had to be hospitalized after eating here – My wife ate a vanilla gelato from Amelia's that was tainted with peanuts. She had to be rushed the to the ER. The owners wouldn't return our phone calls, and their insurance companies told us that Amelia's policy on food sanitation is to do the bare minimum required by law and no more. We had to spend our Christmas fund on our out-of-pocket expenses, all because one of their employees didn't rinse the ice cream scoop (and because their owners are heartless one-percenters).
I don't know what's worse--the sloppy food handling or the owners' "screw you" attitude. Buyer beware!
worst service ever – total disapointment, we order two cakes and they never arrived then the service at chamas was terrible, we were celebrating a special occasion (my nephew' communion) , the worst part about it is that they never made up for it.
Uncommonly good service – I have enjoyed the pastries at Amelia. The staff is very polite and like to talk about their confections. When the weather is nice, nothing is better than enjoying their coffee out in the Brighleaf courtyard.
User review by gourmetgirl86 – I was hoping for more, disappointed in the quality of the espresso and food. Common.
