Whether you’re guilty of Instagramming a picture of your brunch or obsessively stalking #eeeeeats, there’s no denying that Instagram is the best social media platform for foodspiration. There are over 160 million posts tagged #food along with over 45 million posts tagged #instafood on the social media platform!
From the professional chefs to health coaches to food bloggers, anyone can join in on the phenomenon. Not so fast; you can’t simply pull out your iPhone and Instagram the first picture you snap of your sandwich from the bakery down the street. It requires the perfect background, a good balance of color, props, and the right angle to bring in the likes. And if you do it correctly, it can help your Instagram popularity, as well as your business.
You may be new to this social media obsession, or you may already have your feed full of delicious treats. Either way, we have the ultimate list of Instagram accounts that post the best food. Whether you’re looking for dinner and a view, healthy recipes, or incredible indulgences, there’s an account on this list for everyone.

We had to include these guys on the list, after all they are the creators of the hashtag #eeeeeats. In addition to the wildly popular hashtag, @infatuation is known for its restaurant review app “for the people.” Their Instagram feed surely doesn’t disappoint the people, with over 475k followers.
3. Eating Bird Food

4. Eating NYC
@eatingnyc is just an ordinary girl, other than the fact that she runs one of the most successful food Instagram accounts in NYC. By adding a location to her pictures, her followers know exactly where to go (instead of living vicariously through her beautiful photographs).
