Did you even indulge in your morning cup of joe if you don't have a picture to prove it?

After living in New York City for some time, I quickly learned that 10/10 times, Manhattan coffee shops are just as beautiful as the latte art.

So, I've hunted down seven NYC coffee shops that are likely to satisfy your aesthetic eye, and serve you a whole lot more than just a quality cup of coffee! Yet, these shops will give you the ideal atmosphere for Instagram-worthy shots of some of your favorite caffeine delight!!

1. Happy Bones //

If you happen to find yourself in Nolita anytime soon, this quaint and chic café is for you. Whether you bring a friend, or hide out on a rainy day, don't leave without documenting your own sip against the exposed white wash brick and marble tables!

(Note: Happy Bone's is also connected to a vintage store where you can dig for designer pieces after you indulge!)

2. Ralphs Coffee //

This hidden gem is located on the third floor of the Ralph Lauren store on 5th avenue. If you're looking for an experience, or you just simply want to rest your feet in between shopping down the famous block, Ralph's has your back. I highly suggest you fuel up with their dreamy chocolate chip cookies!
