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

There are a few of La Mie's in town but any of them would meet your expectations. My personal favorite is the one in Ruan II building on the Skywalk level. Everyday they have delicious looking pastries in the morning for your taste buds to...More
