Worth the visit!

I could have tried EVERYTHING! The place is eclectic and beautiful! The pastries are top notch! Do not be scared of the line! It moves fast and is so worth it!

Don't let people get your hopes up about Amelie's. The desserts are good, but I wouldn't call them amazing. Obviously, personal preference comes to play, so it's definitely worth a try for yourself. And don't be surprised if there is a long line! Going off-peak can help a little, but it'll probably be at least 15 minutes to get in-and-out... More

I've been to the original location in NoDa several times. When Amelie's first opened in NoDa in 2008, Charlotte was desperately in need a hip, funky, 24-hour place coffee and dessert joint. Amelie's definitely filled the bill. The long lines, especially on weekends, is a testament to that. Today, I visited the new location in South Charlotte which opened in... More

No complaint on the bakery. The environment is nice and comfy. The parking is limited but good enough and the place inside is a bit tight. Certain day and time, it would be crowded since this place is a good for hangouts.

Amelie's has eclectic French decor and art in a comfortable setting. The sandwiches are good but overpriced. The desserts are rich and amazing and worth every penny.

9 of our family members visited this cafe on Sunday. I thought the decor was fun and imaginative. I recommend buying the pistachio macaroons which I thought were delicious. The flavor is like those in Paris but the macaroons are not as light. I thought the service was good but I didn't like having to wait at the coffee bar.... More

Amelies, a favorite when guests come from out of town. Very nice atmosphere, great place to people watch. Lots to choose from, though at times they run out of least expensive items only to replace them periodically throughout the day. I believe they do this to get you to buy the more expensive treats. Speaking of expensive!! Prices have consistently... More

Like most people I was really excited the first couple of times I went here. It is kitschy and eclectic and the big case of pastries and other sweet goodies was tantalizing. However, now it is so popular the line can literally be an hour long at all times of the day and night. It is too crowded to find... More

With a small gathering of good friends, we enjoyed a light lunch complete with a complimentary Birthday Eclair for the Birthday gal. Trendy, coffee house feel with some there for small business meetings, some for a large table gathering.
