We stayed close by and this was our default place to wander of an afternoon/evening. It is filled with all manner of shops selling fresh produce - meat, fish, cheese - there is even a shop selling various (expensive) smoked salmon. Added to this are the multitude of bars and restaurants and there is a true mix of local culture... More

What a great little place to shop and eat. It was only a block or so from our hotel. It was bustling with people eating and shopping and visiting. We love that little place.

We had the privilege of staying in an apartment along the Rue Cler. We enjoyed fresh bread every morning for breakfast. Once we left our apartment, we stopped at the fruit stands to pick up our daily assortment of fresh offerings, from all of Europe. Clementines from Spain OUR FAVE. Try to stay in a neighborhood when traveling to Paris.... More

After leaving the Eiffel Tower, my daughter and I wandered over to this beautiful little street. It was pretty in January so I can't even imagine what it looks like in the Spring. It's worth a visit if you are in the area. Lots of nice cafes, shops and markets.

Rue Cler is a pretty Parisiene street in the 7th arrondisement. Boasting a famous street food market, lovely cafes, restaurants & shops as well as an ideally central location (close to the Eiffel Tower, Ecole Militaire, etc), this is a beautiful place to visit when in Paris. Recommended!

This region is like the books and the movies and the dreams you had in your heart of what Paris would be like: cafes and restaurants; open-air markets with fruits, vegetables and fish; friendly little hotels; easy access to the subway and a short walk to the river; buildings with Mansard roofs and the Eiffel Tower. It's lively in the... More

Fromagerie, bakeries, produce shop, fish - wine, of course, and chocolate. Restaurants with a local feel. We ate at our favorite every night for a week- working through their specials off the mirrored wall. Started each day with a croissant and coffee - and an egg since we are American and they had a deal. (We don't eat eggs much... More

We rented a flat for ten days in the area and always shopped for food and groceries here: especially good are the following shops: Magasin Davoli and la Poissonnerie La Sablaise. Try them!

Not far from the Eiffel Tower, this short pedestrian-only stretch of butcher shops, cheese shops, bakeries, and restaurants gives you plenty of reasons to dally & soak in the ambiance. Grab a small wheel of cheese, a baguette, and a bottle of wine, then head back towards the Parc Du Champ de Mars for a picnic.
