I've had it at Le Procope but I have to say it wasn't so great. And it's supposed to be their specialty!!

Hi Melinda,
I would say the southern part of Rue Rodier is better than the northern part, which goes into the Boulevard Rochechouart and all its crowds. The 9th isn't the most charming part of Paris ...

Try Le Pamphlet which is right in the Marais. Excellent, just excellent.

Other musts would include: La Comptoir for lunch since you can't get in for dinner until January (the line might be long), ...

Try BE "boulangepicerie" in the 8th. It's very foodie oriented.

There's also, of course, Hediard and Fauchon, both at the Place de la Madeleine.

And I love the food at the Bon Marche gourmet st ...

Try La Truffiere in the 6th, Le Tastevin on the Ile St. Louis or Aux Lyonnais in the 2nd. All are wonderful.

It may be considered touristy, but I love the breakfast at Les Deux Magots. And with the square right in front of you, you have great food and great people watching all in one.
