An Afternoon at Amelies | Park Rd.

There are so many new and exciting things coming to the Park Road Shopping Center, especially for those who love exploring the ever growing food scene here in Charlotte and this past weekend Amelie’s opened up their brand new location.

Since we knew how busy the bakery/cafe would be on their first weekend, we decided to make it part of our Art Crawl this past Saturday. Of course when we arrived, we could see that quite a few other Charlotteans had had the same idea as we had, as the cafe was already filled with food lovers and francophiles looking to grab a bite for lunch and perhaps snag a delicious pastry or two.

 

 

One of the things that I love about Amelie’s, is all of the chandeliers and this location has chandeliers galore.

 

 

Once we’d placed our order, we headed to find a seat… There are several options to pick from, from the main dining area, the ‘upstairs’ seating area, and when the weather is night there is a large patio outside with the plenty of tables to pick from. Saturday’s weather was particularly delicious, but it could still be a bit toasty in the sun, so we opted to sit inside for this visit. Looking forward to dining outside once Fall arrives… only a few months left to go and it literally cannot come soon enough.

 

Tarts for later…
If you’d rather not sit at a table, there are plenty of comfy chairs around to curl up in.
I absolutely love their chicken salad with whole mustard seeds. So delicious.
The Apricot Tart is too delicious for words.

I enjoyed checking out this location, and I look forward to checking out their uptown CLT location as well.
