    Cheap, fresh, and absolutely everywhere in London. It's a great way to keep yourself going even on a budget and in a rush.

    The food sold here is delicious and price quite reasonable. The place they decorate is clean and easy to find the food you want to buy. They serve hot and cold drinks too.

    At first, you want to hate Pret A Manger just because of the sheer AMOUNT of them scattered on every corner of the city. But then one day you have only a little money on you and you are desperately hungry, and it happens to be closest thing. So you do it. Then there is no going back. Delicious, practical tasty food that is evidently compiled with quite high quality ingredients.

    Yummy, affordable and convenient (they are everywhere)! They have a wide selection of sandwiches and other food items that are packaged for dining in or take away. My boyfriend's personal favorite is the crayfish and rocket sandwich, it's a great snack for only about four quid.

    Great sandwiches and wraps when you're on the go and need something quick. They make good curry potato crisps.

    Reliably fresh, not too expensive food in London. Some of the sandwiches are creative and surprisingly good. Different interesting drinks too, and fabulous deserts. Great place for a light lunch as you explore London.

    Tasty but overpriced for what it is. Also serves painfully small portions. For that money I want big sandwiches, not bite size one.

    Pret A Manger is a great place to grab a quick bite everywhere in London. Fresh salads, sandwiches, coffee, tea...

    I absolutely love Pret. It's a simple sandwich shop that's not too expensive that carries a wide variety of yummy foods. The avocado wrap or the chorizo wrap aren't bad either. I really need to cave in and try a halloumi and falafel one already. My only critique is that I think that £1.49 for a tiny chocolate brownie is a bit too much. If they marked that down to at least £1, they might get a bit more sales of them. They're delicious, yes. But not worth £1.49 given their size.

    I'm really excited that these are starting to pop up all over the United States. It's great quality food at a reasonable price...and the name is just adorable.

    ready, fast and delicious hot and cold sandwiches
    you could either "grab and go" if you are in a hurry or just grab a sandwich and sit there

    Living in London I ate here probably too many times. It's ultra convenient for a quick tasty sandwich and a coffee, and you can find them on just about every corner.

    Pret is basically a sandwich shop and not really great one at that. It's also a bit over priced, plus there's a fair amount of weird British flavors. It's not terrible, but it's pricy and if you are American you will wonder why all the fuss for this place.

    A quick coffee or a more leisurely sandwich stop are always a pleasure at Pret A Manger. There are plenty of different Pret locations around the city and all offer a great selection of fresh, high quality food and drinks. Well worth popping in for a quick pit-stop.

Description

Pret opened in London in 1986. College friends, Sinclair and Julian, made proper sandwiches avoiding the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much of the 'prepared' and 'fast' food on the market today. They created the sort of food they craved but couldn’t find anywhere else. There are about 240 Pret shops at the moment, most of them in the UK.
