As a Visit Bellevue Ambassador, I’ve been exploring more of Bellevue regularly. It’s been so fun to get to know the local businesses and hunt for the most Instagrammable places in Bellevue. If you’re looking for photography spots in Bellevue, Washington, this blog post is for you.
Before we dive into the best photo spots around Bellevue, where is Bellevue?
Bellevue is across Lake Washington from Seattle. Located in the East side region of King County, Bellevue is the 5th largest city in Washington State. While the city was incorporated in 1953, Bellevue has grown quite a bit over the years. There are lots of new restaurants, shopping areas, and over 100 parks to explore in Bellevue.
Here are the 10 most instagrammable places in Bellevue Washington:
1. Lady Yum in Bellevue Square
Address: 575 Bellevue Square Space 256, Bellevue, WA 98004
If you’re looking for macarons and one of the most beautiful dessert places in Bellevue, I highly recommend stopping by Lady Yum. I absolutely love how their store is styled. You can find fun fringe bar stools and tables to hang out with your girlfriends. You can also pick up delicious macaron flavors like salted caramel, honey lavender, unicorn, or espresso fudge.
You can also find Lady Yum in Downtown Kirkland, Seattle Tacoma (Seatac) International Airport, and the Amazon Seattle Campus.
2. Old Bellevue Main Street – Green Wall
Address: 103 102nd Ave SE, Bellevue, WA 98004
If you’re looking for a green wall or building in Bellevue, this restaurant on Old Bellevue Main Street is a great spot. We were initially taking photos outside Matcha Magic. We decided to walk down Main Street to see if there were any other photo spots. This green building/wall immediately caught our eye, and we knew we had to snap a few photos.
3. Matcha Magic
Address: 10246 Main St A, Bellevue, WA 98004
If you’re looking for a local matcha shop in Bellevue, I recommend stopping by Matcha Magic on Main Street. This matcha shop is a women-minority-owned shop that offers matcha mattes, espresso, tonics, and potions like matcha julep.
I love the Ube matcha latte and strawberry matcha latte on the menu. Matcha Magic is decorated beautifully on the inside, and they’re also pink on the outside!
4. Cantina Monarca
Address: 504 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue, WA 98004
If you’re looking for a new restaurant to try in Bellevue, I recommend checking out Cantina Monarca. This restaurant offers a modern take on traditional Mexican cuisine as well as an elevated tequila lounge. The restaurant’s interior is beautiful and intended to make you feel like you’re in to Tulum.
My friend Ribicca and I stopped here for lunch on a weekday. I recommend making reservations ahead of time if you want to eat at the restaurant on the weekends.
5. Teal Wall outside of Anthropologie in Bellevue Square
Address: 1070 Bellevue Square Unit BSQ1070, Bellevue, WA 98004
If you’re looking for a teal wall in Bellevue, you can find it outside Anthropologie at Bellevue Square. I noticed this teal wall when my friend Jenny suggested we take photos in front of it.
6. Nana’s Green Tea
Address: 16 103rd Ave NE, Bellevue, WA 98004
If you haven’t heard of Nana’s Green Tea before, Nana’s Green Tea is a modern Japanese café. You can find Japanese foods and desserts featuring matcha and azuki in modern ways. I’ve always wanted to try their matcha parfait but hadn’t reached their Seattle location. So when they opened their location in Bellevue, my friend Jenny and I finally decided to try it out.
7. Mural across Nana’s Green Tea
Address: 103rd Ave NE and NE 1st Place
If you’re looking for a fun mural near Old Bellevue-Main Street, I recommend crossing the street from Nana’s Green Tea. This mural is in the alleyway, so please be careful about oncoming traffic or parked cars leaving the area.
8. MILK Bar
Address: 100 Bellevue Square, Bellevue, WA 98004
MILK BAR officially opened outside of Seattle this year. You can find MILK BAR in Bellevue Square right in front of Nordstrom. MILK BAR is known for its cookies, cakes, and soft serves. I ordered the cereal milk soft serve.
9. (Springtime only) Cherry Blossoms at Bellevue Downtown Park
Address: 10201 NE 4th St Bellevue WA 98004
You can see the cherry blossoms if you’re visiting Bellevue during mid-March or early April!
