Well, hello there!

If you’ve landed here, you must want to know more about Amélie’s!? If so, we’re flattered! If not, feel free to hang out a while.

Amélie’s was born in 2007 from a collaboration of three certifiable foodies who love what the French brought to the world of French cooking. The emerging NoDa neighborhood in East Charlotte seemed the ideal location for made-from-scratch, French-inspired café offerings, both sweet and savory. Providing free WiFi and a comfortable, roomy gathering place, our NoDa location soon accommodated customers by tossing the keys and remaining open 24/7/365. The finishing touch came when partner Brenda Knight Ische created the whimsical ambiance using mostly repurposed items. 

While we’re known for our salted caramel brownies and array of French macaron flavors, we also take pride in our soups like our Spinach Asparagus Leek soup, available year-round; sandwiches like our Croque Monsieur; seasonal salads; and our coffee, tea and specialty beverage offerings


Today, Amélie’s has five locations in the Charlotte area and one in Atlanta. Decidedly not a chain, each bakery has its own personality and aura that is unlike any of its sister stores! These unique personalities are organically created by the communities that call Amélie’s their own.


Amélie's Story


In addition, we love customizing orders for our customers. From our select catering and event menu to preparing our made-to-order specialty cakes—we recognize that our guests have invested considerable thought and emotion into deciding what they want in a cake or event. For that reason, we invest great care in delivering exactly what they imagine. This is serious business, and we take it personally.
