CATERING

Are paper products included with catering?

All catering packages include paper products. However, À la carte platters do not have paper products—if requested, they can be added for an incremental charge of $1 per person.

How much notice do I need to give to place a catering order?

We require 48 hours' notice for most catering requests. Please note that we can book up and have limited availability. All menu items are due one week before private events in-house.

Does Amelie’s rent outside equipment for off-site catering events?

No -- all catering orders will be on disposable platters with coffee boxes and gallon jugs.

In-house events

How do I order catering or learn more about events?
Are we permitted to bring in a cake, cupcakes, or candy?

No. We offer a large selection of composed cakes and petit gateaux in-house for any style event. https://www.ameliesfrenchbakery.com/cakes

I only need event space. Can I bring food in from outside?

We’re sorry, but we require a $250 minimum food purchase for all in-house events at our NoDa & Rock Hill locations and a $300 minimum for all in-house events at the Uptown location. No outside food is permitted in the bakeries. So think about how much time you’ll save when you let us do the cooking!

What does the room rental include?

Your room rental will include using the room for your event 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after for the setup and clean-up. Buffet linens, plates, silverware, serving utensils, tables, and chairs. Room rental does not include food and beverage costs.

How much notice do I need to give to reserve event space?

We grant event space on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner, the better! Event bookings will require the total room rental cost when booking to secure your reservation. We can only sometimes guarantee the event space if the date is under a week away. We start booking events 3-4 months in advance.

How many people can your event space accommodate?

Our event venues vary from a capacity of 10 to 60+ people, depending on the location. For your safety, each room has an occupancy maximum.

When are my menu selections due?

Your menu selections are due one week before your event. Your estimated headcount will be owing then as well. All final menu changes, headcount, and payment are due 72 hours prior.

Are the room rentals refundable for any reason?

All room rentals are non-refundable except in the rare case of a bakery error or if we need to cancel your event for any reason. If we cancel an event, Amelie’s will refund all deposits and fees paid unless, except for services already rendered.

Is there a gratuity charge?

Your final bill will include a standard 20% gratuity for all in-house events on your food and beverage total.

What is the latest possible time to make changes to my event?

We know things change and will do everything possible to accommodate them. However, to serve you best, we ask that all changes to your menu, headcount, or any other aspect be made three days before the event. If any changes occur after 72 hours, you will be responsible for all charges billed based on the most recent agreement or communication with Amélie’s event coordinator.Amélie’s event management team member must authorize any changes. Other staff members are not responsible for booking, approving changes, or contacting clients regarding events.

Do you provide linens for the tables in the private event spaces?

We’re sorry, but our tables are unique mix-and-match sizes and cannot accommodate table linen requests. We do, however, provide linens for the food buffets.

Do you provide glassware for wine, champagne, mimosas, or beer?

Glassware for wine, champagne, and mimosas is available. We do not offer beer glasses.

Can we bring in our alcohol?

The Noda and Uptown locations offer various beer, wine & mimosa options. Please ask for our Beer and wine menu. Glassware is included with the purchase.You can only bring your beer, wine & champagne at the Rock Hill location—no hard liquor. We do charge a corking fee of $5 per bottle. Wine glasses will be available to rent for $0.50 per glass.

How much time do you offer for set-up before the event?

Each host is allotted 30 minutes before the actual event time for setup. There will be an incremental charge if additional setup time is requested (based on availability). If you or your guests arrive earlier than the 30 minutes allotted, please wait in the bakery until your space is ready.

Can you move furniture and chairs in the private event spaces?

The complicated answer is NO. Great care has been given to restoring and refurbishing our eclectic furnishings. So that we may preserve and protect them, our policy doesn’t allow the furniture to be moved. Any damage to the table or chairs in our space will be charged to the event host.

Does Amélie’s provide plates and flatware for all in-house events?

We are happy to provide plates (mix-and-match) and flatware. In addition, beverages will be served in plastic cups for all cold drinks and paper cups for all hot beverages.

Can we bring in decorations for our event?

Flowers and decorations are allowed, but no glitter, balloons with glitter, or confetti. A $50 cleaning fee for glitter or confetti. No open flames or outside music. Nothing can be hung from walls or ceilings. Outside music is not permitted in the bakeries.
