We stumbled upon this charming street while walking around Paris and it was an amazing surprise. We absolutely fell in love. Lined up with small stores offering cheeses, pastries , produce and meats it was a place to see real Parisians. We took our time and sat down for great cafe au lait and croissants. Can't wait to get back... More

Ma rue préférée! My absolute favorite street in Paris just because it's so parisian. Charming, authentic, hectic, and vibrant. I really enjoy the atmosphere there.. Nice for some afternoon coffee while looking at the people passing by.

Rue Montorgueil offers a great venue for memorable, colorful photos at one of the best street markets in Paris. Bakeries, pastry shops, produce markets, butchers and fish stores dot the length of the street. People-watching is fun, and checking out all the offerings on display is the best part. We walked along the street after admiring the façade of Passage... More

We went back twice to this market street. Firstly, with our LaCusine Paris tour and the next day to have more time to browse. We loved this area. I have heard that the restaurants are quite overpriced - but we enjoyed shopping the area - a chocolate shop from 1761, Stohrer Patisserie which is the oldest Patisserie in Paris. Fois... More

Rue Montorgueil is an eclectic street in Paris. It has interesting boutiique shops, fantastic small restaurants and a very positive vibe about it. It is always lively, and often busy with people - locals & tourists alike. There is a street market that attracts a decent gathering. Nice.

Avoid the restaurants along this street, the street is more well known for market flavours including meats, bread, chocolate, vegetables to service the higher end of paris buyers given the position. The restaurants are mostly overpriced touristy types, much better for a drink and watch the world go passed than dinning.

This street is so cute! My family and I rented an apartment right around the corner and we loved this neighborhood. Wonderful cheese shops, bakeries, wine shops, etc. I don't know if it actually is, but it feels very local. If you can stay in this area, you certainly should. If not, it's worth a try. There are a bunch... More

I found this avenue of gourmet treats to be superbly understated, very French and comprising great quality produce. There were many locals and a respite from the hoards of camera wielding visitors. I picked up some superb treats for our lunch back in our apartment.

I confess that I was a little disappointed with this street. After seeing other streets and neighborhoods like Rue Moufettard or even the region around the Marais, this one looked overrated. But even so there are some interesting shops and, specially, two fantastic ones: E. Dehillerin (not technically IN the street, but very near) if you like to cook, and... More

For me the street was just an average street with shops and restaurant. There was not a lot happening. You can do these purchases somewhere else. Instead of this street I reccomend Rue de la Huchette, where you. Can buy food to eat at the appartment, eat at interesting fast food shops or at restaurants and it is really alive,... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
