Lots of great family owned shops. Very fresh foods and flowers, along with street cafes. The street market area is a staple in the Rue Cler neighborhood.

This street has a warm atmosphere with many shops, flowershops in the street, many cosy restaurants, real old parisian ambiance, local grocers, no stress, you feel like to be in charming village; it's a pedestrian street without cars, so with many charm.

Going to Paris for the first time, we thought the "thing to do" was to picnic under the Eiffel Tower. While we were quite possibly the only people doing this in the frigid autumn air, Rue Cler was the perfect place to gather our fixings....More

A great area for seeing another non-tourist part of Paris. With small shops, restaurants/ cafes and a lot of bakeries, it's a good place for getting a break from all the tourists

A visit to Rue Cler is well worth your time when on the way to the Eiffel Tower. The street itself is one of only 5 or 6 in Paris that must remain untouched by time and probably looks about the same as it did...More

Can probably count on most places on Rue Cler opening by 9:00am, most close around 6:00pm. A few stores close mid day for an hour or so. Most bistros open all day. Most everything, except bistros, close about 6:00pm.

We stayed in an apartment in Saint Germain (which is a great area to stay in) so I don't know anything about the apartments you are asking about. Rue Cler is in the 7th Arrondissement / Eiffel Tower.
