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

Thankfully the person who met us at our apartment recommended this street. We didn't know about it beforehand, but it became a very frequented place during our 10 night stay. I will say, it helps that we are both foodies. We ate from many of the shops there, and took home beautiful chocolate souvenirs for friends from two great chocolate... More
