Rue Mouffetard is partially a pedestrian street and is chock full of restaurants of every type--from Tibetan to Swiss--street performers, gift shops, and boutiques. And, best of all, it's not as touristy as you might think. I rented an apartment here for a few weeks...More

This is a famous street in Paris for food and rightly so as it is an area of "local outlets" where the shop keepers are really artisans who know their stuff. There are also many restaurants for any taste, again with a local flavour. There...More

We really loved this nice street wich runs up a hill. Full of local shops downstairs, many affordable restaurants upstairs. Gives you the idea not even being in busy Paris but a small town in another part of France.

If you will be visiting Paris on a Sunday, you are in luck. Around 11:00 each Sunday morning (even in inclement weather I'm told) a group of regulars gather at the bottom of rue Mouffetard in the 5eme. One or two musicians furnish the music...More

Part of the reason we love staying in this area is this wonderful old street. We loved the little shops - the cheese shop, the patisserie, the wine store. I like looking at stores in other countries and there is a nice little retail shop...More

We went to Rue Mouffetard on a weekday morning and started from Place de la Contrescarpe, which is a very romantic little square, but no sign of a market. As we walked down street Mouffetard, we found a lot of interesting, nice restaurants - many...More

So fun! It's the perfect little Parisian street to wander down, check out the little shops (reasonable stuff, nothing fancy) and enjoy the food markets. I didn't make any major purchases but I got some inexpensive cute flats, some French cd's, and just enjoyed the...More

Loved this area. Near our hotel in the Latin quartier (Libertel Quartier Latin), we walked there accidentally our first night. So many small places to chose from. We loved the small family run restaurants. Great food. We ate there several times as we enjoyed it...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
