Much has been written about this little street and though it is charming with lots of cafes and shops, patisseries and vendors, had it not been around the corner from our hotel, I don't think it would have been worth the visit.

We loved the cheese and chocolate stores. It is a nice street with cute shops. I would recommend a la mere de famille for their chocolate. Superb!

Wonderful cheese shops, great traitteur Les Jeusselin with some of the best pate de foie gras I've ever had, flower shops, produce stores, bakery, bistros. Just a great experience for Parisian visitors. Buy a slice of foie gras, couple of slices of different cheeses, a baguette, bottle of wine, some chocolates, walk two blocks to the Seine and enjoy lunch... More

Still love the street and area but has lost some of its character from twenty years ago. Go to La Petit Cler cafe for a very good Croque Monsieur (12 euros) always worth the walk down the street to see the vendors and get a taste of Paris.

This area has restaurants, grocery stores, ATM and cheese shops and fruit and product market and many more. It's just a street yes but if you are staying in the area it's the place to eat and shop.

We enjoyed walking down Rue Cler and stopping in at the different shops. Nice stroll to kill some time.

If you are a Rick Steves fan you'll know how enamored he is with Rue Cler, and it is a beautiful street. Blink and you'll miss it. There are lots of other streets in Paris quite similar and longer that I'd encourage you to seek out on your own. Rue Montorgueil on the right bank is very touristy but quite... More

We use Rick Steven recommendations quite a bit when we travel and this walk was recommended to take. We were not impressed. It was a nice walk with the fresh market stalls and a lot of cafes, but we feel we have discovered some better ones by just exploring side streets, etc. And it was full of tourists so I... More

You feel the heartbeat of the city in Rue Cler. This shopping street is full of life, buzzing with activity, with locals and tourists walking, shopping, eating, looking around, having fun. There's something for everyone, including dog lovers, who will see dozens of interesting breeds. My wife and I stopped for a glass of wine and a snack at one... More
