I have read many comments from long-time travelers who insist that Rue Cler is no longer the lovely, neighborhood market street that it once was. I must insist that it remains a wonderful, essential little part of Paris. Don't miss it if you are in the area!

This is a great street to people watch, shop and eat. Highly recommend spending some time here, it is a wonderful place to be. After visiting The Eiffel Tower and making your way over to Invalides, take Rue St Dominque and a quick detour of Rue Cler for lunch or dinner.

We stayed in an apartment right around the corner and shopped here every day. They have every kind of food shop you need, with great products. The wine shop was very helpful. Nice cafes are there, too.

Spent some time walking rue Cler this morning. Was really enjoyable. From the beautiful flowers display at the florist shop, to the irresistible smelling prepared foods, to the savor use and sweets at the Boulangerie and Fromagerie, it was a treat for all senses. The things we tasted were fantastic. A really fun time for all ages.

Rue Cler is a lovely street slightly tucked away from the hustle of the rest of the city and brings its own charms of the smell of fresh bakery bread, lovely cafes, friendly store owners and beautiful Paris architecture. I would return here again to try a new spot for food and to further explore.

Shopping in a street market. Nothing more French. Great place and most people in the area speak English. There are at least 6 restaurants and a few small hotels. Just a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower.

If you want to buy good cheese to bring home - La Fromagerie is an excellent choice - tons of veraiety, friendly service and reasonable prices. Also they have sealed packages ! Beware of the markets, high prices and they cheat about the weight !!!
