When we say Instagrammable spots, these does not only limit to beaches and resorts. Not even to malls and parks only. And if you’re someone like me who usually do Instagram most of the time, and don’t have that enough time to travel, choosing an Instagrammable Spot in the metro would be a great idea!

I haven’t traveled so much this year around the Philippines. If I do recall, I have only traveled to Siargao, Bantayan Island, Boracay Island and stayed in some hotels and resorts in Cebu. And yes, every time I travel or stay somewhere, I do make sure to bring a lot of photos with me when I get back home. Haha. Of course, Instagram is life!

While there are months that I haven’t traveled so much, there are times that I don’t have any photos to post. In substitute for this, I always make sure to make content and look for an Instagrammable spot in the metro. And yes, I always bring friends with me though to take photos haha. And now, as we end this year, I want to bring you all my suggestions and recommendations of Cebu’s Instagrammable Cafes of 2019.

Instagrammable Cafes in Cebu 2019

All the cafes listed are based on my personal opinions. I already included the WiFi connection based on my visit since most of us would really ask for WiFi. Haha. So far, these are the cafes that really stood out to my liking.

TAKE NOTE: There might be cafes in my list that did open maybe a year or two already and there are some that opened this year.

1.) Purveyor Coffee

Purveyor Coffee serves a different interior unlike most colorful cafes that you would see in the metro. This cafe would be perfect for those folks who love minimalist designs. It would be best to wear something not so bright, and something semi-formalish to really match the color of this cafe.



WiFi Connection: 8/10 (based on my visit)

LocationUnit G-10 Ground Floor 4J Bldg (Sampaguita Suites, General Maxilom Ave, Cebu City, 6000 Cebu

⏰ Operating Hours

2.) Bicester Cafe

Who would miss this lovely cafe? Bicester Cafe opened just a few years ago and it still remains beautiful to me since then. This cafe’s interior is just so unique and so different from its other species.

Bicester Cafépronounced as BIST•UH or BISS-tər, was named by the owner because of her love and inspiration for Bicester Village which is known to be an outlet shopping hub on the outskirts of Bicester in Oxfordshire, England.




In here you would see an amazing painting of the Bicester Village on its walls, and a spot with neon lights which you could really take a shot!

WiFi Connection: 7/10 (based on my visit)

Location: Mahogany Arcade, Pope John Paul II Ave., Kasambagan, Mabolo (2.13 mi)
Cebu City 6000

⏰ Operating Hours: Daily from 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM

3.) Sprocketeer Cafe

Sprocketeer, formerly known as Sprockets, launches a more vibrant brand and a new look last September 25, 2019. With the new name comes a fresh visage, resembling an updated and modern diner with cool hues of azure.

If you’re also up for a kinda vintage vibe of content, prepare your best retro OOTD because Sprocketeer Cafe is the place to be!



WiFi Connection: 6/10 (based on my visit)

Location: Juana Osmeña St, Cebu City, Cebu

4.) Juiceria

Time for pastel gaming! Juiceria does offer a wide range of smoothie bowls and healthy drinks at a reasonable price. Giving you a pink-chic and minimalist vibe, this cafe surely is a hit to be an Instagrammable Cafe!

There are also some plants and magazines around that you can use for photo opportunities. I would suggest you wear something pastel-ish or a resort-inspired OOTD since it would really match the ambiance of the place. 🥰🙌



WiFi Connection: I’m not sure if there was a WiFi here 😅

Location: Bonifacio District, F. Cabahug St, Cebu City, 6000 Cebu

5.) The Neighborhood Cafe

I would highly suggest you visit The Neighborhood Cafe. I have been to The Neighborhood Cafe only once and would really come back soon not only because this place really is Instagrammable but because of the food!! (So good!)

This cafe would surely give your photo a different touch of ambiance. It can be used as a place for a normal Instagram shoot, or even for a holiday shoot which is timely for Christmas or New Year.




It would be nice to wear something brown, red, maroon or white in the place to match it with its interiors. Other earthy colors would also be a good idea!

WiFi Connection: 6/10 (based on my visit)

Location: J. Fortich St, Cebu City, Cebu

⏰ Operating Hours
Monday to Friday: 11:00 AM-10:00 PM
Saturday to Sunday: 7:00 AM – 10:00 PM

6.) La Vie in the Sky

Lastly, to conclude it for this year, I would want to add La Vie in the Sky. I can’t say that La Vie in the Sky is a complete cafe itself but maybe 1/4 of it since they still sell options of coffee. This place, aside from selling a little bit of coffee, highly focuses on their selections of bread, pastries, pasta and a wide range of wine options.

What I love about La Vie in the sky is how the overall look and experience of the place is surely amazing! Every corners are really Instagram-worthy and you can even see the a panoramic view of Cebu City.
