I'm staying at a vacation rental on rue Tiquetonne, and I appreciate the area even more. It's handy for restaurants and fresh food (fruit, vegetables, meat and fish). Although I haven't cooked much except for breakfast, knowing that it's available is good. There are many tourists like me, but locals shop and eat here too. There is a good grocery... More

Located smack in the center of Paris, cobbled rue Montorgueil is a market street filled with shops that feature myriad specialties, such as cheese, wine, fish, baked goods, fruit and vegetables. Nice cafes and restaurants also beckon. I especially like Little Italy Caffe, which offers good Italian food at reasonable prices. Check out its menu. La Maison Stoher opened in... More

This rue is teeming with delightful shops, boulangeries, cafés and such. It's a great place to shop for souvenirs and unique trinkets.

This road was a pleasant experience, we were able to walk and breathe in the true Parisian atmosphere, I was literally enchanted by the many shops and the multitude of bakery and pastry. Not much else but it is undoubtedly a pleasant dining experience.

Food lovers must visit this strret where you can find boulangeries, lots of different kinds of restaurants, cheese shops. Some part of the Street is traffic free so you can wander around freely. Try to visit this lovely Street. Very close to Bourse and Les Halles.

Montergueil is not a must do activity. You can find extraordinaty meals in any sites of Paris. Of course you'll need to look for with a little bit of effort to find it around the city outside the gastronomic streets, since the restaurants are all close to each other in those places. But it is okay, it has to be... More

Lively pedestrian street, full of all sorts of shops (patisserie, boulangerie, wine, cheese - try La Fermette and you won't regret it - meat, seafood, etc) and bistros, brasseries, creperies where Parisians and tourists (the ones that are lucky enough to discover this street) are enjoying wonderful food. We had dinner twice on this street on our 4 day trip... More

Cobblestone street lined by fancy french cafés, ice cream parlours, bookstores and supermarches. Lively atmosphere with happy, friendly people. One end is St Eustache Church (beautiful building) and Jardin Nelson Mandela (large fancy playground for kids). Walk towards Pompidou Centre for more shops. Starbucks, McD, KFC, Subway, Hema all here. Nearby Rue St Dennis has more cheap clothing shops and... More

We stayed one street over from Rue Mortorgueil, so we walked down it every day several times and shopped there every day. It is closed to cars, and is a street for locals. The cafes and restaurants are filled with Parisians until midnight every night, and many of them shop here daily, so we felt like we were experiencing Paris,... More
