I’m giving 5 stars because I haven’t eaten here, but I just wanted to warn those with celiac disease—the macarons are NOT safe. I called and asked if the gluten free macarons are prepared on/with the same equipment as the gluten containing flavors. They are. It sounds like they’re also displayed right next to each other. Cross contamination galore. I wouldn’t risk it.
Amelie's is everything that a French Bakery should be. The presentation is wonderful, the taste divine! I have had their gluten free items, such as the coconut macaroons. Their tea cakes are also gluten free. Before I was gluten free, I had their chocolate mousse. The large mousse cup lasted for a couple of days, as I budgeted it out. I imagine the mini mousse cup would be just as delicious! All their gluten free items are marked with an * so that you may be aware of what you may like before you arrive.
Had lots of GF options including a large selection of Macaroons! I had a chocolate mousse cup (chocolate cup filled with chocolate mousse and topped with a chocolate covered strawberry) that was very rich and SO good!!! The staff change their gloves when you ask about GF options :)
such a fun place to go. I've enjoyed the salads and soups (just ask what's in it first) and the desserts are always a fave. I mostly get the French macarons (cinnamon and lemon are my favorites), the tea cakes are gf and are so moist and flavorful, and you can't go wrong with a gf salted caramel brownie.
An Amelie's just opened up near me so I wanted to see what it was all about. I wasn't going to have anything because I have celiac disease but the server insisted I would be ok because they bake the GF desserts in a different part of kitchen. Against my better judgement I tried the tea cake. It was ok, nothing special. But now I'm so sorry I didn't listen to my little voice as I am very sick and in a lot of pain. I haven't had a reaction like this in many years. If you have celiac stick to coffee and let your friends enjoy the "GF" pastries.
a NoDa legend. they NEVER close, welcoming first responders and all sorts of folk into their eclectic living room. tons of GF dessert, from the usual custards and macarons to tea cakes, chocolate cups and more. the russian tea is delightful and my friend swears by their coffee.
