We stayed early November in a nearby hotel. Out of four mornings in Paris, we had breakfast three times at Cafe du Marche on Rue Cler. Breakfast options were very reasonably priced and pretty simple. €6 for coffee, juice and croissant and €11 for coffee, juice, croissant and omelette. My wife and I had one of each and we shared...

As our apartment rental was close by, we found this brasserie to be a delight and had several meals at the le cafe du marche on Rue Cler. The service was very good and the servers were attentive to our needs, even during busy times. Our meals were reasonably priced and well prepared and we enjoyed relaxing and people watching... More

Friendly wait staff, generous portions , very reasonably priced. We ate here last year when we visited Paris and it was still very good this trip. Always nice to stroll Rue Cler and stop in for breakfast or lunch here.

A typical brasserie in Paris. Great for sitting in a wonderful Street but it was strange that for the same meal different prices are charged at different times of the day. The service is a bit hit and miss.

Our first night in Paris we were tired and hungry. It was close by and fine for a bite. Nothing outstanding, but good enough. The chicken paillard was the best thing, especially the delicious mashed potatoes. The baguettes were good as they should be. The steak frites was ok, good enough, not great. We wanted to try a few things... More

This restaurant is widely reviewed and included in many guidebooks. It is almost always busy, with a mix of Parisians and tourists. It is location, location, and location that draws people to this cafe. The food is great but there is much better very nearby, yet this place packs them in. Service is okay and once you sit down you... More

After many hours of travel we arrived at our hotel on Bastille Day and asked our concierge where in the neighborhood we should eat. She replied that closed and booked were our choices for the most part but she new a few places she could call in an hour or so if we could wait. We said OK, started to... More

Enjoyable, lively bistro in the heart of the action directly on Rue Cler. Good food reasonably priced with friendly staff. Lots of social activity so fun to be part of the French lifestyle as a tourist.

Arrived with four friends (one in wheelchair) just as 3 tables became clear out front - result! Good, honest food, all staff friendly and helpful. A great lunch venue on a busy street.
