Some people like Rue Cler. If you want fewer tourists on a more cozy street, try "La Mouff"! You will find the usual street market fare on a street lined with nice little family-owned restaurants and shops. The closest Metro station is Censier-Daubenton - only two to three blocks away. There's a nice little square at the foot of "La... More

Bakeries, gelaterias, restaurants, bars, people watching. This street has it all. If you are near the Pantheon, take a stroll down and grab some food. Lively and fun, and good for kids, too.

We stayed at Rue de Ecoles and this was a 5 minute stroll. It was lovely to come and watch the local Parisian daily shopping. What lovely food items to choose from over the weekends. It also has a fromager where we bought our daily supply of cheese from and took several vacuum packed home. there is a lovely seafood... More

Mouffetard is a real neighborhood market on Sunday. Creameries, patisseries, produce, wine shops, clothing and live music and dancing in the square. Mostly local people, few tourists. Only about 6 blocks long plus a little side-street action.

I highly recommend a visit to this market...but do it over a lunch period so you can eat there! The prices are 'local' prices, not the inflated tourist prices you'll find on the other locations in Paris. There are even lovely little boutique stores which my wife got stuck in! Thank goodness I found a unique ice cream store to... More

Coming into the road from the south was a little disappointing at a Tuesday morning 11am - many shops were about opening only. After a coffe it got better quickly and it bacame a delightful stroll through the diversity of shops. One could recognize an increasing density towards the end of the road. Various restaurants and facilities are inviting for... More

Interesting place to visit -- plenty to eat and lots of interesting storefronts. The day we visited there was a flea market at the bottom of the hill.

We visited around 2pm & there was not much action going on. Was nice to get out of the touristy areas into what felt like a normal parisienne neighborhood. There were still some nice bars & cafes open & I can imagine what it would be like earlier in the day.

Marché Mouffetard is a lively, busy market along one of the oldest streets in Paris, and it features a seemingly endless variety of fresh produce, fish, meats, and delicacies--some truly Parisian and others a mix of multicultural treats. From early morning until late afternoon, you can enjoy all the sights, sounds, and aromas of this wonderful place. In the early... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
