There is this new wave of cafés in Belgrade that we’re so grateful for – you get to experience different styles of interior, different concepts and stories. As far as we can remember, not more than 5 years ago, there weren’t places in town that tried to attract customers by being creative and different. Maybe it’s the hipster culture? 🙂
Amelie cafe is a bar in the heart of Belgrade, very close to Knez Mihailova street. The first thing that crosses your mind when you enter is that every little part of it is authentic. Lemons on each table, little bouquets, baskets with apples and aubergines, granny’s cakes with cherries.
Walls are made of white bricks and on them are old plates that our grandmothers used to collect and put in showcases. On doors and windows we can see lace curtains. Tables are small and look like the ones you see in Paris bistros.
Perhaps the idea of Amelie cafe was to create a little Paris corner in Belgrade, but truth be told, it reminds us more of our granny’s houses made about 50 years ago-and that is so much better than those places trying to copy Paris style!
Coffee in Amelie cafe was amazing, and they serve amazing ice tea in jars, so head there if you wish to enjoy a weekend morning with a friend you haven’t seen in a long time.
