Well hello! Back again with a smorgasbord of stuff I’ve eaten (and drank) lately. Part I was so fun to compile, so let’s get to it again. Just a reminder to follow me over on Instagram for daily eats and drinks. Here we go… Anddd that’s just a TASTE of it.
It’s hard not to be in love with Amelie’s French Bakery. I can’t get enough of their beautiful pastries, savory breakfast sandwiches, and tasty coffee concoctions. A Charlotte staple for twelve years, Amelie’s can be found in all parts of Charlotte: NoDa (original location), Park Road, Carmel Commons, and Uptown (Bonus!
