A couple of people recommend Cafe Amelie to us, and we are glad we went! We sat out in the lovely courtyard. The food and service were great! Favorites: the creamy shrimp and grits and the gumbo. We definitely return!

I always like to go to Amelie's because it is off the beaten path and is so relaxed. The slow style of enjoying your meal and not rushing is fabulous.

Lovely place to drink coffee in the courtyard. Did not buy any food. Stumbled upon with an out of town friend.

A friend recommended we eat here during our trip to New Orleans, and I'm so glad we did. This was by far one of our favorite meals on our road trip across the country. We made a reservation online and were seated and served immediately....More

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

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

Hello. No, there is no dress code. It's very casual, but you could certainly dress up if you wanted. You wouldn't be out of place either way, casual or dressy. It is just so one of those: 'just relax and be you and do what... More

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.
