We stayed at a hotel not too far from this street. Pleasantly surprised at the variety of food offered here, enjoyed the window shopping and the lovely pastries. Even tried a restaurant along this road. Prices not bad for Paris!

We were doing "The Hemingway" walk - and what would it be without The Movable Feast that is Rue Mouffetard Market.. It was a fantastic day, The fruit is always better than anywhere, the pastries amazing - everything perfect.

I rented a flat here for a month and fell in love! Great market street, many very good restaurants and music every where, especially on Sunday! Part is strictly pedestrian, and blocked from traffic on Sunday! Very crowded on Sunday mornings, young, old, rich, poor and families shopping for food! Sunday afternoon the restaurants are filled and it is common... More

The food market and the square - there are several cafés - are wonderful to visit at abt tune (streer market may be closed on Mondays), mainly by mid to late afternoon. in the surrounding streets there are several good restaurants also. You can walk up to the street from the Pantheon. Or take a cab.

A lively colourful market selling all different kinds of delicious fruit, vegetables and household items set in a quaint cobbled square leading to the old Rue Mouffetard. Here you will find lovely boutique shops and lots of really good restaurants and bars – a good place to explore and return to time and again. Set away from the main tourist... More

Wish I had more time at this little street market, just strolling through the stalls and trying little testers. There's something for everyone everywhere - cheese, dessert, pastry, cured meat, fruit, begets view etc at a very good price too. Can't wait to come back to Paris so I can explore it properly.

This part of Paris still manages to have a bit of the 'village' about it even though it is overrun by tourists. The square (place de la contrascarpe) with the fountain still retains its charm and you can spend quite some time sipping a drink watching the world go by - tourists and locals alike. Look out for the cows... More

Rue Mouffetard is a short winding street lined with glorious food shops. Everything you could ever want to eat. This has the feeling of real local and not so much of a tourist location. Very enjoyable to walk along and amaze yourself at all the wonderful French products.

Walk down this street and gather all sorts of delicious eats. Everything from whole chickens and falafel to fresh fish and fruit. There are bars mixed in between the markets, so take a load off with a drink too while you're shopping and stop to see Ernest Hemingway's old apartment building. One of my favorite places in Paris.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
