Café Amelie information
We’ve waxed rhapsodic over the Quarter’s beautiful backyard gardens, but Amelie’s takes the cake. This may be the most romantic dining spot in the city, an alfresco restaurant that’s practically as cute as the movie of the same name, tucked behind an old carriage house and surrounded by high brick walls and lush shade trees.

Lunch is lovely, when you can nibble sandwiches amid the green, but an evening dinner under starlight while feasting on shrimp and mushroom linguine is just as magic.
