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

Great place for breakfast and pick out your favorite breakfast tasty treats. Set in kind of a modern decor but they know how to bake!

Looking from the outside you wouldn't know Lamie Bakery is a gem in Des Moines. Not too far away from the airport it's a must for breakfast or brunch. Nice cafe atmosphere with fresh baked parties displayed on a somewhat baked goods bar. Very nice modern atmosphere with great food for a great price. Went here twice during my stay... More

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
