‘Grammin Through Georgetown

Some of my favorite spots in Georgetown happen to be the most Instaworthy, which means that if you’re addicted to updating your feed (who isn’t?!) there are some cute, photogenic spots to check out next time you’re in this part of town. (I promise the actual places are pretty cool, too!).


If you like ice cream…Thomas Sweet is a Georgetown staple! Stop by for a blend-in (add your favorite candy), frozen yogurt (there are so many good flavors), or a traditional cone. My parents fell in love with Thomas Sweet’s Princeton location when they were students there, so we’ve been coming to the Georgetown one for awhile. It’s dangerously close to my apartment and actually seems pretty busy at all times, even after work! It’s never too crowded, though, it just clearly is popular, and for good reason! Stop by on a date or with out of town friends or even by yourself…why not?


Only a few blocks away is Dolcezza which has AMAZING gelato. There are a few locations around DC, but this is the only one I’ve tried. The upstairs part is great for studying or quiet conversation, but there are also a few tables downstairs and a bench outside. If you’re not in the mood for gelato (who are you?!), the iced vanilla latte is also the bomb. Way better than Starbucks in my opinion!


Avocado toast is basically an Instagrammer’s dream…and South Block has a delicious version. Stop by after SoulCycle (it’s right next door) for a healthy post-workout treat. They also sell a great almond butter and banana toast and lots of good smoothies.


Lady Camellia, an adorable little tea place, requires reservations, but it’s worth the wait! The cute cups and saucers make the whole experience even sweeter, and their baked goods are delish.

If you need a little inspiration, stop by Violet Boutique and snap a photo of this motivational quote. It’s sure to brighten up your feed (to be completely honest, I didn’t pay attention to the actual products being sold here…I was just in it for the ‘gram!).

Street art is everywhere in DC, but this beautiful mural on Wisconsin and P cannot be missed!


The DC cookies at Dean and Deluca may be a bit pricy, but they’re just too adorable that I had to try one.


The Georgetown Flea is full of fun, unique finds every Sunday, and Saturdays bring the farmers market (so glad that farmers market season is upon us!).


Last but not least…who can say no to a Laduree trip? The macarons are beautiful, the atmosphere is chic and relaxing, and there is just so much color and happiness overall that it’s basically an Instagrammer’s dream.

Anything you’d add to this list?

  1. If/when I move to DC, it’s a bit of a goal of mine to live in Georgetown- I know that’s pretty common, and it can be a bit pricy, but if I get the chance, there’s no way I’ll be able to pass it up!


    1. I love living here! The only con is not being near a Metro line, but I work in Virginia and get there by car, so personally I’m thankful that it isn’t a huge issue (and taking the bus around on the weekends is super easy!).
