10 Instagrammable Spots in Cambridge

Up your Insta-game with Gabi's picks

Hi, all! You may remember me from the Cambridge biking guide series in summers past. If you don’t (that’s totally cool!), I’m Gabi and I blog over on By Gabriella about entertaining tips and tricks, traveling, my brand new rescue pup, and more. And now, I’m thrilled to be sharing some of my favorite Instagrammable Cambridge spots with you.

I’m going to ahead and let you know that the title of this is slightly misleading because nearly all of Cambridge is Instagrammable. But, we had to narrow it down somehow! So, here are 10 of my favorite Instagrammable spots around Cambridge.

10 Instagrammable Cambridge Spots:

1. Tatte

Tatte has to be one of the most instagrammable cafés, in general. Their locations are filled with simple white tiling, stunning details, oh - and a stellar menu.

2. Longfellow House: Washington's Headquarters

The Longfellow House is just a few steps from the heart of Harvard Square. It’s quite the serene spot away from some of that hustle and bustle of Harvard Square. Bonus: It’s surrounded by greenery and blooms!

3. The Hourly

The Hourly Oyster House is divine, and it’s this nearly hidden spot in the heart of Harvard Square. Go ready to enjoy some cocktails and oysters, and take a bunch of photos of course!

4. Freepoint Hotel

Whether you’re staying at Freepoint or not, it’s worth a visit. The entire lobby/bar/workspace is designed to a t. I could go on and on about how beautiful it is, but I think you should pay them a visit for yourself!

5. Brattle Square Florist

This is one of my absolute favorite flower shops in the Cambridge/Boston area. The outside alone will convince you a trip inside is worth it. And it really is - you’ll find some of the most unique flowers right through their front doors.

6. Harvard Square

This is one of those times when selecting just one spot was too tough. All of Harvard Square is quaint, intriguing, and downright Instagrammable.

7. Church Street Mural

Heading out for a mural tour through Cambridge? Well, add the Church Street Mural to your list! That gorgeous blue should be enough to convince you.

8. Loyal Nine

If beautiful cafés are your thing (how could they not be?), Loyal Nine is worth a trip. Not only are you treated to a delicious coffee, the atmosphere is just lovely.

9. Les Sablons

This restaurant has to be one of the most Instagram-worthy in all of Cambridge. Plus, the lower level is an oyster bar. It’s like music to my ears...and stomach!

10. KSQ Sign

The KSQ sign is just so fun! It’s a bright pop of color right in the heart of Kendall Square and the perfect photo spot.

Hope you enjoy your Instagram tour through Cambridge! Be sure to use #picturecambridge when you’re posting on social media so we can check them out.
