We found this street while wandering around Paris. It was a delight to the senses to wander down. You will find all sorts of market shops like cheese, meats, bread, flowers, etc. Plus lots of delightful looking cafes and restaurants. Such a delight! It feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Paris. I highly recommend a long stroll... More

A beautiful road of the idylic Paris we all dream of. On it you can find cafes of all sorts, restaurants, little shops and the oldest bakery in Paris which, if you have a little money to spare, is definately worth the stop. Dont forget to have a kir royale (cassis and champagne) while sitting in one of the cafes... More

This neighbourhood has a really cool street vibe, it's now a pedestrian walking street (well, sort of). But nevertheless a great stroll down this street which is lined with restaurants, deli's, patisseries, fromageries, bistro's, etc. A mix of shops and boutiques, a lovely few hours can be spent here.

Wow this street is how shopping should be. The immediate area seems to of escaped development. It's pedestrian (well as much as you get in Paris) a wide range of small, independent shops butchers and supermarkets and pattaciries (cake shops) it's in the street behind a huge main road but feels like your in a village

So glad we found this great street in the second. Always great energy and good restaurants. It was close to our B and B, so we ate there each night. A five minute walk from our metro stop Reumer - Sebastanpol.

Rue Montogueil is a short three block pedestrian friendly street in close proximity to the old Les Hales market.It is lined with patisseries,chocolatiers,fromageries,bistros together with small markets selling fruit and vegetables. Although the old Les Hales is long gone,Rue Montorgueil still retains some of it's charm together with the charm of French life. Here can be found the oldest patisserie,Stohrer... More

That street that has many features of the typical traditional Paris street is suffering from the commercialization and increasing lower level atmosphere of the entire Halles area.

Very Parisian pedestrian zone lined with great restaurants, cafe's and bakeries. Not a cheap area, it is a very chic district so don't come expecting to find cheap food or drinks, but if your looking for the perfect French experience, grab an espresso and eclair and watch the crowds stroll by. It is mostly restricted to pedestrians but the odd... More

We strolled from one end of this street to the other and it took ages. Therear so many interesting shops and restaurants that it could take you hours to get along it. Avoid the cafe Le Centre Ville posite the Palais de Fuit unless you want weak, over- priced drinks.

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.
