The numbers are in for Instagram's year in food — and they include a list of top honors for the bakeries around the country from which people just couldn't stop posting photos in 2017. If you find yourself at these iconic spots, you'll want to seek out their buzziest items... just to confirm that they taste as good as they look!
1. Cafe Du Monde — New Orleans, LA
You'll look like you partied a little too hard at the disco last night, but the powdered sugar-drenched beignets (a pillowy French take on a donut) and a strong cafe au lait is really all you need for a proper pick-me-up in New Orleans.
2. Voodoo Doughnut — Portland, OR
There are dozens of wacky flavors available at this Portland institution, but you've definitely got to include the original Voodoo Doll, a raspberry jelly doughnut with chocolate frosting and a pretzel stake, in your assortment.
3. DŌ, Cookie Dough Confections — New York, NY
If you're waiting in line to eat raw cookie dough and the chance to snap the neon "Dreams Dough Come True" sign... you better make sure to get your scoops of cookie dough in a chocolate chip cookie cone. It's the only way!
4. Taiyaki NYC — New York, NY
Fish-shaped cones filled with soft serve ice cream are all the rage here, but if you're visiting during the holidays, you might consider these festive Christmas cones instead.
5. Little Damage — Los Angeles, CA
Everyone loves the "I Licked It, So It's Mine" sign here — it's the perfect whimsical backdrop to your otherwise goth black soft serve ice cream and charcoal cones.
6. Starbucks Reserve Roastery — Seattle, WA
No Zombie fraps here: The Starbucks Roastery Reserve is exclusively offering holiday tasting journeys of their Starbucks Reserve Christmas 2017 coffee from the first Starbucks owned farm in Costa Rica paired with candied orange, ginger chocolate, a sage leaf, and herbed cracker.
7. 3 Arts Club Cafe at Restoration Hardware — Chicago, IL
Impulse buy this amazing deconstructed banana split from 3 Arts Club Cafe to prevent accidentally splurging on crazy home furnishings at Restoration Hardware.
8. Dominique Ansel Bakery — New York, NY
Come (early!) for the cronuts, order the maximum (two per person), and marvel at the croissant-doughnut hybrid that catapulted Ansel into international pastry fame. This month's flavor is egg nog caramel and it's extra ooey-gooey.
9. Serendipity 3 — New York, NY
Most customers are here for the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, but if you really want to do it up for the 'Gram, the Golden Opulence Sundae is your best bet. And it's only $1,000, so.
10. Sugar Factory — Las Vegas, NV
No time to be demure when you're at the Sugar Factory in Vegas, baby. So pour up a punch bowl of Ocean Blue, a liquid nitro-powered Hypnotiq cocktail garnished with gummy sharks. You'll be crushing likes on social media in no time.
