I have been here to get pastries and bread to go and everything has been delicious. I have also been for brunch and it is fairly quick. This place is ALWAYS busy for a reason!

The food is good but it is always too Crowded. The pastries are well loved by the locals and the bread is good. Get there early if you want a seat.

Stopped on a sat for lunch and place was packed. Not fair that they snake the purchase line around the bakery so of course had to buy some. Line was quick even though it was long. Sandwich was pre made so was concerned but was still very good and mayo had not made bread soggy. Only thing they could have... More

This favorite Des Moines eating spot is in the neighborhood where I grew up, in the Roosevelt Shopping Center. The bread, baked on the premises, is outstanding. Lunch includes sandwiches and soups. Expect to see some of Des Moines's elite eating there. There is free parking all around the shopping center.

It's tough to get a seat for breakfast on the weekends, but worth the effort. Menu provides unique options over standard breakfast fare. Pastries are delicious - and positioned to tempt you as you wait.

You go to La Mie Bakery for the pastries, lunch and atmosphere. Sometimes so busy you can hardly move, but you don't care because you have to have one of those perfect pastries. I walk to the cafe nearly every week, and have done for years. My reward never disappoints.
