Ile Saint Louis (3)


Let’s finish the tour of Ile Saint Louis by a visit to the narrow main street, rue Saint Louis en l’Ile. This is where we find the church with the same name, but also a multitude of shops, restaurants, bars.

Several of the commentators on the previous posts on Ile Saint Louis have immediately referred to “Berthillon”, Paris’ most famous house for ice-cream and sorbets. This manufacturer and retailer has its primary store here, but you can also find their products in almost all the bars along the street – and elsewhere. Their products are said to be completely natural; milk, sugar, cream, eggs and different flavours.

Among the restaurants, there are several good ones, but also some tourist attractions, like “Nos Ancêtres les Gaulois”, where you eat and drink as much as you like for a fixed price. The menu is supposed to offer more or less Asterix – Obélix type of dishes.







There is also what must be considered as a top restaurant, “L’Orangerie”. It used to belong to a popular French actor (J-C Brialy), but was in 2006 taken over by Michel del Burgo, who was chef at the three macaroons (stars) restaurant “Le Taillevent”.

There are certainly other quite good restaurants (“L’Ilot Vache”, “Le Relais de l’Ile”, “Les Gourmands de l’Ile”…), but unfortunately I haven’t tried them all. Maybe some of the readers have some recommendations?

You can also find a multitude of boutiques and a few surviving old-model grocery shops, butchers etc… (see top picture).
Please not that I added two extra posts today – see below!

Hi Peter!
First time I'm first.
It is absolutely adorable place and I enjoyed the read.
Thank you for sharing.

Shionge said...

I love to check out those shops and also cafes :D The buildings are all so artisitic that it doesn't look like a shop at all.

lyliane said...

Lequel me recommandes tu?, car de ceux là je n'en connais aucun, que de nom. ( je ne peux avoir de galants hommes qui m'invitent tout le temps!!)

alice said...

Je croyais avoir laissé le nom de "mon" petit restau dans un commentaire mais je ne le retrouve pas. Donc, au risque de me répéter, c'est "Mon vieil ami".
J'ai beaucoup aimé tes petits boni du dimanche!

hpy said...

J'en ai bien essayé un mais c'était il y a beaucoup trop longtemps pour que je me souvienne du nom. Il donnait sur les quais, direction rive droite si je me rappelle bien. Je me rappelle y avoir bien mangé, et le dessert c'était des fraises je ne sais plus comment. Mais bonnes!

Cergie said...

C'est une très belle rue. Je l'ai arpentée avec Reflexe et justement si je me souviens bien, au bout il y a un petit square avec un escalier qui mène au quai. J'y ai photographié un couple qui avait l'air vraiment illégitime, car si amoureux et absorbé dans sa "tâche"...
(C'est ainsi que je sais pour les RV....)
J'ai fait une belle photo, sans me vanter. Mais je ne la publierai pas.

delphinium said...

ben ça va bien ici, on parle de bouffe, de glace, de trucs et de machins, cergie avoue qu'elle photographie les couples illégitimes, alice nous parle de son vieil ami. Tout un programme...

Nathalie said...

Excellents, tes collages de magasins, tous plus jolis et raffinés les uns que les autres.

Et ces petits narcisses qui nous parlent de printemps, c'est complètement craquant !

Quand à la dernière photo, j'ai reconnu les dessous de Miss Eiffel avant de lire le commentaire, mais je reconnais que c'est une vue complètement étonnante. Bravo !!!

(c'est là qu'on voit qu'on a beau se promener dans les beaux quartiers, les demoiselles à la jambe légère n'ont aucun scrupule à laisser les hommes regarder sous leurs jupes)

Azer Mantessa said...

it's good to see the concept shops on the streets are still alive as here ... they are terribly dying losing businesses to shopping malls and hypermarkets.

Mathilde said...

Bonsoir Peter,

Je connais "Nos ancêtres les gaulois" Nourriture un peu solide mais cadre extrêmement sympathique. C'est un endroit que j'aime, parce que je suis une incorrigible "regardeuse" un vrai leaser... Merci pour ton choix de photos et ton passage.

Bonne soirée à toi.

Peter said...

krystyna:
Someone has to be the first! Nice that it was you this time!

shionge:
... as a Parisian shop, yes! At least there are still quite a few like this. I guess you already visited a few!

lyliane:
Parce que tu vas au restauarant seulement si tu es invitée? ... alors, peut-être un jour!

Peter said...

alice:
J'ai oublié de citer "Mon viel ami". Oui, il semble qu'il est aussi très bien!

hpy:
En effet, un peu flou comme indications. Les fraises comment? Rouges?

cergie:
J'ai également fait une photo d'un couple (légitime ou pas?) que tu peux voir sur mon poste Ile Saint Louis 1 (+ sur le photo-blog). Probablement moins belle que la tienne.

Peter said...

delphinium:
Oui, tout un programme. Si tu as besoin d'un guide, je suis là!

nathalie:
... et toi, toujours en pantalons?

azer:
Yes, that's the dilemma! But there are still quite a few left here!

Peter said...

mathilde:
Pour la qualité de la nourriture, je préfère quand-même t'accompagner à l'Orangerie. Pour l'ambiance, c'est peut-être moins évident? (Je ne suis pas allé à l'Orangerie, mais la cuisine doît être très bonne, tout comme dans le resto proposé par Alice.)

Sonia said...

Wonderful places, Peter! You are really fortunate to live in Paris!

Love your photo (avatar) on comments! You as a child looks adorable!

Ex-Shammickite said...

Another great post by Peter. I'd love to be eating out in one of those restaurants tonight!

Peter said...

sonia:
Yes, I'm lucky!

ex-shammickite:
The concorde is not flying anymore. Maybe tomorrow?

Olivier said...

dire que j'ai faillit rater la pause Berthillon ;o)

april said...

I'm a big fan of all those old-fashioned shops all over Paris. I remember 'Pom Canelle' because I have taken a photo, too.

Kate said...

More great photos! Thank you Peter, esp. since Ile Saint Louis is one of my favorite spots, and, oh, how we loved Berthillon.

Ming the Merciless said...

I remember walking down the main street in Ile St. Louis but I don't recall see that many retail stores and restaurants. Most of what I remembered were townhouses or older residential buildings.

Peter said...

olivier:
Depuis le temps que tu parlais de Berthillon...

april:
I went to see "Pom Canelle" - and your other nice photos of shops and restaurants!

kate:
Happy to see that you also had found this small island and the ice cream!

ming:
You must have been a bit sleepy!

I never go to my doctor anymore asking for pain killers prescription and then be turned down at the end, all I do is order online from www.medsheaven.com hassle free and low cost, they have three pain killers listed on their website which are ultram tramadol celebrex that you buy, and the best part is no prescription required!!!
