Easy access from freeway. Good breakfast options and yummy pastries. Love to start the day here! Sitting is small area so you might have to wait for a table.

The only place on Iowa that makes good croissants! I also love their cakes! Try the Neapolitan. You will not be disappointed!

The best French pastries in Iowa! I stop here at least once a month and pick up breakfast for my coworkers. Spend the extra money and deliver La Mie instead of the same ol Panera bagels :)

This is a treasure for Des Moines. The handmade pastries are as good as some I’ve had in Paris. Breakfast and lunch items are crafted creatively and are oh so healthy. I love this little place nestled in the Roosevelt Shopping Center.
