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

Spent a week in an apartment just of Rue Montorgueil and it was fabulous. Great food from the markets, hubby loved discovering and trying different wares from boulangeries in the street for breakfast and an afternoon aperitif and people watching in the evening. Perfect

These small streets, is what makes Paris romantic for us. Fun during the day to check out the shops, but very romantic at night, walking hand in hand. You will find everything you are looking for here; cheese, wine, patisseries, etc.

I stayed on the pedestrian Petits Carreaux, an extension of pedestrian rue Montorgueil, and each time I walked down the dark, quiet corridor to the front door of the building and out onto the street, I felt as if I was walking onto a movie set. People continually stream up and down the street at all hours of the day... More

Situated in the heart of Paris this street and indeed the entire area demonstrates why we say that Paris is really a collection of villages. It feels like a cheerful village market street , where one meets friends, shares a joke and some gossip -- and buys some really fresh produce and cooked fare to take home . And its... More

We stayed in an apartment off Rue Montorgueil, so popped into these local shops a couple of times a day. There really is something for everyone, with a shop for every gourmet need, but also plenty of everyday grocery stores. On the end closest to the Seine we has the most divine truffle pizza ... there are a couple of... More

Just a little bit to the north from the Halles and Chatelet les Halles is located Rue Montorgueil with many restaurants,cafes,bakeries,fish stores,cheese shops, wine shops, produce stands and colorful flower shops.The pavement under the feet is cobblestoned. Rather narrow street in the comparison with other Paris streets,boulevards and avenues, it gives the impression of socializing environment in the middle of... More

I love the street, it has a lot to offer: nice shops, nice bars and good brasseries/restaurants. Good on every day of the week.

The open air stalls and the market atmosphere along with the extremely central location of this street make it a very worthwhile stroll.
