Paris Guide: 3éme Arrondissement
The 3rd arrondissement is known as Le Marais, and it is the trendiest place in Paris. Honestly, just get a little lost.
WHAT TO DO
Marché des Enfants Rouges | 39 Rue de Bretagne, 75003
Where fruits and vegetable vendors yell over the hoards of people in line for sandwiches and Moroccan meatballs. Recommendation: wait in line for Chez Alain Miam Miam sandwiches
Picasso National Museum | 5 Rue de Thorigny, 75003
If you're not a fan of Picasso, it doesn't even matter. This museum is insanely well-curated and draws you into the life of Picasso. Not to mention it's tucked into an adorable spot in the city.
MERCI | 111 Boulevard Beaumarchais, 75003
The most quintessential Parisian store with home goods, beauty products, clothing and perfect gifts for your francophile friends. Like, if IKEA was ten times smaller and French.
WHERE TO EAT
Robert & Lousie | 64 Rue Vieille du Temple, 75003
The cutest of all restaurants that will offer you good French food as opposed to really shitty stumbleupon brasserie food you might find wandering around aimlessly.
Candelaria | 52 Rue de Saintonge, 75003
Tacos that are actually good to eat in Europe.
Popelini | 29 Rue Debelleyme, 75003
Choux in all different flavors. The smallest but heavenliest of all desserts.
Café Charlot | 38 Rue de Bretagne, 75003
One of, if not the best, spot in Le Marais to people watch. Recommendation: warm goat cheese salad and the burger
Cafe de la Poste | 124 Rue de Turenne, 75003
The perfect corner bistro to grab a refreshment, coffee or just a moment to relax in good company.
Wild & The Moon | 55 Rue Charlot, 75003
Are you from the west coast of America? Missing your detox juice, raw food bars and charcoal lemonade while on holiday? Well, this is that place and you'll be transported into the perfect blend of healthy LA vibes with a Paris backdrop.
Ob-La-Di | 54 Rue de Saintonge, 75003
Need a healthy breakfast spot that isn't without avocado toast? You found it here.
Breizh Cafe | 109 Rue Vieille du Temple, 75003
Whatever you do, don't miss eating here when you're in Paris. Share both sweet and savory crepes and a bottle of cider, or if dining solo, a bowl of cider (you read that right, bitch) is always a great option. If you don't want to wait in line or cannot get a reservation the location in the 6th (Odeon) is equally up to par.
WHAT TO DRINK
Fringe | 106 Rue de Turenne, 75003
One must stay caffeinated and Fringe isn't a bad spot to go.
Boot Café | 19 Rue du Pont aux Choux, 75003
Potentially the smallest little coffee shop.
Cafe Loustic | 40 Rue Chapon, 75003
The desserts are as good as the coffee.
Little Red Door | 60 Rue Charlot, 75003
The cocktails are good and the vibe is right.
