1. Tamed Fox

The Tamed Fox is perhaps one of the most popular Instagrammable cafes in Taipei, and for a good reason. Their doughnut-and-drink combos have become a bit of a trendy hit on the ‘gram and the cafe’s muted green hues provide a great backdrop wall for photos of their sweet treats. You’ll have to order the coffee and doughnut separately, but once you’ve got them, the cafe is basically your photographic playground.

4. Coffee Dpt

You’ll find Coffee Dpt tucked away within the lush Huashan 1914 Creative Park. Once you’ve made your way to this chic outdoor cafe, order a few cookies and prepare to treat yourself to the best sweet treat in all of Taiwan. Snap a picture before devouring them, or don’t, it doesn’t really matter as the cafe’s lush decor is enough of a setting for a quality Instagram upload anyway.

5. Jack & NaNa

The outdoor bar window at Jack & NaNa is so Instagrammable that we’re pretty sure you’ve seen the shot before if you’ve spent any time browsing the Taipei location tag. Lush, billowing green plants perfectly frame the seats to create a picture-perfect frame that you’ll have no need to edit. The coffee here is also extremely strong and super tasty. So, it’s a win-win any way you look at it.

6. Paper St.

Paper St. is home to super scaled-back, minimalistic vibes. And, while that might not be everybody’s aesthetic, it somehow works well for pretty much any kind of photo you want to take. Order a cup of some of the best coffee in Taipei and then take a seat at the window to set up for your photo. People-watching here is fun, which gives you something to do after you’ve finished your drink.

7. Sugar Pea

It is, of course, impossible to talk about the most Instagrammable cafes in Taipei without mentioning one of the best of all – Sugar Pea Cafe. Their fresh, wholesome food beckons hungry guests to enter where they’re welcomed by a whitewashed and welcoming locale.
