    Go to rue Montorgueil -- it's a market street near Les Halles and the St. Eustache cathedral. All the tourists go to rue Mouffetard and rue de Buci, but Montorgueil is locals. L'Escargot restaurant is famous, but pricey. But don't miss Stohrer Bakery up the street...awesome pastries and croissants...especially love the canele' pastry. They used to make the croissants for the kings--sign out front. over 9 years ago

    Wrote a blog post about this very thing: http://news.airtreks.com/post/2010/11/secret-spots-of-paris-7-unique-recommendations/

    I've been on Rue Montorgueil and it's pretty cool too. Definitely not a tourist destination, pretty gritty in parts and not as quaint as Mouffetard

    Also try the Marché Saxe-Breteuil in the 7th:

    Visit the Catacombs - eerie and fascinating tunnels stretching underneath the city, housing the bones of millions of anonymous Parisian residents. The main point of entry is in Place Denfert-Rochereau but if you can find a local 'cataphile' to take you through an alternative route (highly illegal but exhilarating!) that's another option!
