Owner description: In the heart of the 7th district, (a short stroll form the Eiffel tower) le Moulin de le Vierge on St. Dominique provides for a quick gourmet pause in this chic and lively neighborhood... Nestled amongst the fashion boutiques, cafes and bistros of the area, the bakery caters to both the local gourmands and the visitors of this quaint area located between the Esplanade and the Champs de Mars. Inside beyond the counter is a small tea salon where one can enjoy tartines, millefeuilles, macarons and various other sweet or savory treats, accompanied by a coffee or traditional hot chocolate. The boutique on St. Dominique is open daily from 7:30 to 20:30, closed Wednesdays.

I have been to Paris 19 times now and I have to say this is our favorite street to walk on in Paris. It is in our favorite arrondisement, and it is a great walk. If you start from Champs des Mars where the Eiffel tower is and head towards Saint Germain des Pres you will hit all the best restaurants and shops one after another. They are all a stones throw from one another, like the three Chef Constant restaurants - Café Constant (139 rue Saint-Dominique), Les Cocottes (135, rue Saint-Dominique) and Le Violons D'Ingres (also at 135). La Fontaine de Mars (129) and its competitor right beside it Les Fables del la Fontaine at 131. Thoumieux is down the street at 79 and Chez L'Ami Jean is at 27 Rue Malar just off of St- Dominique. Rue Cler, the top notch open air high end food market/stores is right in the middle of it and for great coffee stop by Café Richard 145 also known as Les Comptoirs Richard which sells the coffee and other accoutrements. For some of the best Fois Gras and anything duck related go to Dubernet Foie Gras off of St-Dom at 2 Rue Augereau. There are so many pastry and chocolate shops many of them award winners in Paris and French competitions. Curling is a great store for both women's and men's fashion and then you also have Chattawak for women's as well. AND if you are dying for a Starbucks it is at 90 St-Dominique. Plus there are enough pharmacies and small supermarkets to do any kind of shopping for the essentials if you are lucky enough to rent a place or stay in some of the boutique hotels around. After so many trips we have decided that this is our favorite area and we now, for the past 3 trips, have stayed in this area and it is like a home to us. .

Such a lovely bakery on a great street in Paris. There a couple of seats in the back where you can enjoy a nice coffee with your pastries. Went here for breakfast a couple of times and had a nice experience there is a really old fashioned till that's quite funky.Coffee is good and the cakes and pastries even better and not a rip off like some other bakery's that are more pretentious in the area.

Not far from the gardens this is a place within Paris where you can often find a great restaurant or one of those boutique stores where you might find the treasure of your stay in Paris. Well worth a visit.

It's hard to single out any one street, especially in the 7th, but Rue St-Dominque is particularly nice. It's lined with great restaurants and shops and has a great view of the Eiffel Tower as you walk along. We were staying just off Rue Cler and used this frequently on our walks around town. I think it would be an excellent place to find accomodations.

The street is simply crowded with good to excellent restaurants.

We have eaten at Fontaine Du Mars often, but the standards seem to be slipping and the food just isn't as good as it used to be.

Fontaine du Fables is just wonderful. We ate sole meniuer (sp?) to share. Service was excellent, wine was good, atmosphere were all very good to say the least.

Cafe Constant - very good

Violin des Inglsise - another high end restaurant. Romantic restaurant and excellent food.

I could go on. It is hard not to stumble into a great experience.
