I really love this area, including rue des petits carreaux and rue Montorgueil to Montmartre and Etienne Marcel which is full of restaurants, bars and shops to buy everything from fish to vegetables!! Walking in this street really makes you feel like you are in a village but not in Paris! You can shop and eat, enjoy a coffee at a terrace (during summer) or go to the hairdresser in one street really close by. All without leaving a really small area, which has pedestrian streets only.
All cafés seem to invite you to stop, rest while looking at people coming back and forth doing their groceries. I like enjoying the sun while having a drink, so going there after work during summer is the perfect time for me! For a pizza I stop at Il Tre, pizzas are really good and staff is always nice.
On rue Tiquetonne, one of the intersecting streets you have small designer shops as well as vintage ones.
If you walk a bit further on Rue Montmartre there is a really good Chinese restaurant, dedicated to homemade noodles called “Les Pâtes Vivantes”. Even further down the street you also have an awesome book shop dedicated only to cookbooks!
And if you feel tired and need a massage, there is a Nuxe spa, high quality beauty brand offering massage and beauty care.
