Best Desserts to Post on Instagram

East 14th Bakery & Cafe

Several Hong Kong-style dessert shops thrive in the Bay Area, but the attention to detail makes this San Leandro spot one of the best. That's particularly the case when it comes to aesthetics. The one dessert guaranteed to get major heart-clicks on Instagram is the mille crepe cake. "Mille" means "thousand" in French, and this light, airy cake is made by stacking several thin crepes layered with cream. While invented in France, this style of cake became internationally famous once a Japanese chain started making them, and now it's more common to find them at an Asian dessert shop than a French one. At East 14th Bakery, the cakes come spiked with matcha tea, fresh mango, or durian, and the vivid green or yellow hues make for a striking photo. There's also coconut pudding served in a whole coconut, black sesame soup with colorful mochi-esque balls, and milkshake floats finished with Pocky sticks.
