You know the drill: The waiter puts the food on the table, you get your water glass out of the way, line up your silverware, and snap a picture of your grain bowl or avocado toast (or avocado rose if you’re a next-level ‘grammer). After all, taking the time to photograph your brunch, dinner, or matcha date is good for the tastebuds.

But there’s an art to racking up the double-tap love while eating healthy. Consider this your guide for knowing where to go and what to order. (Another way to stay updated on the newest healthy nosh hot spots? Follow us on Instagram!)

50 Carmine St., 10014, New York, NY, 646-669-9888, jackswifefreda.com

The menu at this popular NYC establishment is so stacked with tantalizing dishes that it’s hard to go wrong—but this Israeli baked egg dish will look as good on your feed as it does on the table IRL. Plus, eating your greens is important….

2. Island Bowl, Backyard Bowls

Multiple Locations, CA, backyardbowls.com

Whether you make them yourself or order them for breakfast (or brunch, or snack, or…), açai bowls are pretty, well, pretty. Backyard Bowls’ offerings are especially photogenic with their multitude of bright, filter-friendly topping options. Order the Island Bowl for a blend of tropical flavors (think mango, pineapple, and coconut) with all the fixings.

3. Avocado Toast, The Butcher’s Daughter

New York, NY (multiple locations) and Venice, CA, thebutchersdaughter.com

Would any brunch be complete without toast covered in mashed green goodness? The Butcher’s Daughter uses curry, cilantro, mustard seeds, and lime to make their toast even tastier. And the egg on top not only looks pretty, it ups the protein factor.

4. Wild Spring Burger, Wild Food Café

14 Neal’s Yard, London, UK, WC2H 9DP, +44 20 7419 2014, wildfoodcafe.com

Each burger is handmade with (in-house) pitted olives, quinoa, and shiitake mushrooms. We’re pretty sure all that extra care makes raw and vegan look even better. (Oh yeah, and it tastes pretty good, too.)

5. Ricotta Toast, Two Hands

164 Mott St., New York, NY, 10013, 917-475-1815, twohandsnyc.com

Avocado toast is a staple, but for a slightly sweeter bite there’s nothing like ricotta. Two Hands drizzles their ricotta toast with honey and chia, and tops it with fresh berries.

17-18/110 Ramsgate Ave, North Bondi NSW 2026, Australia, +61 2 9300 0111, porchandparlour.com

This bowl rightfully earns its name, full of kale, spinach, avocado, and herbs like mint, cilantro, and parsley. Top it all off with a perfectly poached egg and you’ve got a.m. Insta-perfection.

7. Mae Bowl, The Mae Deli

21 Seymour Pl, London, UK, W1H 5BH, themaedeli.com

Ella Woodward, the beloved food blogger behind Deliciously Ella, opened a plant-based deli/café in London with her now-husband—so no surprise that the rotating menu is packed with highly snappable options. Start with the Mae Bowl, which depending on the week could be filled with delicious sides like maple roasted sweet potatoes, turmeric roasted cauliflower, or sun dried tomato falafel.

If there’s a line out the door, you’ve found By Chloe. The burger, which is made with black beans, quinoa, and sweet potatoes, is the eatery’s most Instagrammed item—and trust us, that’s saying a lot.

9. Whole Bowl, Café Gratitude

Multiple Locations, CA, cafegratitude.com

West Coast plant-based chain serves up bowls upon bowls of (photogenic) goodness. All the dishes have feel-good names (think Grateful, Humble, or Accepting), and the colorful, in-season produce make for happy tummies and limited need for filters. But the MID—Most Instagrammed Dish—might be The Whole Bowl, a perfectly balanced macro bowl complete with drool worthy ingredients like braised butternut squash, adzuki beans, sprouted probiotic grains, and a garlic-tahini sauce.

10. Sweet Tree Rolls, Beyond Sushi 

229 E. 14th St., New York, NY, 646-861-2889, beyondsushinyc.com

These vegan sushi rolls were practically made to be photographed. Colorful rice, roasted and pickled veggies, and creative sauces (you won’t be reaching for the soy) make these both aesthetically appealing and majorly appetizing. The Sweet Tree Rolls are packed with sweet potato and avocado and topped with alfalfa sprouts—and the effect looks like a little sushi rainbow. (Emoji idea, anyone?)

11. Sorrel Pesto Rice Bowl, Sqirl

720 N Virgil Ave #4, Los Angeles, CA 90029, 213-394-6526, sqirlla.com

You’ll inevitably wait (and wait, and wait) for Sqirl’s adored grain bowl, which is all the more reason to document it. The packed-with-flavor entree is made with nut-free pesto-topped rice, feta, meyer lemon, radish, feta, and a poached egg. #brunchgameonpoint

12. Market Mushroom Tacos, Antique Taco

1360 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60622, 773-687-8697, antiquetaco.com

Tacos may not be the first thing that come to mind when we think of the Windy City (or healthy eats, for that matter), but this Chicago taco joint deserves every word of its good reputation. From the large windows and antique furniture to the fresh ingredients sourced in each dish, no detail goes unnoticed—in both flavor and aesthetic. The Market Mushroom tacos will not only be doing your insta-game a favor, but you’ll also be ordering a veggie-packed option sourced from local farmers’ markets.
