    The lavender lemonade is a must have, and the chocolate and raspberry tart is heaven on a plate. If you're in the mood for a heartier meal, the chicken salad sandwich is tasty.

    There is something just perfect about a French Bakery when the temperatures drop outside. So many great things on the menu, but don't leave without trying their salted caramel brownies.

    One of the best places to hang out at Uptown Charlotte for great coffee and great desserts alike. I would highly recommend the macaroons as well as the croissants plus the French Roast coffee.

    EVERYTHING!!!!!! But my top faves are their salted caramel brownie torte, pretty much allllll of the macaroons, the palmier (also the cheapest sweet on the menu), and allllll of the tea cakes.

    The pastries here are to live for! But be prepared for the long line when ordering. The macaroons, mini meringue pies and other pastries will bring tears of joy to your sweet tooth!

    One of the most eclectic places to hangout! Love it. Sit out on the front porch at a table, inside on a comfy couch, or choose the more quiet, green hall in the back.

    The chocolate croissant, salted caramel brownie & palmiers were my usuals. Now I'm really digging both the pistachio & salted caramel macaroons. And the spinach asparagus leek soup is outstanding!!

    There are a lot of gluten free options here. The almond cakes are fluffy and delicious. Also, while the salty caramel brownie is what they are known for, I didn't love it.

    Everything chocolate. They make amazing soups and sandwiches too. I recommend the salted caramel brownie, eclairs, turkey and brie. They even offer valentine's gifts soon :)

    Great place to stop after dinner, or anytime for that matter. I'm a sucker for the chocolate eclairs. Don't let the line scare you, you'll make your way to the counter in no time.

    PLEASE DO NOT FEED OR MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH THE HIPSTERS. Also, no big arm movements (they startle easily). Please enjoy observing them in this simulation of their natural environment.

    This is where you go in Charlotte if a salted caramel brownie craving hits you at 3 a.m. Open 24 hours a day and full of great ambiance and pastries, you might decide this is your permanent residence.

    Stop in on your birthday for a free eclair. Chocolate, or...that other flavor they come in.

    Enjoyed the macaroons. The neopolitan was also very delish. Lattes are also yummy! Not much seating though. Cool music and friendly staff.

    I wasn't finished with my last review, so here's the rest of it: their hot chocolate w/ caramel!! Annnndd, on the non-sweet side, the spinach-asparagus soup and their chicken-salad crossaint sandwich.

    Step into Amelie's French Bakery at any time of the day or night and you will fall victim to a common malady at the destination coffee spot in NoDa: gripping and hypnotic pastry-case paralysis. Read more

    There's three shots of espresso is a small need to add an extra shot (they wont tell you) Though this fact is pretty awesome, I learned the hard way.

    I recommend the macarons, eclairs or apple turnovers. Great coffee and a quiet place to work during the day.

    Got tired of hearing about the salted caramel brownies. Tried it. It was great! But the pecan pie was so much better! Ask them to heat it up

    Amelie's lets you indulge for a special occasion, or even the every day! Their soups, chocolate croissants and Napoleons are my faves. Being open 24 hrs...priceless.

    My first time here with absolutely no line. Pro tip: apparently, 5:30pm on a Wednesday is the magic number. And now, you know.

    Just about everything at Amelie's is amazing! The only down side is their wifi, which isn't very realizable...

    They have THE BEST palmiers. They often run out by lunch time so if you see some in the case, try one. Lots of goodness for 89 cents!

    Pastries delicious. But if you just want coffee and don't want to wait forever, your best bets are Smelly Cat, Common Market or Central Coffee.

    Salted caramel brownie is soooo good. Try their spreadable cheeses with a freshly baked baguette, the spicy smoked gouda & roasted feta was AMAZING

    The spinach asparagus leek soup and chocolate croissants are my top two favorites. If it's busy, don't forget about the atrium!
