Imagine that you're at a restaurant. The food finally comes to the table – what's the first thing you do before digging in?

For a lot of people, it's the obligatory food photo. And there sure are some great dishes to take pictures of in Minneapolis, from the hi-tops at Hi-Lo Diner, to the Jucy Lucy at Matt's Bar.

But according to USA Today, the most popular place in the city to check in, photograph a culinary masterpiece, and share it on Instagram is actually ... a coffee shop. They asked Instagram to go through billions of geotags to find the most posted restaurant in each state’s biggest city.

As it turns out, Black: Coffee and Waffle Bar is Minneapolis' most geotagged restaurant on Instagram, USA Today says.

Here's a sample of what people are 'gramming there:

Ever since Black: Coffee and Waffle Bar opened two years ago in the southeast Como neighborhood, diners haven't been able to resist sharing those photogenic waffles and lattes.

The shop now has a brand new, second location located on Marshall Ave. and Cretin Ave. in the Merriam Park neighborhood of St. Paul. More information can be found on their website.

You can check out each state’s most Instagrammed restaurant here.
