If you really want to experience the localities of Le Marais, it’s best to stick to its Northern side. Specifically: Café de la Poste. Sat towards the top of Rue de Turenne, this place plays host to Paris’ young and hip crowd – many of whom use the setting to sit alone, with a book or laptop in hand. The prices are reasonable, the food is very good (order a classic croque monsieur for proof) and the outdoor terrace catches some of the best sun-rays in the city.
