“Great neighborhood hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Rue Cler, in the 7th arrondissement, is a hub of activity: the markets on the street are well-known, and in the evenings, the cafes that line the street are completely packed with a mostly young, lively clientele.
Had a great, casual dinner here....not rushed, not bothered...just relaxed and soaked in the atmosphere.
Food is good..not great...but it is not that kind of a restaurant...
If you want to feel part of the tapestry of the area, Le cafe du Marche is the place!

“Great Cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

This place is very good. We had breakfast here almost every morning during our stay and it never failed to disappoint. They have a simple breakfast menu that was filling and tasty. The cafe is lovely and the service is friendly.

“Charming Cafe on Charming street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Great people watching and a decent and cheap breakfast. Good coffee and excellent croissants! The service was perfect - I didn't feel rushed, but wasn't unattended to either. Lots of locals in there.

“Relaxed Inexpensive Cafe with Very Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

My wife and I stay in the 7th, less than a block from Cafe du Marche. This cafe is incredibly popular for very good reasons. It is in the Rue Cler Market so that you are treated to non-stop people watching. The service is very "American" -quick, in English w/o any attitude. Be forewarned, the Frenchies smoke ALOT in the outdoor seating area. In brief, the food and wine are very good considering the quite reasonable prices. If you want a great burger or a dinner salad and good bread without breaking the bank, this is your spot. Stay and order another drink and/or desert after dinner, there is no rush. When you are done just walk over to the Champs du Mars to watch the Tower light up at 10 or 11. Desert Tip: order the chocolate moelleux topped with vanilla ice cream--absolutely delicous.

“Great Parisian Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Le Cafe du Marche is a typical Parisian cafe . . . friendly, crowded with locals and regulars, up-beat atmosphere, good food, friendly waiters . . . just a relaxing place to have lunch. As a seasoned traveler who has been coming to Paris for the past 50 years on business and pleasure, and as a consistent Tripadvisor contributor, I highly recommend this restaurant
