The 15 Instagram Worthy Cafes in SF Bay Area

Is a cafe worth it if it doesn't have wifi? It totally is. Perhaps more so, as you'd be forced to look at your surroundings and what you're consuming. Here are 15 of Bay Area's most Instagram Worthy Cafes, whether we're talking about the sexy drinks, kouign amanns, or lovely interiors.

Boba Guys | Hayes Valley, San Francisco, CA

This cafe is freakin' hipster. Lit with tea people on the wall, the tea people make long lines for inventive flavors like Hong Kong style milk tea, Muscat Oolong, Duke of Earl Grey, and India Chai, while using only the best ingredients - Califia farms and Straus, we're looking at you.

Tartine Manufactory | Mission, San Francisco, CA

The manufactory has been hyping in the last month or so, but does it live it up to the hype? The interior provides a great senses of space and awe, and this quince danish was just as good--though left no space in our stomachs.

Reveille Coffee Co | Mission Bay, San Francisco, CA

This elite cafe in Mission Bay serves the best brunch in the district. Couldn't make any promises beyond that.

Trouble Coffee Co | Oakland, CA

We caused trouble at Trouble Coffee in Oakland. Walls are white and minimalist; the coffee was basic, too.

The Cro Cafe | Oakland, CA

A small cafe in the hidden alleyway of Temescal district, Oakland, we were surprised that such a place existed.

1 Oz Coffee | Santa Clara, CA

This is a hidden gem. A visit here allows me to pretend I'm on vacation while working at the same time.

Tertulia Coffee | Oakland, CA

At the heart of uptown Oakland, this spacious cafe shares a space with an art gallery and houses many hipsters.

Milkcow Cafe | Fremont, CA

The Korean soft serve came to Bay Area with many expansions - right now they can be found in San Bruno and Fremont.

Panino Giusto | Cupertino, CA

I was taken to Italy with heavenly panini laden with luxurious truffle oil. Great for tea time too.

Teaquation Cafe | Redwood City, CA

Craft mocktails meets tea in an artisanal tea space near downtown RWC.

Fifty / Fifty Coffee & Tea | Richmond District, San Francisco, CA

This small, homely cafe is beautiful.

85C Cafe & Bakery | Cupertino, CA (multiple locations)

We've got many of these opening up everywhere in Bay Area.

Elite Audio Coffee Bar | SoMa, San Francisco, CA

I didn't know I could fall in love with a latte.

Cafe Carmel | Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

Located in a mini boutique mall within downtown Carmel, this cafe is great to take a break from all that art gallery gazing and feasting on pastries and French food.

Fresh Nation Desserts | San Mateo, CA

Recently opened, this dessert shop has been making a big buzz with the HK style dessert shop community. We love the mango pomelo sago topped with mango ice cream.
