As a long term Marais resident, I can attest, yes, the neighbourhood has changed a lot. My favourite bakery (tout au beurre, a few doors dpown from that new fro yo place on the pic) which made the best galette des rois is now a closing store... *le sigh*


"Le Sigh" is right! Dommage ...

Oy! Que c'est dommage! Et quelle horreur de repas! It's one thing to give preference to sightseeing over cuisine, to save money & time. Mais, en ce cas, pourquoi pas aller au Quick, ou prendre un croque-monsieur en flanant, au lieu de payer 30 euros pour quelque chose si truquée?


Les Cotelettes or Le Temps des Cerises?


Ha! Vous avez raison — si j'avais mangé chez Quick au moins j'aurais depensé moins d'argent pour presque la même qualité de la nourriture!

Parisian Fields

There is one nice place on the rue St. Paul. It used to be called Le Rouge-Gorge, but this spring I noticed the name had changed to Mere et Filles. Despite the change, I had an excellent meal there that didn't break the bank. And yes, Le Temps des Cerises (noted in the comment above) is always a welcome haven from too much trendiness.
