All-around good café

It was late and we were a tired, starved family of six. Although the café was very busy, they welcomed us warmly and found space for us. The staff kindly spoke English or politely responded to my broken French. Great food, for picky kids or adults looking for something beyond the basics. They... read more

Le Cafe du Marche is a typical Parisian hangout with a trendy young crowd, especially on the sidewalk tables. Food was OK, portions large, prices right but this is not haute cuisine. If you're near the Ecole Militaire or Invalides, would be nice for lunch or a light dinner. Best choice would be the poached salmon salad.

I live in Paris and every time there's people over we take them there. So far, never a disappointment. I also go on my own during the week from time to time and meals are consistently good.

After shopping along the Rue Cler my family and I sought out a cafe where we could dine and people watch and we were glad to have found le cafe du marche. Situated on a corner among all the shops it was perfect to view the busy shoppers from our outdoor table. Our waitress was very congenial and efficient. I... More

We had just finished a concert at Saint-Chapelle. Too early to head up to our reservations, and Le Cafe had a nice outdoor dining area, so we stopped for some nice Rose. Good street scene, the food we saw served around us looked nice. Only issue, some of the "beggars" invaded the dining area looking for $. Wait staff chased... More

nice outside seating for people watching (you will see many Americans carrying Rick Steves' guidebooks- who has touted the Rue Cler neighborhood). Restaurant offers a nice breakfast through dinner menu - good food, lots of choices, pleasant service staff.

When I come to Paris and stay on the Rue Cler I eat at le cafe du marche. Why would I eat anywhere else? The food is delicious, especially the Pasta Rigatoni, and the atmosphere is everything Paris. Be prepared for crazy close tables and smoke, but a vibe that can't be beat. The prices are great too. Our waiter... More

During a recent two week trip to Paris, my wife and I ate here on several occasions. We were staying nearby, so this was an extremely convenient choice for us. The food was very good, and the service was friendly and efficient. This place is open late and it is open seven days a week. Cafes get a little harder... More

They have great prices and are directly on the Rue Cler. They have a good assortment as well. Most of the seating is outdoors so you can watch the crowd go by. The food was very good. Great value for the price.

Best prices in the neighborhood. Stop in at the bar for a morning coffee with the locals. Great breakfast specials for 7E.
