About
With its quaint boutiques, bakeries, and specialty food markets, there's something for everyone at Rue Cler. Here, you can take a relaxing coffee break while people-watching or indulge in a chocolate spree at the oldest chocolatier in the city that was established in the 18th-century. Cheese enthusiasts can savor new flavors or stock up on their favorites at the fromageries. Bookstores offer vintage postcards, and butchers provide fresh meat for a home-cooked meal. Locals recommend grabbing a tasting platter and heading to nearby Champ de Mars garden for a picnic, right in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. – Tripadvisor

Rue Cler is very close to the Eiffel tower - in fact I am not sure where Rue Cler ends and the Eiffel Tower district begins. My daughter and I went In April. Though the weather was fairly rainy and cold, it was just beautiful, The main road was quiet and extremely quaint. I felt safe at all times. There is a beautiful florist and a toy store we enjoyed. We also enjoyed several of the restaurants. There is also a grocery store that had everything we needed and was reasonably priced. Very glad that we chose a hotel in that area.

Rue Cler is a great way to experience the "real Paris" without the stifling crowds. Rue Cler is the most famous "shopping street" in Paris. Locals come here and peruse the many shops and restaurants for groceries, fresh produce, wine and other needed commodities. Come early if you can and you will find a relatively quiet and serene oasis with a lot to offer, whether you are a local or a tourist. Make the Rue Cler experience a part of your Paris itinerary and you will not be disappointed!

My hotel is on this street and I am so happy about that!!! There is a bit of everything on this street which I love. You can get food to go or there are plenty of sit down options. There are also fresh food stalls and a small supermarket too. The pastry and cake shops are like nothing I've every seen and there are also exquisite chocolate shops. Everything that any one could want and it's got a truely mixed crowd - from young adults to older and definitely family friendly as there were children playing chasy and riding their little bikes today.

Some say it is too touristy, but we loved our walk down Rue Cler. We went the first afternoon after arriving in Paris and bought several things from several stores to have a picnic in the Champs de Mar with a view of the Eiffel Tower. It fit perfectly in our walk after Trocadero to view the Tower. I won't make a special trip across town but if you need something to eat while in the area, it is lovely.

One of the prettiest streets in Paris, this rue has no cars and lined with all different shops. We walked through on a Sunday and nearly every shop was open and packed. You can shop for trinkets, pick up sweets or baked goods or just grab a bite. It is also conveniently located near the Champ du Mars.

Rue Cler is primarily the main street of interest filled with shops, cafes, bakeries, restaurants and fresh markets. Most of the cross streets also have cafes and restaurants. Many locals and tourists staying at nearby hotels come here.

This is one of the most famous market streets in Paris and it was on my to do list.

There are many cafés, boulangeries and specialty shops and you will see many Parisians go for daily shopping and toursits wandering the street.

Its located in the 7th Arrondissement on the Left Bank and in one of Paris’ most exclusive neighborhoods.

We walked from the Eiffel Tower which was not fara way but,Champs de Mars, Hotel des Invalides and the Seine River are also close.

Lots of French around, but it seemed very touristy. Restaurants could have been anywhere. Very few unique shops - one exception being A la Mere de Familie. The adjacent side alleys have some good shops. Oh, after 2pm on Saturday seems to pretty much shut down. Don't know what the fuss is about!

We got there mid morning g around 10. Street was quiet and charming . I had seen Rick Steves guided tour in this and that prompted our visit.
Ate the most delicious pastries we’ve had in Paris thus far . Enjoyed the chocolate shop and buying some wine as well as a leisurely walk.
