Cafe Amelie Restaurant Review

: Visitors walking along Royal Street literally stop in their tracks when they pass the open gate leading to Café Amelie’s lush courtyard dining area. An assortment of small plates includes a stand-out crab cake, and there are generously portioned sandwiches for lunch. Our favorite is the cochon de lait on ciabatta bread. At dinner, the small-plates offerings are expanded, as are the entrées, which include a slow-cooked lamb shank. Desserts are tempting, especially the nine-layer lemon blueberry doberge cake, a local tradition. The inviting bar is a relaxing place in the French Quarter to enjoy one of the restaurant’s wines by the glass from a nicely balanced and well-maintained international list. Children get special attention with tables and chairs appropriately sized for them, but no highchairs are available.
