Our friends brought us here during our visit, and we are in love with this cute humble bakery!! Everything we have tried so far is amazing - croissants, cheesecake, and the best carrot cake. Gave in to temptation and also bought a chocolate chip cookie and lemon blueberry scone too for the road trip home. Cant imagine that there is a better place in Charlotte!
After reading the rave reviews I was hoping for much better! I had the Italian wedding cake. The cake was dry and the icing was too sweet. The pistachio cheesecake was better. The iced coffee was basically coffee flavored water. Wasn't impressed enough to go back.

So charming with so many pastry options. Coffee wasnt anything to run home about. But we always have a pleasant experience here. And staff is friendly. Location offers ample parking too. Lobster tail is an indulgent must-try!
Tonight 9/25, when our party arrived, the employee that was working was less than thrilled to help us. Two members of our party were asked to leave because of the city wide mask mandate and they didnt have masks. They promptly exited the building after being denied a mask after asking for one. With covid restrictions and the mask mandate in place there were 8 other people inside, in line, behind us. She took her sweet time getting to us to serve us our pastries and acted like it was a huge inconvenience for her to have to help us. We waited outside after making our purchases and noticed once the line was helped inside she removed her mask and had it hanging on her ear. So patrons of the establishment are refused service for not having a mask, but the employees making and serving the food dont have to wear one unless there are patrons in the store? Seems a little hypocritical to me The store also already had their open sign off and their hours are posted to be open for another 25 minutes at the time we arrived. Not a great first experience after having people talk so highly about it. More than likely will not be returning. Only gave two stars because I havent tried the pastries yet as Im still heated and upset about the entire occurrence.
Coffee is great, wonderful biscuits, my dad adores the carrot cake. I get the flour less chocolate cake and tiramisu as my standard here but the cheesecake is phenomenal. They have a great selection of macaroons. A real gem of a shop, beats Amelie's hands down. There are at least 3 parks within a mile to dine outside at during nice weather. I love this place!!!
