Le Marais is a district of Paris that spreads across parts of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements in Paris. It mixes together the old charm and modern day culture into an amazing area of Paris.
It is easy to walk to Le Marais from what people would call the centre of Paris and even better we would recommend staying in this area of Paris. The beauty of this area is that it is far out the centre so you don’t feel so overwhelmed by the madness of the city but close enough to walk to the main places but also amazing metro and bus lines.
Le Marais for us felt like the Shoreditch of Paris and we loved it. There are so many cool bars, restaurants and cafes to visit that we wish we had even longer in Paris to sample them all. However we have condensed together a list of places to visit in Le Marais.
There are 4 Season’s in Paris and they are all very popular and busy so expect to wait for a table. The main one is called Season but there is also Season Takeaway, Season Market and By Season which are all in the Marais area. Their Instagram is so dreamy and their food looks amazing, and you can also view the menu online
If you love pancakes (crepes) then you have to visit here. You can get either sweet or savoury crepes and both taste delicious. The crepes are so thin and there are so many different fillings/toppings to choose from. It is advised to book as its very popular
Love Juice Paris
Oh my gosh the most amazing smoothie/shake is served here. This place is off a side street close to the Pompidou Centre and you wouldn’t find it if you weren’t looking. The door to the place is tiny and glass and you wouldn’t visit it if you were just passing by, however you should! Love Juice Paris is so small and cute and the lady who made our drinks was really friendly and sweet, the menu is small so its not hard to choose what to have! The smoothie was super thick and creamy and the smoothie bowls looked delicious too.
This restaurant is seriously popular and its hard to get a table here as you cannot book in advance. It is recommended you arrive 30 minutes before opening and join the long queue of other guests. Ober Mamma is Italian so if you love Italian food then this is a must visit.
A gem that we stumbled across via Instagram serving amazing food and coffee. This tiny cafe again is one you wouldn’t find unless you knew about it, which is the beauty of this place.
Another place we found to visit purely by looking in Instagram. Their coffee looks amazing, and not to mention the incredible coffee art. They also serve an all day breakfast which if the Instagram photos are anything to go by looks delicious!
This is a kinda dessert bar/cafe. You can get the most delicious ice cream and also amazing luxury hot chocolate. Pozetto is open late so is the perfect way to end your evening. During the day in the summer the queue for the ice cream is very long but trust us its worth it. The white chocolate is delicious, as is dark chocolate and hazelnut too.
La Droguerie du Marais
If you are a fan of pancakes this is another pancake cafe to visit when in Le Marais. There is often a queue outside the entrance but its worth the wait, especially when only 2 euros for a crepe.
We stumbled across this place on our early morning run and were attracted to it by the name/sign on the outside. This places mainly serves burgers, salads and cocktails. If you visit at lunchtime you can take advantage of the amazing lunch time deal of burger, side and soft drink for 15 euros.
This is a cute health cafe opposite Des Enfants Rouge. If you want some healthy food when visiting Paris this is a great place to try, especially as they have a set brunch menu.
Des Enfants Rouge
We stumbled across this by accident it was AMAZING. You can visit here and literally eat any cuisine that you fancy from the variety of street food stalls. The smell was amazing and so was the atmosphere. This is a must see if you are visiting the area, but make sure you check the opening times!
Hank Burger, Hank Pizza and Hank Cafe are vegan restaurants. If you are a vegan visiting Paris then you must visit here. The modern restaurants are cute sized with amazing menus. At Hank Burger you can get a great set menu which includes a drink and the same at Hank Pizza.
Lily of the Valley
We stumbled across this whilst walking to Season as its just around the corner. There are 3 different locations to choose from, so pick one that’s closest to you. This cute cafe sells 45 different teas along with coffee, cakes and a vegetarian lunch.
Alma the Chimney Cake Factory
This place is SO cool, well the seating is anyway. Check our the pictures on Instagram but the seating arrangements are amazing. Anyway, visit here to sample a chimney cake which is basically a long filled cake.
This is a shop that also has a cafe. The shop is bloggers paradise selling really random and cool bits and bobs. The highlight is the cute vintage Fiat 500 in the entrance, that you just HAVE to get a photo next to!
This place is great for lunch and dinner and is an absolute bargain. You can get a set menu with 3 courses for 16 euros and the food is amazing. The quality of the food was superb and the flavours were dreamy. There is also so much choice on the menu that everyone will be happy! We highly recommend this place for food.
There are SO many cool places to visit in Le Marais that its hard to pick the ones to go to, however let us know where you visit.
