Cafe L'Eclair is everything you expect when you think of the perfect French cafe: delicious cafe au lait, croissants and tartine and a bonus, this cafe turns into a cocktail bar after dark.
Another benefit of this lovely cafe is its location on rue Cler. You can order a cafe to go and wander the pedestrian street market to your heart's content!

Weekday morning in Paris
After an early morning walk, I was ready breakfast and found a wonderful spot. L'Éclair's friendly staff kindly entertained my broken French and served a perfect breakfast: 1 egg, bread, coffee and juice. I spent a leisurely morning there reading and watching the school children on their way to classes.
Note: I've since found that L'Éclair is also a great spot for a late night drink!
