The NODA Arts District of Charlotte has many quirky restaurants, craft breweries and live music venues…and of course after you have been at 1 or more of those for a few hours the late night grumblies might hit….no fear! Amelie’s – the 24 hour purveyor of Croissant, sandwiches and macarons is there for your munchie needs. Located in a little low slung – almost cool- strip mall, it has a fenced in patio outside. The fence is home to many padlocks placed there by romantic couples in the tradition of the Pont Des Artes bridge in Paris.
This ain’t Paris but the line ups that exist 24 hours a day are testament to the tasty pastries and funky vibe of the place. Grab a turnover or a salt caramel brownie…and maybe a couple more for breakfast, which after all, is probably only a few hours away anyhow.
