Pret was one of my favorite chains in the UK, and now they're taking over America one NYC block at a time. Here's the gist: You grab ready-to-eat sandwiches, paninis, cakes, cookies, baked goods, chips, salads, and more right off the shelf, then take them to the counter to pay. The employees can whip you up a mean cup of espresso or a latte, as well.
Thus, the speed of service is incredible. There's no better place to grab a quick bite. Critically, this is "fast" food that is the direct opposite of fast-food. All of the fresh food is made behind the counter and is completely organic, non-GMO, and not preserved. Starbucks has been trying to play catch-up recently by adding a lot of food options, and Pret is undoubtedly the target.
Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Pret is a great way to go, especially in NYC and other large metros. For sightseers or busy businespeople, you can't get food this well-made in such a short of time anywhere else but Pret A Manger.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Mochas, roasted drip coffees, Chicken Caesar sandwich, Italian sandwich, Harvest Cookie (oatmeal-raisin), bagged popcorn, BBQ chips, yogurt and granola pot, and ESPECIALLY the Carrot Cake.
