Found this place out back of our hotel, a little pricy, but Amazing almond crossiants, good ice coffee, and reg coffee, went here twice.

“Great Sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We love Pret! They have really yummy, fresh sandwiches and salads. Great for a super quick bite, as everything is pre-made. It's an easy grab and go. They have a few tables, but during lunch hours it's hard to secure one. But you are in NYC, so it's nice to find a place outside and eat and relax.

“Fresh and fast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Stopped by Pret for a quick bite on the go and was seriously surprised by how fresh and tasty their sandwiches are. I didn't expect much for a pre-made concoction but this was really, really good.

“The best English export to America since The Beatles?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

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.
