Many different types of food places and cafes. We walked down the street and put together a meal of meat, cheese, bread, and dessert plus a bottle of wine and then took the short walk to Place de Mars and had a picnic overlooking the Eiffel Tour.

Two short blocks of street vendors, small shops and cafes. Variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, flowers, etc. We shopped here for our picnic lunches. A lot more fun than what the guys expected!

Really a nice local street a few blocks long loaded with shops, dining establishments, markets, etc. Nice place to be in a very large city.

Great shopping and eating on Rue Cler. We had dinner and snacks here pretty much every night during our stay. If you're close to this street, definitely head over.

Rue Cler is promoted by the city of Paris as the typical street in town, a summary of all you can find strolling around the city. If you are short of time in Paris, don't miss Rue Cler. Rue Cler is only a few steps from hotel des Invalides and Rodin Museum

Rue Cler is a great neighborhood for people visiting Paris. It operates like its own little city with all kinds of markets, retailers, small shops, hotels, and restaurants. It works very well as a home base for exploring Paris. Metro, bus, and RER service are excellent, and it's within walking distance to a lot of the major attractions -- the... More

We visited this area on a Sunday morning. Lots of Parisians were strolling leisurely down this little streets that was teeming with cafés, bakeries and open markets. Wonderful way to experience a lazy morning

Loved strolling the Rue Cler and its many enticing shops!! It is vehicle free which makes shopping pleasant. Visited several specialty shops but mainly enjoyed the food offerings such as the patisseries, a fromagerie, and fresh fruit and vegetable stands! We did a lot of tasting, but there are also a few cafes for those needing a more substantial meal.... More

Loved people watching and stopping for a drink, ice cream. Hated all the outdoor cigarette smokers! Don't recommend the ham and cheese baguettes if one is American as they arrive without mayonnaise or some sort of seasoning so rather bland for US tastebuds. DO look up at the architecture and photograph things you are interested in. Take none pose photos.... More

This street has several shops (including one selling luggage), restaurants and cafe's . We bought food there after walking from Ecole Militaire going towards Hotel Des Invalides. The shop that we bought from had friendly people and good food. This area was also recommended by our tour guide following our walking tour.
