We stopped here for lunch as we were headed back to Wisconsin. The service was friendly and fast. Even though it was packed we found a small table. Our sandwiches were brought to our table quickly. This place is a good place to have a quick and delicious meal.

Love the food at La Mie. Everything I have every had there is delicious. The place is noisy and can get very crowded. If it's busy, snag a spot to sit at before you order your food. I prefer to visit when the weather is nice and I can sit outside. Inside, I'm not inclined to linger which is probably... More

Many friends and family of mine seem to love this restaurant/bakery. I would have to give it a less than stellar review. First of all, there is not nearly enough seating. It is a very uncomfortable environment as at lunch people are stalking tables to open up and you feel you can't just relax and eat. Also the seating is... More

I arrived too late for a meal so I purchased bakery items to take home. The cinnamon raisin bread was very good and the girl even offered to cut it for me. Next time I will arrive earlier.

when we were here the place was packed and I can see why. Great food and friendly service. They offer a variety of sandwiches and quiches plus a wide variety of bakery items. Due to the popularity it is hard to find a seat or a parking place. Come in the off hour or have one of your party scout... More

Want fresh? Want delicious? Want it right? La Mie is your place. I loathe to write from experience in 79 countries for comparison, but from the perspective of having traveled to 79 countries, La Mie is a gem and a place you should visit. Fresh, right, and delicious.

We have been to La Mie dozens of times, maybe even a hundred! They have great breakfasts, including tartines, salmon omelets, eggs with spinach, French Toast with berries, and lots of other things. But of course what everyone raves about is the pastries! To die for croissants and many, many other things all laid out for you to grab and... More

A french bakery in the midwest , especially a very good one, is somewhat of a rarity. La Mie has a large HI QUALITY selection of beautiful pastries that are every bit a good as they look. Serving omelets as well as pastries La Mie is a great breakfast location for eat in or take with. A croissant that is... More

We visited while in town for a wedding, the food is hands down the best breakfast I've ever had. The pastries were fresh and the menu unique. The tartine was wonderful Simply nothing like it!

We went there only for breakfasts which were great... what a choice! But we also saw the lines of people waiting to be served... and other local cafes were empty! That says something
