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. Keep in mind during rainy/cold days we may utilize our upstairs Blue Room. There is no elevator access. If you have a preference, let us know when making your reservation.
We normally allow reservation space for only 50% of the dining room to accommodate walk-ins.
Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal Street in the French Quarter, Café Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting.
Café Amelie and the accompanying Princess of Monaco Courtyard are also available for private parties, weddings and receptions.
There is an $8.00 per person charge for all desserts served that are not from our kitchens.
Our space can accommodate groups up to 22 guests for a semi-private courtyard (outdoors) event or carriage house (indoors) event. Assume that the weather will be spectacular, but in case not, you'll be guaranteed a table in our indoor dining space. Please visit www.cafeamelie.com for specific information on hosting a private event.
Please keep in mind that our Blue Room is up a flight of stairs when booking a reservation
