“Always worth a trip”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We visit Des Moines a couple times a year and make time for this restaurant for breakfast. The pastry selections are awesome. You chose from two large tables and then there are other choices of ome let's, French toast, etc, as well. Great place, one of the best in DM. We do try to get there early as it usually is busy.

“Amazing Breakfast, Super busy, but that's good sign of good food.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

We go here every year during our visit to Des Moines, and it is always top notch. The peanut butter, Bacon, and banana French toast is heavenly. Good coffee, good pastries, overall good experience. This place is in a busy college area, and is usually packed with locals. Worth a visit!

“A French Bakery worthy of Paris”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

The pastries are outstanding!! The croissant was outstanding nearly as good as those I have had in Paris. The baguette was first rate. They have a large assortment of breads and pastries. They have a very good breakfast and lunch menus. The eggs and omelet dishes were excellent.
La Mie gets crowded so if you want to have a choice of bakery items, try to go early in the day.
This is a real find!!

“French toast was amazing!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

The best French toast I have ever had with yummy strawberries and blueberries on top! Delish!
The coffee was fresh and the table of pastries looked sooooo good. I definitely need to come back with the family. My manager had some kind of egg dish that looked amazing. Great place for business and meeting family or friends.
