Amélie’s Bakery opening location uptown, Amélie’s Exprès
Posted on 6 Aug 2010 by Justin Ruckman
Amélie’s French Bakery just signed the lease on a new location uptown, at the base of 330 S. Tryon (or as you might know it, right below the big “Charlotte Chamber” sign).
They’ll be serving pre-packaged sandwiches and salads, select pastries, and of course, coffee, tea, etc.
They won’t be strictly 24/7, instead saying they’ll have “event-driven hours”, in other words, staying open if people are there.
I ran uptown to scope out the location, and happened to find owner Lynn St. Laurent, who said she had been there since 6am. She showed me inside and let me take some video to share here.
Lynn says they’re aiming to open on September 1st, though it might be sooner.
Thanks to @UD400, who tipped us off on the location through Twitter.
