Recommended Restaurants in the Montmartre area

We are on the Paris and Heart of France tour in early April. We have a 5 days in advance of the tour in the Montmartre area before the tour starts. I am looking for recommendations of places to eat in that area. We do have two food tours schedules and plans to visit a few of the museums not covered on the tour. So any and all recommendation for both restaurants as well as small cafe's and good local bakeries, cheese shops and of course wine shops.

Chez Plumeau, Coquelicot (breakfast/brunch and bakery), Josse Philippe (deli, sandwiches), La Rughetta, La Cave Gourmande, Le Potager du Pere Thierry. Walk down rue des Martyrs - lots of bakeries, cafes and shops.

Franquette, 8 Rue des Dames, has interesting shareable small plates. We also enjoyed Le Moncey, way better than it looks. 14 Blvd des Batignolles, just around the corner from the B. Montmartre, our tour hotel. Something different was Casero, 9 Rue Biot, an Argentinian cafe. Small, cheap, good food.

All of these had great staff, which added to the experience. I think Franquette was on the pricey side; the others weren't.

Have a great time; this is a good tour.

If you are interested in a good sandwich, we ate at a place called Fric Frac Montmartre. We stopped in when we were in the area after visiting Sacre Coeur and we were really pleased with the menu and the sandwiches we ordered. We walked along Rue des Martyrs and saw numerous places to eat, just lovely. As mentioned above, you will have a wide variety of food choices. Have a great time on your trip.

I've eaten twice at Moulin de la Galette on Rue Lepic, once for lunch and once at dinner.
The staff has been friendly, the food delicious, and the restaurant itself is somewhat historic.
I'll happily plan a meal there again.
I've also enjoyed coffee and croissants at Le Relais de la Butte on Rue Ravignan.
I've had forgettable snacks and meals at Place du Tertre but the people watching can't be beat!

My personal favorite, Aname, 57 r Caulaincourt. A little Vietnamese Bistro. Very nice staff.

For a casual and less time-consuming meal, we enjoyed Pizzeria via Roma on Rue des Dames - terrific salad and unique pizza/focaccia with friendly service. The Edwart Chocolatier on the same block was excellent too.

I hope you enjoy the tour as much as we did last April!

For an authentic, low key and delicious meal on Montmartre, check out Le Cabanon de la Butte. It's not trendy or glitzy, just really good food at reasonable prices. They have a couple of tables with views of the city, and it's literally around the corner from Sacre Coeur.

Thanks again and keep the recommendations coming!
