Always busy, always great. Breakfast or lunch, coffee and a pastry, nowhere compares. You haven't lived until you have had a French pastry from La Mei🥐

There is no one meal that I can talk about because, I've always had delicious meals at La Mie. The egg dishes, the chicken or tuna salad sandwiches, the salads are always a treat, and I have to restrain myself to keep from eating the pastries made there. For me, those are a once in a while treat, but for... More

Authentic French bakery with a fresh menu, free samples, and heavenly smells. The price is almost too good to be true. You can eat lunch here for $5, $8 if you'd like sides. The only downside is that it's usually quite crowded--but for good reason. As a local, this is my favorite place to eat lunch.

Stopped here to eat while traveling, and it was ok. There was just so much bread that it as hard for me to finish my sandwich. Good prices, and the food was not bad.

Pastries are the best in town. Grab a sandwich if you are in a hurry, or sit on the deck and enjoy the weather when it is nice. Meals are delicious. Service is very good. Wish it were open for dinner.

Co worker took our group to LaMie for breakfast before a conference. It was the perfect way to start the day. The selection of pastries was phenomenal. I had a light and buttery pastry with sweet peaches that was so good. My coworkers had egg dishes and each was pleased with their selection.

Besides being just a super cool neighborhood place to go - they have the best French pastries you'll find in the city. Locally owned by a great couple who pay attention to every detail. It's a perfect place for coffee and a pastry or a really fresh lunch with a great friend.

The main location on 42nd Street is amazing for breakfast or lunch, but I work downtown and can't always get away to get my fix. Problem solved with a new location on the Skywalk. My favorite lunch is the Quinoa Black Bean ... I think it's a new dish for them and only available at the Skywalk location. Great remodel... More
