We had our breakfast, lunch and dinner on numerous occasions at Pret all over London. They have nice sandwiches, favorites being Philly cheese steak and the tuna melt. We considered them a safe and dependable choice when we were at a loss of what to eat. Their coffee could be better though.

This is the worse coffee ever! Don't bother coming here, it's bitter and they serve it cold. They took our order wrong and we were waiting for a long time! No service.wont come back.

This is a small little restaurant that is always busy. Coffee is ok, food is fresh and merchandised beautifully

Thank you Pret! This is my new favourite. I ended up going back for a second after I'd finished shopping. Due to a dairy intolerance I'm limited to black coffee (almond milk doesn't quite work... Pret you've cracked it). Thank you!

The smell when you walk in is amazing!!! All of the food stuffs are made FRESH constantly and the soups are to die for. My favorite is the prosciutto, rocket, buffalo mozzarella and tomato on French baguette. Many locations throughout London. Great coffee and pastries. Very affordable....Enjoy

This is a good place to eat if you are in a hurry. They have several options and a few are vegetarian. The prices are right for the food and there are some delicious sandwiches.
