About
Located in the 1st and 2nd arrondissements, this charming pedestrian street is filled with bistros, boulangeries, and a trove of must-try foods. As one of Paris' permanent market streets, Rue Montorgueil is also lined with shops selling high-quality local produce such as cheese, bread, and fruits. Don't forget to visit Stohrer, the oldest patisserie in Paris which was established in 1730. For time-pressed travelers, a tasting tour of this renowned street is highly recommended. Otherwise, it’s also easy to navigate independently at your own pace. Most shops will close on certain days, so check the opening hours beforehand to avoid disappointment. – Tripadvisor

The area
Neighbourhood: Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.

    Streets of Les Halles
    Streets of old in this area as it's the original quarter where Les Halles was until 1971 or so. The streets are a step back in time and it's not hard to envisage how busy the markets were here just over 50 years ago. Shops and lots of eateries and bars.

    Best Market Street
    I think this is the best market street in Paris. Left over from the big Les Halles days, there are all types of food shops along this street, plus a great collection of restaurants. At happy hour, all of the cafes fill up with youth. Great place to buy and eat food, very little traffic, one of the hearts of the city.

    Best Pedestrian Street in Paris
    Probably the best pedestrian street in Paris and that says a lot. Lined with cafes, small shops, you can stroll seemingly endlessly. If you start at the now modern Les Halles, your walk northward will take you back ward in time one store front at a time. Once you're done, somewhere around Rue Reaumur, you can zip over to Rues St Denis for a return trip down another fascinating street.

We got to know rue Montorgeuil when we began a series of visits to the 2nd arrondissement about 5 years ago. With each visit I appreciate it more. Don't miss La Fermette for cheese and Storher, the wonderful patisserie that was good enough for Marie Antoinette. Nuxe is a recommended spa and where do I begin for cafes? So much great selection and so many Parisians just going about their lives, for you to observe, if that interests you.

We were staying in the area and needed to pick up a few groceries. This area has everything you need and more! So many specialty shops as well as your basic grocery stores. We went in the evening so a few shops were closed but the bars and restaurants were busy and sidewalks were full of people standing around with a drink in hand. Very fun vibe on this pedestrian only area.

We discovered Rue Montorgueil many years ago while staying at a nearby hotel, on a trip to Paris. We rediscovered it on our most recent trip. It is a street full of life. There are countless delis, cafes, restaurants, boutiques, bakeries, and other stores selling just about everything and anything one would wish to buy. We loved the variety of cheeses and the crusty bread each morning, and a bottle of red towards the evening! We must return!

We have rented apartments in this area several times and love to return for the huge assortment of cafes, food shops, and restaurants. Some of the best food shopping ever. Very busy from lunch time forward.

We went to this area to visit the Stohrer and found the street and area to be really nice. There are a lot of great looking restaurants, patisseries, shops and other stores. It would be a great place to go to visit and spend some time and have a nice drink and/or meal at one of the cafes. Worth a visit.

Lots of shops, bakeries, bistros and stunning architecture. A great place to go in the afternoon, visit a few shops and enjoy a glass of wine. Highly recommend!
