Great New Orleans atmosphere. Relaxed lunch under the trees outdoors in the beautiful courtyard. Pretty fountain and foliage. Great salads and appetizers - we didn't do the heavy dining options or drinks but a great experience.

Beautiful courtyard for Sunday brunch. French onion soup, shrimp & grits, along with strawberry-infused mimosas. All were delicious. Josh, our server, was great! People were in line at 10:30 for 11:00 opening.

Sat down and waited a half an hour before walking out. We were sat at a table in the center of the room, passed by countless servers, but no one stopped to take our order. Even after we attempted to get their attention.

Charming courtyard garden with lovely rustic restaurant. Exquisite Baked Oysters and French Toast. On a rainy day it was cosy spot.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

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.
