when tourists come to town, a visit here is de rigueur. restos on rue du pot-de-fer are meh so avoid.
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.
