Crazy good salads & tartines

How on earth do they make their balsamic taste so good??? OK, yes, I know it's a bakery, & the normal thing to do would be to rave about their pastries. But those salads & tartines! I love a healthy lunch that still feels indulgent. The hummus tartine and side salad could be my favorite lunch... read more

This is a lively place for sandwiches, soups,quiches and desserts. The bakery offers many french inspired fresh baked breads and desserts to eat as well as to take home. This is always a stop for me when I am in the neighborhood or have out of town guests that are looking for something unique. Although there is plenty of seating... More

Whenever we are in Des Moines with family or friends a must is La Mie. They have an amazing display of breads and desserts, but my favorite is their healthy menu displayed on the wall behind the counter. I look forward to their omelets with asparagus.

Great coffee,wonderful bakery goods, comfy atmosphere, friendly staff. It's a small bakery/coffee shop that has a wide range of customers, casual atmosphere, and great food- bakery goods, light dining, homemade bread,variety of coffees. If you need to tarry awhile, they check on you for refills. Can't be beat.

A quirky french style place with nice food. We dined here for breakfast on a weekday morning. It was very busy and is clearly a popular place. I think the decor could do with a little revamp though. There were rows of delicious looking pastries of all types lined up on a table and hot food options to order at... More

We went there for our anniversary in 2008. The waitress botched the whole meal then brought dessert and didn't return for 20 minutes to see that she didn't leave us any forks to eat it with. We never returned after that.
