Pret is my lazy lunch choice. They are not exactly cheap but as the sandwiches and salads are made on site they are always fresh, the bread isn't stale and any lettuce has not had the chance to go soggy. In the summer I like to get the Italian Chicken salad which contains a mix of soft chicken, nuts salad and olives and peppers (which I always remove) or the breadless crayfish and avocado. But I really look forward their Christmas sandwich. Complete this year with turkey, cranberry,... (read more)

Every morning I head to Pret to pick up my breakfast. Normally go for a coffee, porridge (with honey) and some fruit. It works out quite expensive going five times a week but the convenience is great. A big plus is that they seem way more efficient when compared to Starbucks in serving coffee! There is only one person operating the machine but they churn it out super quick. Negative - the fruit sucks a little. (read more)

Generally i like to food at Pret a Manger. You know that when you eat there you are probably going to get a good quality sandwich in some exciting flavours. Their crisps are a joy to eat though and i am always being tempted by them and they are often that which lures me into the shop in the first place.
Never having any money it is very useful that they take credit card but my main issue with them is that they seem to be hideously overpriced. I often find sandwiches from delis are cheaper... (read more)

Very fast service and good coffeeat Pret A Manger. I like the very berry fruit pot and there always seems to be plenty of stock in my local Pret a Manger. It can be a little manic in store at peak times but staff are always polite. My coffee was delayed one morning and the lady refunded my money for having waited so long and I hadn't even complained - nice touch! I love the baguettes but the sandwiches always seems to have a bit too much dressing or mayo in for my taste. Fruit is expensive... (read more)

Coffee excellent, sandwiches good (lack on vegetarian options on occasions), soup used to be brilliant and probably still is good, but Hayloft Foods Soups tops theirs every time. Their Saag Aloo & Rice Soup makes Pret's look and taste like dishwater - not quite, but if you get the chance to try Hayloft Foods soup you will not be disappointed. (read more)

I popped in to Pret a Manger for a coffee today thinking I could sit outside and enjoy a ciggie with my coffee. I'd been shopping and fancied a sit down, coffee and smoke but to my surprise when I went outside to grab a seat all the tables had 'No Smoking' signs on them! Now, I know smoking has been banned but us smokers only have the outdoors in which to indulge our habit and have endured cold, wet and windy weather on many occasions when all the non-smokers are snug and warm inside. A bit... (read more)

I buy my lunch very often from Pret a Manger, I usually go for one of their soups depending on what they have, the chicken avocado sandwich, one of the hot wraps or one of their choices of salads, the food is fresh and very tasty, the place is always clean and tidy and the staff are really friendly and offer great customer service, I also have tried their esspreso, it is lovely and they sometimes offer free coffee in the morning for their regular customers (read more)

Pret A Manger make the best coffee of all of the franchises, in my experience. The coffee is rich and rounded and you don't need to ask for an extra shot as it's quite strong enough. A soya latte costs a mere £1.89 (compared with £2.40 at Starbuck's). They also fill the cup up - so often at Starbuck's you come away with 2/3rds of a cup plus a lot of fluff. (read more)

Pret a Manger - In a moment of frustration, I worked out that I spend over £6 per day at Pret, or £1,500 per year.
I've vowed to stop. The problem for me is that Pret has declined from a niche, high-quality lunch retailer into a mass market, on-every-street-in-London-and-now-elsewhere sandwich chain outlet.
Not surprising when you learn that they are now owned by McD's -- yes, them of the golden arches!
It has been steadily downhill from there. Expensive, poor service, massive queues in...
