Monoprix- near Marias? Passover? Etc

Is there a Monoprix store near the Marias?
- Also...can anyone recommend a good cafe for breakfast. We're staying on Rue de Jerente. (As an alternative to our hotel breakfast.)
- We'll be there over Passover...am I correct to assume that the Jewish restaurant and businesses in the Marais will be closed?
Thanks.

Walk down rue de Jarente (opposite the direction of traffic) to Rue de Turenne, turn right, proceed two blocks and cross rue St Antoine, turn left and there is a Monoprix a few doors down at no. 71

Hi R,

Maybe, maybe not.

The first day of Passover - yes.
The rest of the week depends on the specific business and how Orthodox the owners are.

Those dealing in products with leavening might shut down.

Dry goods, soft goods, hardware and other purveyors of thngs that are not connected to bread would not be affected.

Kosher restaurants coould be open if they sell products that are kosher for Passover.

I wonder if one could get a matzoh au chocolat?

Have a nice visit.



The same holds

I would assume that the orthodox Jewish-owned businesses will be closed the first two days and the last two days of the 8-day Passover holiday. These are the only days during which work is forbidden. The in-between days should find them open. Given the special dietary restrictions of the holiday, it could be that some close altogether, although I doubt it.

risab, you are talking about my neighborhood! I stayed at a hotel on the rue Jarente last trip.

Walk around the corner from your hotel & you'll a square called Place du Marché Ste-Catherine. There are many great restos there. In fact, just this last trip I had a Londoner try to convince me that I should eat at Bistro de la Place. I had to laugh because I already knew about it. As you walk down rue Caron from the Place du Marché Ste-Catherine towards the rue St-Antoine (which becomes the rue de Rivoli as you walk west) you'll see the Café Tabac Jean Bart where they serve un café in the morning, sell telephone cards, lottery tickets, cigarettes. Across the street is Miss' Manon, which seems to be a favorite among many who've stayed in this area. I passed by here again this past trip (I returned home last Sunday) and it was every bit as good as I'd remembered. Two doors down from that is a Boulangerie Paul which always serves great breakfast.

I was there during passover & Easter. I don't recall the Jewish shops being closed, only on Saturday. The Marais is one of the best places to be on a Sunday!

Here are some things I wrote about this area on Virtual Tourist which includes clickable links to other websites of interes:

Hope that helps! Risab, have a great time in Paris!
