A cafe and bakery just off the Georgia Tech campus has closed for good.
Amelie’s French Bakery, located at 840 Marietta St. NW in West Midtown, closed this week after seven years.
A statement on the restaurant’s website addressed the closure, which it said was due to coronavirus-related financial issues.
Unfortunately we have had to permanently close our Atlanta location. Like many other restaurants we have felt and are continuing to feel the devastation of COVID-19 and made the incredibly hard decision to close our doors in Atlanta. Thank you to the community of Atlanta for welcoming us and allowing us to serve you for 7 years.
North Carolina-based Amelie’s, which opened its first location in 2007, has four locations in North Carolina and one in South Carolina.
The restaurant featured a variety of pastries, macarons, soups, salads and sandwiches with a “Parisian shabby-chic ambiance.”
Amelie’s is the latest food and beverage concept casualty due to the coronavirus economic impact. Other recent closures include Dantanna’s in downtown Atlanta and Mother Bar + Kitchen in Old Fourth Ward.
A representative for Amelie’s was not immediately available for comment.
