Rue Cler was very quiet near the end of August but we did manage to have a nice lunch there. It was not as lively or charming as I remembered.

We were staying at my friends Mariana's place right by rue Cler, so we went almost every evening. We had a few good meals and my husband tasted the mojitos in every bar.

A friend recommended that we visit this market street. We were there in mid August, which is Europe''s holiday time. Many shops were closed so we could not get quite as excited about the time there. They did have some nice bakeries.

This street has everything you could want. From groceries, fish, cheese, chocolate to postage. It is truly one stop shopping.

Not at all. Rue Cler is about 3 block long and all the shops and cafes are open every day. Some open a little later on Sundays. Its just a neat little area to visit.
