The Most Instagrammable Dishes and Drinks in the Hamptons

Raise your hand if you don’t let your friends eat until you’ve snapped a ’Gram of their dishes. Lucky for you (maybe not so much for your friends), there are more than a few food photo ops on the East End. From a rainbow-hued breakfast bowl to a jet-black latte, these eats and drinks are sure to gain you at least a few new followers. 

7 Hamptons Clam Shacks That Are Summer Dining at Its Finest

Flat Black At Left Hand Coffee

Last summer’s charcoal food trend meets this year’s oat milk obsession in Left Hand Coffee’s activated charcoal and oat milk latte. (Here’s hoping the health department ban doesn’t make it this far east.)

83 S. Elmwood Ave., Montauk; 631-238-5434 or

Desserts At Nick & Toni's

We want to be Rachel Flatley when we grow up. She’s the pastry chef behind beloved East Hampton restaurant Nick & Toni’s whimsical desserts. Whatever you order will be as delicious as it is pretty, but we’re currently obsessing over the rhubarb mille-feuille, a puff pastry layered with vanilla-rose mousse and hazelnuts.

Lobster Roll At Bostwick’s Chowder House

Bet you can’t name a more iconic summer dish than a lobster roll. Whether you like yours Connecticut-style (hot with butter) or Maine-style (cold with mayo), you’ll find plenty to choose from in the Hamptons. For Instagram worthiness that’s also darn tasty, head to Bostwick’s Chowder House in East Hampton.

277 Pantigo Rd., East Hampton; 631-324-1111 or

Pitaya Bowl At Sagtown Coffee

Upgrade your breakfast with a brightly colored pitaya bowl that is sure to stand out in your feed. (It’s also a healthy way to start your day before you head to the beach and eat a lobster roll.)

78 Main St., Sag Harbor; 631-725-8696 or

Cocktails At Navy Beach

Home to arguably the best sunsets in Montauk, if not all the East End, Navy Beach deserves a spot or three in your summer Insta feed. Order one of the breezy summer cocktails (like the South Fork Fizz, made with lemon, mint, cucumber soda and vodka or gin), stick your toes in the sand, snap a pic…and then put your phone down and enjoy the evening.

16 Navy Rd., Montauk; 631-668-6868 or
