The area around the Bastille is one of my favorite areas in Paris. During two of my Paris trips I stayed at a little apartment on the Cour Damoye, a really cute, tiny street where a bunch of artists have their studios. If you walk from Rue Daval to Rue de Lappe you will find a lot of really nice bars that didn't seem to be too packed with tourists, but rather places where actual Parisians hang out.
If you walk the opposite direction from Metro Bastille you will easily find the Place des Vosges with a wonderful little park with children playing. Here you will also find the Maison de Victor Hugo, the house where author Victor Hugo lived between 1832 and 1848. It's one of the lesser known museums in Paris and entrance is free. If you like Victor Hugo's work it's definitely a must-see.
The street leading up and back down Rue Saint-Antoine also has a few nice coffee shops and small restaurants.
First time you go to Paris, go. So you can say you've been there.. and so you know how overrated it is. The area around the Eiffel Tower is much more interesting than the Tower itself. Seriously, it's just a bunch of steel.
I looooooooooooove the bookstore! It's absolutely amazing. You can find so many books on Islamic history, philosophy,... more travel advice
