I met a friend here for a late lunch specifically so we could sit outside in their wonderful courtyard. The cochon appetizer was fabulous! Can't beat the setting or the service. Just great!

I had a mamosa and gumbo for lunch. Good bartender and tasty, spicey gumbo. Lots of atmosphere: Entering through metal gate into garden with fountain and shrubs. Small downstairs area with bar, tables, large windows to look out onto the garden/fountain. The dining is done in downstairs and upstairs. Good service and savory local dishes. I was impressed and returned... More

We decided to make a reservation last minute. The food and service was amazing. It was too cold to sit in the courtyard the evening we went, but the inside was just as quaint. I highly recommend Cafe Amelie!

We were there mid-week, so no brunch or jazz, which is disappointing. The setting is lovely. The food is good. Nice, quiet place to rest in the middle of the day.

We stumbled upon this gem by accident. The courtyard looks like a residential area until you fully enter. The menu changes and is full of delectable treats.

I went during brunch and I honestly was underwhelmed with the fare. Maybe I'm just spoiled by some incredible brunch spots near me, but it was very not memorable food. The price point that it's at, I would have expected more zing. I wouldn't waste my time going back, which is unfortunate since it is so highly recommended. The atmosphere... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant for lunch. Definitely get reservations as it is a busy place. Outdoor seating in a courtyard was charming but they should get new chairs as they were really uncomfortable. The food was good but nothing outstanding. Recommend.

The outdoor seating here is lovely, with gardens and fountains, making a meal outdoors a charming experience. The soup special was delicious, as were the entrees. However, this restaurant is expensive ($6 for tea?), and not somewhere where we could dine on a regular basis. It's unfortunate, because otherwise we'd consider coming back.

The soup menu is great, spicy and original. Staff is friendly and the place is clean. However, the products are overpriced, especially the coffee. A small cup of tasteless Mocha was $6.00.

We had a quick lunch at Amelie while strolling around the quarter. The garden seating is very charming but we decided to sit inside due to the colder temperature that day. Once we were seated upstairs, it took awhile for the server to come to our table. We ordered their gumbo which was on the saltier side and served lukewarm.... More

Description
Please note that the courtyard is seated on a first come, first serve basis. A reservation does not guarantee seating in the courtyard but we will have a table available inside our beautiful, historic carriage house. We normally allow reservation space for only 50% of the dining room to accommodate walk-ins. Additionally, in order to accommodate all of our guests who are waiting to be seated, we are only able to seat your party once everyone has arrived. Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal Street in the French Quarter, Cafe Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting. Cafe Amelie has a full bar offering an array of signature cocktail creations. Cafe Amelie and the accompanying Princess of Monaco Courtyard are also available for private parties, weddings and receptions.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
