Hello Erica. I’m a bit late I know, but can you tell us more about the people that live in Montmartre? Im working on a project and I’ve found very little information about the locals in Montmartre. I need to know what kinds of people typically live there, if you can help me I will be very thankful! Really good post by the way!

Thank You for this post, how wonderful and informative. The more you share, the more I want to come:) I must say that when I think of Paris, I don’t think of Starbucks and Subway:) I’ve heard that it is expensive to live there. I also heard that Americans are not well liked there. Could you shed some light on that. I hope that it is not true because I love Parisians:) If I win the lottery, I will definitely like to have a home there.

The photographs are wonderful and your insights extremely helpful. Hopefully, I will get to visit Montmartre on my next visit to the fascinating city…

I loved Montmartre while I was in Paris for 2 weeks. Amazing neighbourhood.

Thank you Nita! There are so many more places as well . . . and thank you Helen. I hope you have time to explore the neighborhood in September. And Many, yes KB (Kooka Boora) is fun and delicious. And Rose a treat. Enjoy and I hope you will have great weather in June. And Audrey, it is a little village, oui. Paris is made of many villages! – Erica

This is marvelous. Merci Beaucoup!

Wow, thank you Lulu! I will be reading this with great interest!

I love this part of Paris ! Montmartre is a lovely neighborhood, makes me think of a little village. Thank you for these nice photos.

Ooh, thanks for this post. My husband and I are visiting Paris in early June and I’m always on the look-out for ‘little gems’ to track down. We loved Kooka Boora (or, KB, as it now seems to be called) but I’ll definitely head for Rose Bakery next time 🙂
Thanks again!

What a lovely story of Montmartre. Its clear how much you love this place and I have to agree with you, it is one of my favourites spots in Paris. I am coming to Paris again in September and I will visit again especially since I have always wanted to go to Rose Bakery!

Super list-I’m looking forward to checking these places out. Montmarte is one of my favorite neighborhoods!

Hi Lily, thank you for the comment. I agree that the brunch at Coquelicot is delicious for those who have time. They have the BEST house apricot jam.

Great round-up Erica! As a fellow montmartoise, I think this is well worth bookmarking for anyone spending time in the area or even stopping by on a dimanche apres-midi, the Coquelicot also does great (but slow) brunch!
