CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte’s beloved French bakery, Amélie’s, is set to move its NoDa flagship location by spring of 2022.
Officials with the bakery say they have already signed the lease to the new location just 1.2 miles away on East 36th Street (from its original NoDa location on N. Davidson Street).
The 7,000 square foot space will feature Amelie’s eccentric and quirky decor along with some new layout features including a patio area and an open kitchen to allow guests to see how their favorite treats are made.
Amélie’s team originally began construction on this new location prior to the pandemic, but with the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainty it brought, both Amélie’s and the landlord decided to stop construction and cancel the lease.
Amélie’s team says now that things are slowly getting back to normal they are eager to push forward with their original plans.
“Like many businesses in the hospitality industry, we were forced to change our plans and focus on getting through these difficult times. We have always loved this location and are thrilled to be restarting this project.” said Frank Reed, CEO and Co-Owner. “We are very fortunate to have Aston Properties as our landlord and very grateful for their flexibility and vision to stick with us. Our existing NoDa location is what started everything for Amélie’s and we’re happy to continue to strengthen our relationship with the community with this move.”
Guests can still expect the same handmade delicacies, French pastries, coffee, build-your-own breakfast sandwiches, soups, salads, and more at the new Amélie’s location coming this spring.
