Rue LePic is a small street off Blvd de Clichy but takes you past the storied Cafe des Deux Moulins made famous by the film Amelie. You also at the top will find one of the last standing Moulins in Paris Moulin Galette. There are a few shops to dine besides Deux Moulins. We enjoyed Paul's for Breakfast as well as Le Pain Quotidien. There are some nice shops for shoes and trinkets. It's one of my favorite streets to stroll.

This long street winds down in a loop on the south slope of Montmartre. Lots of cafes at the bottom end, lots of views and architecture along the way. The Van Gogh brothers live here.

Rue Lepic is a bendy street that snakes through the hills of Montmartre. You can find one end close to the Place du Tetre. So after a visit to the top of Montmartre with Sacre Coeur, Saint Pierre and Place du Tertre, you might want to take Rue Norvins from Place du Tertre to Rue Lepic and climb down the hill towards central Paris via Rue Lepic. At the start of the street, Rue Lepic is at its most charming and picturesque with views of the city, cobblestoned streets, and buildings lined with garden-box windows. Nice! Follow the street north past the Moulins de la Galette (one of Paris’ last remaining windmills at the intersection of Rue Lepic and Rue Girardon / Rue d'Orchampt). At this point, more cafes and stores start to pop up, but at its most northern part of the street’s winding path, it becomes a little more urban with graffiti and tighter spaces. If you continue, the street heads south again, and will soon twist sharply into a decline along a suddenly straight path towards its end at the bottom of the hills. Here, you will find shops with souvenirs from the more famous of Montmartre’s windmills—the Moulin Rouge. When the Rue Lepic ends, you will be on Boulevard de Clichy. Turn right, and you will see the Moulin Rouge, which isn’t really as spectacular as many may expect. But it’s still fun to see! You will also be at the intersection where you can access the Metro line at Blanche Station, in case you are ready to sightsee elsewhere.

I was lucky enough to be staying in this area and what a find it was - so many cafes, bars, restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and the area is buzzing with people all the time. Once you've moved past the Moulin Rouge that sits on the bottom corner of this street, the area isn't a touristy location.

Start walking up this street from Moulin Rouge (see pic) and you'll see all around it's the locals filling these places and it feels great to be amongst it. After you've walked a short block you'll see Rue Lepic crosses Rue des Abbesses and this is where the local action starts. You'll find clothing shops with that finesse only Paris fashion has, fishmongers, butchers and fruit/vegetable sellers, bakeries with the most delicious cakes and breads even the locals are lining up for (see pic of Canale pastries).

Amongst it all are lots of little cafes with outdoor seating or similarly much larger restaurants and bars with al fresco options which is perfect in the warmer months. It's the Parisian lifestyle to enjoy a cocktail or coffee outside while watching people walk their dogs, chatting to neighbours, listening to musicians playing or being part of the laughter and buzz that happens around here, so go on, give it a try yourself.

For those interested in browsing and shopping for food-related things, this is another Paris hotspot which tends to be very well known too locals and less so to visitors. Rue le Pic runs up the hill from Blanche metro station (near Le Moulin Rouge) and has a fascinating collection of local restaurants and bars and also boutique shops selling all manner of foods - cheeses, vegetables and fruits, wine, seafoods, bread and..... the star is the local horse butchery. (While many get squeamish about eating horse, it really is an interesting, delicious and healthy meat being low in fat, tender, tasty and truly worth trying). A substantial Monoprix is also located on the Place Blanche and further along, heading towards Montmartre, is a very good and comparatively new Carrefour supermarket. The entire precinct is therefore extremely well-serviced for those who love to cook. The shops continue back towards Montmartre along Rue des Abbesses and allied side streets also have many interesting places for antiques, clothing and bric-a-brac. It truly is a place to explore and enjoy.

Being very much a local shopping focal point, there is also every other shop imaginable and necessary and for this reason, the whole locale is hugely popular with those in the know and needing and seeking quality and convenience. We tend to prefer the Nicolas wine shop on Rue des Abbesses rather than that in Rue le Pic itself.

Having once lived just down the hill from here, this was the first time I had been back in seven years. Things have changed and the specialist boucherie chevaline is no more although Boucherie Deveaux offers it I believe.

However, in common with much of Paris in local areas, rue Le Pic offers a fascinating juxtaposition of shops, some run down and some really classy. It is so Paris with these happy details of co-existence which, anywhere else, would seem out of place. So cheese, fish, fashion shoes and underwear all live and deal happily together! These details of themselves are worth a visit!

Rue Lepic takes you from The Moulin Rouge at Metro: Blanche, pass local shop and eateries, including Le cafe 2 Moulins where Amelie was filmed, all the way to the back end of the Sacre Couer.
On your way you'll travel from busy food streets to quiet residential roads with artist studios and even Windmills. Your final destination should be the Montmarte Musuem, where you'll learn about this locality's connection with great artists like Picasso and Renoir.

Go here instead of the way too crowded streets around Sacre Ceur. More calm and easy.

Amongst other things in Rue Lepic you will find the Cafe dse Deux Moulins of Amelie fame.
Further up the road, if you look hard, you will find a plaque on the wall of the house where Vincent Van Gogh lived with his brother Theo.
