I love wandering around the Left Bank and this narrow street has every conceivable type of artisan food you could want. With a bit of luck there might be a music combo playing in the street opposite the Cafe Tournbride. A good place to stop for some refreshment or a light lunch in that case.

As said before a lovely street with shops but not a flea market with stalls in the street as I'd hoped.

This was not in our main itinerary during our Paris visit, however after we went there for the first time , we kept revisiting the place each day during the remaining days of our Paris visit. Situated behind the Pantheon, this narrow street is ideal for a leisurely stroll as you check out the boutiques, cafes, restaurants, colourful ice cream... More

A lovely street which was a great traditional neighbourhood but of course realised its potential a long time ago, resulting in the trendification of its bars and the market produce going upmarket. Nice cafes to people watch and the lovely St Medard church at the foot well worth a visit while you're there.

There's a good variety of fruit, pastry, seafood, wine stalls. The street has it's own charm and you can easily take up 1-2 hours browsing at food. Enjoyed the stroll here thoroughly.

We went pretty late... We therefore could not experience the place for its full value and worth.. Despite that, its a joy to visit and shop... The fruits are fresh and the shopkeepers are friendly...

My wife and I try not to miss Rue Mouffetard whenever we are fortunate enough to get to Paris. We love to stroll the long street with all the incredible vendors, selling produce and seafood and wine. There are plenty of Restaurants to choose from and the street is also interesting just to people watch. If in Paris Don't Miss... More

Absolutely charming market street. When we arrived, there was a jazz band playing and the road was bustling but not too busy.The food was excellent - particularly the cheese and chocolate.

I led many tours to Paris before I discovered this delightful old street. I think one is wise to start at the "far end" with the Church of St. Medard which deserves a brief visit -- and then a slow amble up the cobblestones, browsing as you go . . . so many shops, cafés, so reminiscent of the pedestrian...
