Never been dissatisfied at La Mie. It's one of my favorite places to go. Grab some bakery items to go, your family will love you for it!

The food was fresh, flavorful, & fast! The service was friendly. I would come back again even with the road construction On the street. Pastries looked great- but the lunch was so generous we did not have to over indulge w/ desert! Do go!

The service is great and so is the food. Not you typical breakfast fare. Very fresh and appealing. The pastries and bread look fantastic. If you are in a hurry just stop and get a pastry and coffee.

Whether you're looking for sweet or savory, you'll find it here. In a small quaint ped mall. Parking in rear as well as in front. Near interstate 235.

Had poached eggs with toast, egg whites with spinach and avocado. The food was good, the avocado was a little old and the toast was extra tough, but you might like that. Mint tea was good, French roast coffee was the best of the options....More
