Do it for the Gram!
Are you one of those people that has to snap a picture of your meal before you start eating?! I most definitely am! I love posting food pics to IG, I think it adds a particular flair to my feed and its just nice to show the places I go to and types of food I enjoy! Now, that being said, some places are more "Instagram-worthy" than others, so here is a list of my favorite restaurants & coffee shops here in Naples, whether you're local or plan on visiting you should definitely add this post to your bookmarks for reference!
I actually just went to this place last week for the first time and absolutely loved it! I love the lighting, the colors inside, the furniture, its just perfect! The food is healthy as well which is great, and may I add, I hadn't had a good matcha latte in a while!
2. Second Cup
This is probably the one coffee shop I visit the most, I'd say at the very least once a week, and as a matter of fact I'm writing this blog entry from the very same table in this photo. I shoot the majority of my outfit pictures at Mercato so this is like a hang out spot for my friends and I after we're done shooting. It just has a very chill vibe to it, I always ask for a glass mug instead of the regular paper cup they'd normally offer, I don't know it makes me feel like I'm home or something. But anyways the lighting here is on point for pictures as well!
This particular cafe is pretty popular among local bloggers. I actually 'discovered" my now-friend Katelyn through a picture she took here, after she tagged their Instagram page. This would become our go-to spot whenever we'd shoot together. I really like the metal tables here. One thing to know though, this place does belong to the Naples-Cycler so expect a bunch of sweaty cyclists coming in and out the majority of the time you're there.
Located at The Waterside Shops, Brio is the perfect place for food pictures honestly, everything is mostly white which makes the food or object of the picture stand out more. I don't really come here all that often but when I do I make sure to photograph whatever I order ;)
Now moving on from coffee and burgers to actual satisfying meals hah! I shot this at Cheesecake by Coastland Mall, this is the herb crusted salmon, I am such a creature of habit you guys I legit only eat this meal every single time I go, I guess thats the virgo in me. (I feel like I'm doing more of a restaurant review with todays post, but it will help you make a better decision when choosing the right place to go to.) Now the lighting is not the best here but the presentation of the food is spot-on, there's also tables outside!
7. Jane's Cafe
8. The Counter
This restaurant has a really clean "aesthetic" to it. The floor and the tables go really well for food pictures. This shot in particular was taken inside but they have outside tables as well and they are silver which gives it that "minimal" look that is so popular on Intagram atm!
Lastly, the Sakura Buffet on Immokalee Rd. I absolutely love sushi so I've been to quite a few places around town, this restaurant in particular has really cool lights inside as you can tell by the reflection on the table, and it is a buffet, frankly you can't beat the prize!
