Rue Cler is a street that has be made very popular by travel writer, Rick Steves. I have other streets I like better but I will always check it out if I’m in the area.
Right off Rue Cler is Catin, a well known cheese shop. They are very expensive and I noticed that most of the cheese is now tied in with the EU which might mean the cheese doesn’t taste as good as it did when it was just French cheese. I think the EU wants to make all of the cheese to be made be of pasturized milk.
I really liked the look of this little place, all funky and worn, but once inside learned that the front area was for smokers. It was all enclosed so it was like being in the smoking section. Maybe it’s better in the summer when the windows are open.
