Transit: Cafe Amelie is accessible by the RTA’s redline streetcars that run along the river; the nearest stop is Dumaine Street, then Cafe Amelie is a short 4-block walk from the river.
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.

“Great atmosphere, mixed quality of food, rather pricey”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We went to Café Amelie in the evening and sat inside due to the temperature. CThe interior was warm and inviting. We were told that we had a one hour time limit since we didn't have reservation. We agreed to that stipulation. We ordered immediately but waited 35 minutes before anything was served. That left us with 25 minutes to eat and pay a bill of $160+ for four people to eat better than average food.

“Great patio dining”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

The rain stopped on Sunday afternoon and the patio was dry by the time we stopped in for dinner. I'm glad we did. The food and cocktails were great. Portion sizes were very generous for all size plates and we left more than satisfied. Our server was amazingly sweet and great with recommendations. It's the perfect place to go on a comfortable spring, or Mardi Gras, evening.

“Great cocktails!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Never eaten here but the food always looks good. If you are wandering round the French Quarter and fancy a cocktail, this is the place to go! Nice bar or even better outside courtyard seating. Bar staff always friendly and know what they are doing.

“NOLA Ambience”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Cafe Amelie delivers good food and service in a setting that really makes you understand that you are in New Orleans. It offers both courtyard and indoor dining, and the menu includes NO favorites and good, fresh food selections. The garden tables are magical after dark with lovely lighting.

“Warm Atmosphere - Great Food”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

On a cold day in NOLA we found this Cafe to be a busy and pleasant retreat. The Cafe is noted for its outdoor garden dining but the indoors was all that was inviting when we sought out our lunch. The menu is limited then but not in interest although we wanted something light. My wife ordered a tea and I had a beer. We opted for the BLT and a Muffaletta. These were served on fresh cibatta rolls. The seasonings were excellent - even on a BLT. Service was quick and cordial. We will try it again in the warm weather.
