The Café des 2 Moulin (15 Rue Lepic)
Minus the tobacco shop, Amelie’s place of work remains just as it was in the film. Unfortunately boasting none of the eccentric staff in the film, it does however serve up Amelie’s world famous crémé brulée.

Maison Collignon (56 Rue des Trois Freres)
Known locally as Chez Ali, after its owner, Ali still has the signs from the film on display. Chez Ali was featured heavily in the film and also the location of Amelie’s Montmartre apartment over the store. Today he sells copious amounts of Amelie souvenirs alongside his fruit and veg.
