We came to have a look at the Saint-Martin canal area and, naturally, came by this famous cafe. As we also found an empty table at this trendy, busy corner, why not eat? Service fine, food average, September sun, so a pleasant Sunday lunch. Still, as a whole, an average restaurant in a most trendy area.

We have been there many times over 10 years and there is a timeless charm about this place. Brunch is very popular so it is sometimes difficult to get a table but it is so Paris that it is worth waiting for if you have time to wait.

Had Sunday brunch with family and friends. Options for mains are limited : ham with cheese on a toast or smoked salmon but both are excellent. The potatoes are deliciously done and the vinaigrette for the salad special too. Decor is that of a traditional French bistro. Service is efficient and smily. Chez Prune was one of the first on Canal St Martin but is still very good.

We were searching along the street and chose badly. I can't blame this cafe for serving brunch on a Sunday morning-they definitely advertised the fact and with only two choices of meals -both the same except a choice of salmon or ham and cheese. If that's what you want -go for it, but it was pretty mass-produced. My toast (with the ham and cheese on it) was burned at the edges. Salad dressing was good.

Scruffy looking restaurant but packed to the rafters the day we went for lunch. Good menu that changes daily. I had the chicken and lemon casserole with courgettes, chicken just fell off the bone, all gooey and unctuous. My son had the fish with bulgar wheat and salad. Bit too healthy for me but he enjoyed it. Place was full of locals. Service was efficient and food was plentiful and inexpensive.
