What Others Are Saying

I'm trying Ethiopian food for the first time! It's didn't appear that much, but once you start eating, you realize how much you're eating. The customer service was excellent, and the food was excellent. Looking forward to trying vegetarian food next. I was recommended to try the chickpeas as my side, which was a good choice, and had the beef tips in gravy with their bread. To taste the flavors, you must eat with your fingers. I felt like a kid again. The entire experience was amazing!

What Others Are Saying

We had a great time at Amelie's! It was very good food and the treats were delicious. We were very pleased with the speed of the service (a bit of a wait for our food, but there was a pretty long line when we arrived). My review was only based on a few reasons: I felt the menu for the sandwiches and sides were a bit unclear regarding the combo. Also, when we got outside, our chips were not in the bag; thankfully, we were eating there and were able to get them back. It was delicious to have turkey and brie sandwiches. Neither of us liked the drinks much, but it was probably more our taste preferences than poor quality. Chocolate eclair and salted caramel brownie were both delicious.

What Others Are Saying

Customer service is terrible! The staff was not friendly at all, and the cashier was very rude. While taking my order, she looked and sounded so annoyed. After my order was ready, it was left on the counter; I assumed it belonged to me, so I had to go ask. I liked the coffee here, but I didn't like the service.

What Others Are Saying

Apparently, the place has been renamed. Just reopened after a COVID shutdown. Takeout available. This is my first time here. I wanted a Latte Mew, so the owner custom-made one for me. I hadn't had such a good cup of coffee in a long time. It did not taste dark or burnt like some big companies' products. Because the coffee here tastes like what coffee should taste like, I decided to write a review.
