There’s nothing like walking into a bakery and smelling fresh bread and pastries. Or those decadent desserts. The experts over at Southern Living recently named what they believe is the best bakery in North Carolina, and it’s right here in Charlotte. It’s one that gets a lot of hype, but it also lives up to that hype. It’s Amelie’s!
Amelie’s French Bakery & Cafe opened its first location in NoDa in 2008. Since then it’s become a staple in the Charlotte community. According to Amelie’s website, “From day one we have approached every decision with intention, purpose, and whimsy – from the recipes we create to the spaces we curate. We want ours to be a place of community, comfort and nourishment.” They certainly do just that.
I absolutely love French bakeries, and at the top of my list are macarons. And Amelie’s makes some delicious ones! Other items on the menu include a variety of French pastries, sandwiches, soups, and salads, as well as coffees. Amelie’s is certainly one of my favorites so I agree with Southern Living’s choice naming it the best bakery in North Carolina!
