Having lived in rue cler for 14 years I can tell you, this is one of the best in Paris. Pedestrian, charming and nice people. Stop there for a coffee or some pastery on the boulangerie. Also great to shop for food to cook at home on Sunday

What you read and what you get are a little far apart from each other. The lyrical beauty and famed freshness are not anything you won't get in any sub-division of this wonderful city, the street itself is quite small and restaurant and bakery I tried not really worthy of much kudos, pretty ordinary.

For us Rue Cler holds many memories of trips to Paris. Every visit something changes. Many shops come and go and others seem to have been there forever. There is now a Mariage Frère in the street, a very up market tea shop and then there is a local newsagent so there is a good mixture of shops and cafes.

Many feel Rue Cler is to touristy, not me. It is really fun to stroll up and down the street and window shop, or have coffee at one of the many bistros. A place not to miss is the Mephisto shoe store. Great shoes and a lot less expensive than in the states. We also found a great little oriental... More

A lovely market street that gets very lively in the morning with shoppers and evening with strolling residents and tourists. There is a little supermarket here that sells basic food and toiletry items. Most of all the restaurants are what you would expect in a market street. I particularly liked Le Petit Cler. As a solo guest I dined alone... More

This is for tourists and when you walk or sit at a café, you only see and hear foreign languages, it may have been nice one day but not anymore and they overcharge for what they serve which makes it quite irritating. Would never go bak there again.

This market has great choices of everything you need for a picnic. We really enjoyed this pedestrian only street to get our picnic supplies. Very classy, quaint and quiet.

This beautiful market street is full of everything you need from food and wine, cafes, meals out, boutique shops, fresh fruit and veg stalls and two small supermarkets. It is so central to all the attractions too. I felt quite safe and relaxed here and we visited all the main sites mostly by walking apart from taking a two day... More

This is a short and interesting street in the 7th arrondisement. It would be ideal to visit on a day when you plan to visit the Eiffel Tower or the Army Museum/Invalides. Stroll the length of the street and find somewhere for lunch or ice cream. Our kids loved picking out candies in À la Mère de Famille. And we... More

We headed for Rue Cler having been to the Eiffel Tower and walked in the nearby parks with our 4 and 9 year old. This is a cobbled, pedestrianised street boasting a wide choice of cafes, patisseries, shops and lovely things to browse. We had a great lunch before heading back via a different route towards Tour Eiffel. A lovely... More
