Patisseria Amie...two thumbs up!

MOM...You've got to try this place....(I always listen to my daughter!)...

Becky and I decided to do it up right and have lunch at Patisseria Amie...

in Traverse city...Oh my! a delightful FRENCH surprise ...

Becky's hot Chocolate!...

A delicious apple crepe with REAL whipped cream...MMmmmmm.

A gorgeous omelette with NO...{not white chocolate shavings}, although that was my first guess!...Gruyere Cheese....just as good.

NO photos of the Beignets....we ate them before we remembered to shoot.

Do we feel QUILTY ?

Not one lip-smackin bit!

All photos per Becky's phone!... need to remember my camera wherever I roam .

Will be coming back soon...for the menu and to brush up on our French for Paris !

Have fun and eat well ...


  1. Becky's phone takes really good pictures, it all looks fantastic !

  2. Mmm! Great photos! I still have yet to learn how to use my phone camera. It would make a handy back up. Looks like my kind of restaurant. Love Traverse City!

  3. Oh my goodness that looks fantastic! It makes me want to hop in the car for a not so quick road trip:>)

  4. Hi Kathy,
    My thoughts exactly, her phone takes great pictures.
    The food looks yummy and I'm glad that you had a good time. Wish I were going to Paris.

  6. Thank You, Mom! It was a great day!

  7. With a little editing...even phone photos look appealing...
    If ever in Traverse...We recommend a stop here.

  8. Wow-this place does look like the next best thing to actually being in Paris. Time spent with daughters is so precious. I'm glad you had this day.
    Thinking of you.

  9. Sounds perfectly divine!!!! I'm so glad you had such a great time & shared it with US! Have a wonderful weekend! Charlene

  10. Oh...the food looks just delicious. And I love Traverse City...a long way from Southern Michigan but well worth trip. I will keep my eye out for Patisseria Amietwo! And a trip to Paris, Ooh la la!


  11. I didn't realize Traverse City had a French restaurant. That is probably my favorite kind of food. And, don't laugh, but one of the best French meals I have ever had was at Walt Disney World in the little upstairs The Bistro in Epcot Love the hot chocolate presentation. Hugs- Diana

  12. Hello Kathy!!
    I am so jealous you got to go to Traverse!! I miss home so much this year.
    Where is this restaurant? I don't recall it, is it new? The food does look yummy!!!

    Thank you for sharing the pictures and it gave my heart a skip to even hear about T.C.


  13. Absolutely delicious looking! And in Traverse City no less!

  14. Suzann...It is located off 8th st. on Lake Ave.
    Right by the Loading Docks.
    I know you would enjoy it, Hopefully a trip in your near future!
    Hugs, Kathy

  23. Ummm ummm! Looks so good, Kathy! I haven't been to Traverse City in more years than I can count. I always loved it there. Say hello to my home state of Michigan for me!

    Stay warm!

  27. Wow!!! Amazingly delish! Xoxoxo

  28. Monique...You would have loved this place...
    No Aperture on a droid phone...just the standard 5 mega pixals on a phone camera.
    It's all in the editing I think.
    I used Picnic for that,

    Today Traverse is all over the news...there was a Murder/homicide today downtown early afternoon.
    Not far from where we ate...You just never know.
    Very unusual for Traverse.

  29. Great photos, for a phone! Thanks for sharing such delectable looking items, makes me want to go looking for recipes to try, and I am not a Kitchen Diva!

  30. Oh my gosh.
    Everything looks amazing!
    What a great day you had-

    White Spray Paint

  31. Ooh...this so looks yummy. What beautiful photos...
    Have yourself a wonderful weekend.

  32. What you had looked amazing. Kat and I talked about it and we believe this is one of the places we ate when we were in Traverse City this summer. The hot chocolate was what looked familiar...and the apple crepe. I thoroughly enjoyed our eating stops when we were somewhere up north.

  33. I am licking my lips~ Yum.
    another friday's favorite :-)

  34. Oh my yumminess! Who knew the French had invaded Traverse City. I'll have to let my famiy know ~ they are at our family cottage in Gaylord this weekend.


  35. Hi Kathy,
    Just dropping by to see how you are. I am praying for you!
    This place looks great. I would have to try it all!!
    Have a good week!
