Fresh flavors, and options for everyone. It's a favorite place for out of town guests. I also enjoy being able to purchase their pastries and bread at the Downtown Farmers Market

They were so busy, the line moved so quickly I was surprised to be at the register and ordering a delicious ham and brie baguette with a soup prepared fresh every day. Smooth as silk the entire operation gets you seated and eating in a jiffy....great food guys. Highly recommend breakfast here too....

I have been to La Mie several times with my husband, Sister and niece. This is a really good spot to get a wholesome clean breakfast and pick up your bake goods at the same time. It also offers delicious and huge deli sandwiches. This is a place I plan to frequently visit.

This is just a wonderful bakery with delicious breads and pastries. We have not eaten a meal here, so I cannot comment on that part. But for homemade treats, this is your place!

I love this little bakery. They have delicious, fresh ingredients. Good breakfast quiche and sandwiches. Lots of vegetarian options. It's very crowded on weekends. The baked goods are so beautiful and delicious that we always have to get a few to go. And the creme brûlée is the best I've ever had. We love La Mie!

I grew up in Chicago were neighborhood bakery's were owned by families and baked goods were of the highest quality. Breads, pastries and cakes were magnificent. Pretty much took this quality for granted until I moved to Des Moines. There was nothing like those neighborhood bakeries here with the exception of the Highland Park Bakery until I found La Mie....

We stopped here after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor......it's an easy stop to make even when you are on your way through Des Moines to somewhere else. It's very close to the exchange on 42nd Street and I-235. You can eat in or take it with you to eat in the car. We chose to eat in. There was very... More
