Lunch Date at La Mie Bakery

Recently, Tim was in Des Moines over the noon hour for a client meeting and able to grab lunch quick. We chose a Des Moines favorite, La Mie Bakery, located in the Roosevelt shopping district.

Since opening in 2003, La Mie has become a well-known eatery for many people in the city. Perfect for a filling hearty breakfast or a light lunch of a sandwich, soup, or salad. There's also the option to take home a large variety of fresh baked breads, pastries, and desserts. We usually try to hit up their Farmer's Market stand downtown and grab a cream cheese croissant before they're all sold out on Saturday mornings.

After ordering our lunch selections on our lunch date earlier this month, I made my way down the counter where they always have a few varieties of bread set out to enjoy with your meal. This time we hit the jackpot and enjoyed this cinnamon raisin bread. So good! They also offer free iced tea when dining in. Another valuable perk! ;)
 
This time I choose the apple salad with apples, avocado, almonds, blue cheese, and cranberries.  
 
Tim chose the chicken salad with grapes on a croissant.  A couple of my other favorite lunch choices is their cream cheese, pesto, and sprout sandwich and also the tuna salad sandwich. It comes packed with currants, carrots, and almonds.  
 
And this ladies, was my date for the afternoon. I can rarely get him smile normally for a good camera shot.
That's what he gets for not posing for one second with a normal, acceptable smile. I post his pics on the blog ;) Maybe that'll teach him. Ha!
