“Sweet Macaroon this bakery is good.”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I should start off by saying I don't care for macaroons, but this place has changed my mind. So much so, that I am now going to start using sweet macaroon like some people use sweet Jesus. My wife said they were the best she has ever had. I would highly recommend the napoleon, as that was my favorite. Check this place out if you are in Charlotte. Even if you don't have time to dine in, it's worth stopping by to pick up treats to go.

“Yum!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

My daughter and l went to Amelie's as a treat for doing a 5k together. She had been before to the one on Tryon so already knew she wanted the macaroons, and she got 2 of those and a strawberry rose lemonade. I got one macaroon and a chocolate mousse cup (amazing!) and a lavender lemonade. The sweet treats were wonderful but the lemonade was really tart! The bill was $17, which l thought was a bit steep, but this was a treat so l didn't let it bother me. The atmosphere inside is really unique, a feast for the eyes. We sat outside at one of the tables. It was a nice experience, not somewhere l will go often, but will go back.

“Gluten-Free and wonderful”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

How great to find a bakery with excellent pastries, breakfasts, & lunches with gluten-free options. Yes, most of what they serve has wheat in it, but they have coconut macaroons, almond tea cakes, chocolate mousse cups, and more for anyone eating gluten-free. Any of their sandwiches can be ordered on gluten-free bread.
And their coffee is great. Full-bodied, but never bitter. And decaf is available all the time, which I really appreciate. If you want a mocha latte or other specialty drink, they can make that as well.
Finally, I love the quirky artwork at Amelie's. A chandelier made from pots & pans, chairs marked with the names of French royalty, lots of altered art based on the Mona Lisa, and more. Very creative and fun!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Absolutely the best French Macaroons I have ever had! You must stop at one of their 4 locations, from their desserts to bread and fresh made pastries this is a must have anytime we go to Charlotte!
