TIPS : If you go to Chez Prune, you will behave like a real Bourgeois Bohême of Paris (Bobo). The Brunch on Sunday is the most appreciated.
Chez Prune is a great place for lunch or for drinking in the evening. The restaurant offers few, but good day formulas. Chez Prune is the meeting place for Canal Saint-Martin's Bobo (Bourgeois Bohême), especially in the evening and at Sunday brunch. The rest of the time, clients are the neighborhood local workers. Chez Prune is not a touristic place, but a genuine old café of Paris.
We advise you to order the daily formula. Otherwise, we have enjoyed the following dishes :
- Parmentier de Veau (14€)
- Saumon Poêlé (14€)
- Assiette aux Deux Viandes (13€)
Parmentier de Veau : which is veal with mashed potatoes, salad and roasted bread.
Saumon Poêlé : which is fried salmon with rice, and vegetables.
Assiette aux Deux Viandes: which is a mixture of dried ham, cooked beef, minced meat with vegetables and taboulet.
Chez Prune is a grunge and old café with high ceilings and soft light. The population is very local. In the evening and on Sunday, the café is crowded with young Bobo from the neighborhood. It may be a bit packed and noisy, but it's always as cozy as a typical Paris café.
The café-restaurant Chez Prune is a good choice for your lunch break during your visit to Canal Saint-Martin and a good opportunity to experience the life of a local Parisian.
