I feel very fortunate to be within walking distance of this lovely bakery. La Mie is a place that I visit regularly, whether on my own, with my fiancé, or to meet up with friends. It's a counter service place that offers omelets, sandwiches and soups in addition to an array of pastries and desserts. I typically go for the... More

I was very excited to have a French bakery in town, especially after visiting Paris for my 21st birthday a few years ago and have craved fresh croissants ever since. My mother and I went for a girls day out but after being told multiple times that whatever we ordered they were out of, we finally found an item they... More

Although this bakery is always busy, it has a wonderful atmosphere! The food is delicious . . . all kinds of pastries to choose from. We stopped here several times in December of 2016.

Breakfast offers tons of great options both healthy and unhealthy. Also the table of baked goods is intoxicating. Great local spot to meet friends or family, just beware seating can be hard to find so be patient.

Always busy and there's a reason for it. Great food and coffee. The service is always wonderful. I wish I went more often.

La Mie is my wife's favorite place for a lunch date. What more is there to say? The only problem? It is everyone's top place for a special lunch date - the place is always packed. Be strategic in the timing of your arrival but by all means, visit La Mie for lunch or for morning pastries and coffee. One... More

Had the salmon tartine the first day....OMG so good. Had the ham and cheddar scramble the second day...Ditto. Had the broccoli and mushroom quiche the third day...Ditto. Took home a loaf of sliced ciabatta. Can't wait to make some sandwiches. Interesting business model. All based on getting you the best food possible. No table until you order at the counter....

La Mie never disappoints. Their baked goods are made fresh every morning. Make sure to get there early if you want your pick of pastry. They also have other baked goods, such as bread or cookies. The lunches are tasty too. Go for a sandwich and soup with a cookie, you won't be sad. My personal favorite meal is the... More

Stopped in for lunch one busy summer day as La Mie had been highly recommended by the nearby businesses I had been to earlier. Apparently, they are all regulars and with good reason. The food was very good as was easily attested to not only from tasting but also from the constant line at the counter. No problem as the... More
