What makes a good café? It’s no longer just about how good the food tastes or how they brew their coffee. Some foodies now look at other non-food factors such as unique interior design, food presentation and if it’s Instagram-worthy. We see so many fantastic cafés and restaurants worldwide, but what about good ol’ New Zealand?
Time to get your phones, cameras, and tummy ready. Check out the list we’ve curated for our top Instagram worthy cafés.
