We have eaten here several times driving through Iowa - so, in a nutshell, the taste treats are worth a special stop! Lunch plates are good, and of course, the baked goods can be fantastic. Took home two dozen croissants one time, should of gotten three.... However, at lunch time the wait is long, as many have commented, and the... More

We finally got into the place for a late breakfast, and it was worth it! The food was delicious and the treats, even better. It is always busy but it is worth the wait and conditions. The seating isn't great, and the place is fairly small, so it may be better to order and take it home or to your... More

I have visited La Mie three times now for lunch, and I must say it is my new favorite. My son loves it because you order at the counter and it's fast. My husband, Mom and friends all love the food (I agree!). The service is also terrific. Even though you order at the counter, when you are eating there... More

If a lil' taste of France is what you are seeking then it is right here in Des Moines, Iowa, at La Mie. The pastries are scrumptious! You will want to eat more than one--or if you are like me at least 3 or 4. And, it won't break the bank. ( I even got a ox to go.) Most... More

La Mie can rarely do wrong. The breakfast and lunch are almost to perfection...even the patio on a fall day reminds you of a quaint little Parisian boulangerie. I can honestly say that I have never had a meal there I didn't like...and I am known to leave with a box that has a key lime tart, lemon tart and... More

I have heard about La Mie from my family who lives in Iowa, so when I visited them in November, the first place they took me right after picking me up from the airport was La Mie. I enjoyed the "healthier" breakfast menu (picture attached). And my niece totally loved the pastries. It is a great place to get together... More

This small and inviting bakery is the one of the greatest things in town! You are greeted by large marble tables completely covered in pastries. They have the best laminated dough! You will find an assortment of pastries, desserts, fresh baked bread , sandwiches, and breakfast food. We particularly like the Pecan Caramel Rolls, with a nice Omelet breakfast and... More

I knew when I walked in that La Mie had to be an excellent place to go! The place was PACKED! While in line to order, I had to pick several pastries to bring home for my daughter...she loved them. I would have to say, if you have a bit of time and are not in a rush....this is an... More

My wife had been wishing to visit this restaurant for quite some time. It is more like a deli or fast food restaurant in that one places an order at a walk-up counter and is given a number to take to one's table. We both had the chicken salad sandwich. It was excellent. The place is a bit noisy, or... More
