We will always stay here for future visit to Paris. The area itself is self sufficient for dining, shopping and bars and the Metro located at the end of the street makes it stress free to reach other parts of the city.

We visited Rue Montorgueil on our last full day in Paris. Stopped by a little café for a café crème and croissant. It was the perfect setting for watching this neighborhood as it came to life for the day!! Wonderful little shops, ready to provide everything needed for the day. Cheese, bread, rotisserie, pastries, and of course wine! Loved it... More

This is a local's shopping and eating district. Yes, there are likely tourists like you and me, but this is where the neighborhood shops. I am a devout Rick Steve's fan, but IMHO this beats Rick Steve's much touted Rue Cler hands down! Produce, cheese, bread, meat, seafood, pastries, wine...you name it and it's there. If you dont feel like... More

Visited at lunch time, when the street can be found very busy. Lots of people eating, wandering and buying. Some cafes, restaurants, take-away, shops and lots of flowers for sell. From Italian to Starbucks, and Indian to cheese stores. Didn't quite find a place to have lunch at and kept going.

I have been staying in one apt in rue Montorgueil for several weeks and I totally enjoyed how alive that road was. Cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and flowers shops. You can kind of breath the real Paris when you're standing in line waiting for your baguette and you can smell the just baked butter croissants... It's a lovely road.

The shops along Rue Montorgueil and the street market that takes place there provide for a wonderful and unforgettable stroll in one of the central areas in Paris. Do go there on market day, and visit all the stalls, try the food and delicacies, and pay a visit to some of Paris' oldest patisseries and shops.

If you have the cash and time you can hangout here all day. So much to eat here, lots of pastries and lots of restaurants. The market places are so well presented, you fill like you should buy when you have no need.
