Great On-the-Run Food, Great Value

We grabbed sandwiches and wraps here twice this past Friday on a day trip to Manhattan. They use top ingredients and everything was very tasty.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. We recently stayed in Midtown and passed a Pret-a Manger on arrival at out hotel at 9:30 at night. We wandered in to find gorgeous soups and portions of hot mac n cheese that satisfied us fully. They're open from early until very late. The food is healthy, fresh, and fantastic when travelling.

Discovered this place by chance and was really happy to have lunch there! The food was fresh, the service was fast and there was a sweet little corner to sit and eat. The only downsides were the price - which was relatively high -and the ice tea - which was tasteless. So, go try it out!

Our first trip to NY included a bunch of stops at the many Pret A Manger's around the city!! Great place to duck into for a delicious hot chocolate or mocha and snack, especially when it is cold out!!

LOVE this place for lunch! Their line system is not figured out and sometimes the confusion around it can cause a dispute between customers. The daily soups are always on point and the BANG BANG CHICKEN WRAP is my #1 wrap! :)

I love it here. I love what they offer, a little pricy sometimes but worth it. I always get a seat and I always enjoy the selection. HOWEVER, Customer service means a lot to me. In all the times I have been there I never had an issue. The other day 9/28 I went there solely for a coffee and... More

We quickly came in to Pret A Manger for an afternoon snack. We were able to get a nice hot bowl of lentil soup, a warm chicken burrito and a baguette sandwich very quickly. All of the food was excellent, especially the soup and the burrito. When we finished eating the food, we were sad that it was over. I... More

We went looking for a morning cup of coffee and fresh bagels or breakfast food. The coffee was okay, nothing special. There was very little fresh breakfast food and we were disappointed

We've had lunch here several times with my husband and have enjoyed their fresh salads and sandwiches etc....however my beef is with the fresh fruit. They charge .75 cents per apple and they are rotten floury and awful! The bananas are exactly the same, old and bruised black. Please get fresh fruit!!! We can tell the difference between good and...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
