The La Mie Bakery pastries were a special treat at a graduation party I attended. The croissants were light and crispy, with various fillings. I would have liked a little more filling on them. They looked beautiful on the serving tray.

We went twice in our couple of days trip to desmoines. The atmosphere is amazing, nice breakfast place, so many varieties, you can order plates or sandwiches or just pick from your favorit bakeries. Very tasty and fun atmosphere for an occational breakfast.

Very impressive display of bakery items and a super nice menu! The bakery items are self serve which makes it easy to over serve yourself, beware... lots of tables inside and out. Plenty of parking in the back.
