LA restaurants that are Instagram all-stars

From Sqirl to République to In-N-Out, here are the 10 LA restaurants that will forever pop up on your Instagram feed


If your Instagram feed looks anything like ours, photos of drool-worthy dishes and gorgeous coffee shop interiors are continuously surfacing. And more often that not, they're coming from the same places—restaurants and bars and food stands that have been stylishly snapped since their first day in business. Even LA's most popular Instagram accounts are in on the frenzy. The best thing to do? Embrace it. Here, the most popular food and drink destinations in LA to show up on your feed. In-N-Out, we just can't quit you.

5. Commissary

Roy Choi's vegetable-driven restaurant on the roof of the Line Hotel is like a little secret garden...that serves alcohol in buckets.

6. In-N-Out

Tourists, food bloggers, locals—everyone seems to want to prove that, yes, they did order that Double Double with extra cheese. We're not judging.

7. Coolhaus

With an endless combination of cookies and ice cream, no two Coolhaus pictures look the same. It's like a snowflake. A delicious, sugary snowflake.

8. Alfred Coffee & Kitchen

Alfred's "But First, Coffee" sign, its black and white tile floor and signature moustache emblem all make this coffee shop—and its two sister locations—prime Instagram material.

9. Pink's Hot Dogs

This we know: As long as people keep lining up for Pink's famous hot dogs, they will keep taking photos of said hot dogs. We can't explain it either.
