We have stayed in Rue Cler a few times and even when we do not stay here we still visit to eat here. It is a great little street with some reasonable places to eat.

I just love the quiet, small town feel of this street. Stroll past the fruit merchant, go to the cheese store, one of the many wine stores, the boucherie, the fish store, and you've got yourself a picnic! Many little stores as well. Both times I've been in Paris, I have stayed around there and have loved it. Note that... More

My husband and I picked up food for a picnic after climbing the Eiffel Tower steps. It was maybe the best lunch we have ever had! The area is adorable and all the food is so fresh. Best strawberries I have ever tasted! We picked up great bread, cheese, and quiche. Everything was delicious. We also got a bottle of... More

Meander, have a bite/drink, stock up on bakery goods, cheese, meat; indulge in a treat -likely whatever you need for a wonderful picnic, you will find. Charming outdoor cafes abound on this market place street. I think I had the best strawberries in my life -such fresh fruit! In close proximity to the Eiffel Tour in District 7.

Just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower. Rue Cler is a perfect little street with wonderful restaurants and shops. Certainly worth the walk.

We had in our plan to enjoy an evening picnic under the Eiffel Tower. I'd read loads of reviews from people saying to head to Rue Cler, on TA, in guidebooks and online. My own fault, but I want to warn others - please check the opening times! We headed here around 8pm to find a completely closed street with... More

AMAZING Parisian experience. The food just tastes BETTER. The fruit stands, the fromagerie, boulangerie and other shops are NOT to be missed. Grab something from every one and head to Champ du Mars for a picnic!

Visited for lunch after spotting the Tripadvisor listing. It was a quiet Tuesday lunchtime, we very much enjoyed the break from touristville.

If you are shopping for food for your stay in Paris or even just for a picnic then Rue Cler is a must. Regarded as a Parisian institution in the 7th arrondissement. It consists of several blocks of food stores, stalls, and flower shops interspersed with cafes including outside tables perfect for people watching. Everything one would need is right... More
