Absolutely appalling customer service! I’ve been going to this Pret since it has first opened in Stratford. I ordered a takeaway sandwich toastie and while it was being toasted, the staff superciliously stared at me as unexpectedly my card was declined. Feeling a bit weak, I sat down to rummage in my bag for change. The staff then proceeded to... More

We grabbed a quick breakfast here every day! I never tired of it and found the food delicious and fresh! They have clean bathrooms and plenty of seating. The service is quick and polite. There are scattered throughout London for for a reason! They have good food, a nice variety, open at reasonable times and is quite yummy!

We were able to get espresso or what an American cup of coffee and a tasty croissant for a reasonable price. (It costs less if you get it "to go.")

Quick lunch stop off in Pret A Manger whilst having a walk around the capital. Sandwiches ok but a little bit pricey. No serviettes were available!

I don't know this particular Prêt but they are consistent and if I am out and about in London and I need to refuel I never even think of another fast food place. The selection is wide, the food is healthy even when it is high in calories. When I vainly tried the 5/2 diet some time ago I discovered... More

While recently in London, we ate a couple of times at the Pret a Manger just a few steps from our hotel on Tothill (but they are scattered all around the city - and the world!). We found the food very good and the prices a sweet relief from high priced pubs and restaurants in London. These "cafes" first opened... More

We ate lunch at various locations of Pret a Manger in London and always found them to be a nice, healthy, less expensive alternative. But note that there are no washrooms in these restaurants.

Wow! Who knew that ready-made sandwiches could be this good! And their coffee and pastries were wonderful. So happy we found this place and wish we had one here in Florida!!

I remembered PRET from a previous trip to London and made converts of my daughter and granddaughter when we made a recent trip. There was one in our Bayswater neighborhood, which was great for our morning coffee, but also others all over town! They make everything fresh and don't keep anything over until the next day. They are also starting... More
