Most Instagrammable Sweets in Austin

Austin is full of Instagrammable places from the unique murals to the great views over Lady Bird Lake. But of course, we’re here to talk about the most Instagrammable TREATS in the city! Not only will you satisfy your sweet tooth, but you’ll have a new pic to add to the gram.


Bananas + chocolate = no better combo. You could even argue this is on the “healthier” side of desserts. Choose your dipping sauce and your toppings to create an insta-worthy shot (rainbow sprinkles are always a crowd pleaser)!


Gordough’s donuts are a meal in and of themselves. There are so many combinations to choose from and they are all rich and delicious.

Churro Co.

Churro Co. takes a simple churro and kicks it up a notch with different sauces and toppings. They are all super aesthetic and mouthwatering.

Launderette Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sandwich

This is definitely some of the cutest desserts in the game! Launderette is most known for it’s dinner menu but these little ice cream sandwiches have taken Instagram by storm (and you can see why)!

Cold Cookie Co.

You know when you just can’t decide between a cookie or ice cream? Cold Cookie Co. has solved that issue. Plus the truck makes a great backdrop for photos!

The Peached Tortilla

I can’t talk about Instagrammable desserts without including the donut milkshake from The Peached Tortilla! Every month the flavors change, but this one was a Captain Crunch shake, with a Frosted Flakes rim, topped with a glazed donut.


Halcyon S’mores

You don’t have to have a whole bonfire to get your s’mores fix. Cozy up at Halcyon with your own little fire and all the fixins’ to make little s’mores!

Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop

Sugar Mama’s continuously comes up with super creative and seasonal designs for their pastries. It’s worth stopping in every few weeks just to see what they have in store!

Perla’s Donuts & Pop Tarts

Perla’s is a seafood restaurant right on South Congress but they have some of the most beautiful pastries I’ve seen! Check out their delicious donuts and adorable oversized pop-tarts.

Steel City Pops

These are definitely the prettiest popsicles I’ve seen.

Holy Roller Choco Taco

Austin is known for its tex-mex and breakfast tacos, but what about this Choco Taco?!

Baked Bear

Baked Bear has amazing custom ice cream sandwiches! I got mine with funfetti cookies, bear batter ice cream (birthday cake + brownies) and sprinkles. Plus the cookies are HOT PRESSED to make them warm and topped with whipped cream. Doesn’t get any better!

Time to treat yo’ self to one of these indulgent sweets!
