Good Food & Great Prices

I had the opportunity to try the delicious food at this bakery that is more than a bakery. My friend and I asked how to pronounce, La Mie. The waitress said, La "Me". She also explained that Des Moines has a smaller one down town but it is only for carry-out. If breakfast is your food, they carry... read more

We were in Des Moines for the weekend and met our nephew Altoona and niece and boyfriend from Cincinnati at La Mie for Saturday brunch. First the food. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their selections. After eating my omelet I tried a bite of my pastry. It was excellent and needed to be finished. My wife planned on taking hers out to... More

La Mie was recommended by one of the staff members at Salisbury House. We are glad we took her recommendation. Located in a small strip mall, La Mie is easy to pass by. It reminded me of a French Bakery I visited in Brest, France many years ago. Order from their sandwich menu and you will be treated to meat... More

Ventured to their new location down town on Locust Avenue. They have the best Salads for lunch and a choice of bread sticks Everything is so fresh and presented nicely. They also have a nice selection of deserts, which I LOVE their Macaroons, yummm!

We spent a weekend in Des Moines since this little bakery has such great reviews we decided to try it for lunch. The place was packed. A lot of the reviewers mentioned this, so I had planned to scope out a place to sit while the rest of my party waited in line, but the other people in my group... More

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
