desserts and drinks. Although the drinks have a common design, they do look visually appealing.
The drink we tried was their Fruity Fruit mocktail. Served with seasonal fruits in black tea, we certainly recommend trying this one out!
And if you are looking to satisfy that sweet tooth, this is one place you’ll definitely want to hit up!
Naughty Boy Cafe
Naughty Boy Cafe, a brunch restaurant in 499 Lygon St, Carlton, offers a simple environment to dine in or simply have a drink.
They are known for their artistic craft in plating and designing milkshakes, which are also known as ‘freakshakes’.
The restaurant’s price range might appear average for some but for others may feel like it’s just above a student budget. Nonetheless, if you are feeling fancy, you should consider visiting Naughty Boy Cafe.
The Dessert Kitchen
The Dessert Kitchen, located in Chinatown, is another place to savour that sweet tooth and is a popular destination that serves a variety of desserts.
But, we reckon the one that stands out most from their menu is the hot chocolate complete with a cute marshmallow bear dipped onto the drink.
The place can be a bit crowded and at night can especially be hard to find a seat (expect queues at night!) but it’s surely worth waiting for if you want to add more cuteness to your Instagram feed.
