The ‘Hipster Missed Connections’ Instagram Account Is Almost Too Hipster To Be True

The 'Hipster Missed Connections' Instagram Account Is Almost Too Hipster To Be True

There’s a coffee spot that I hit at least once a week when I feel like treating myself and/or am too lazy to make breakfast. Their menu is vegan-friendly, their coffees are better with butter, and everything about eating and drinking there makes me fully aware that I’m millennial scum. I’m not ashamed, though, because this should surprise no one.

But the unspoken beauty of this place? The people watching. As with any coffee shop that doesn’t rhyme with “car shucks,” you’re going to run into an eclectic crowd. But once you start putting collagen into your iced coffees, you’re going to get an even more eclectic crowd.

It just so happens this coffee shop was featured on an Instagram account that came across my feed – and the entire account is an absolute diamond in the rough.

It’s called Hipster Missed Connections and at the time of posting this, they have just 374 followers. But with such a modest following, their posts do not disappoint.

I don’t know how one could possibly differentiate between all the people with “kale” sweatshirts and Birkenstocks on, but I hope these two find each other at one farmer’s market or another.

Hopefully not all things yeast. With these two, you just fet the feeling that they’ve shared a Kombucha mother at some point.

I think I gave this person a dollar once.

Been low key considering buying some clear Warby Parker frames myself, but it’s just not in my budget considering how much money I’ve been spending in between yoga sessions at Whole Foods.

I get the feeling that these two wouldn’t be interested in the same double date ideas as I would be. But hey, more power to them and their gray / man-bunned hair.

Follow the account and enjoy more of their too-hipster-to-be-true missed connections. Hell, you might even be a part of one next time you’re getting some grass-fed collagen in your coffee.
