Definitely the best bet in the area for fresh food on the go. I often find myself going in there for a half-sandwich (best idea ever!). They have good vegetarian sandwich options, like avocado/parmesan/arugula. The coffee is good. The chocolate chip cookies are really, really good, which makes sense considering each contains 300 calories. They carry smoothies and yogurt cups made with Ronnybrook yogurt, which is truly an exceptional yogurt! I love the oat and fruit bar, but stopped eating it once I realized it has over 400 calories. It's loaded with butter and tastes so good.??

I've found everything to be fresh and the staff almost disconcertingly friendly. The major con is that there is almost nowhere to sit down.

If I had visited Pret a Manger once in my life, they would have earned 5 stars. However, I visited them 3 times in one week which knocked 2 stars off purely out of monotony. We were visiting NYC from LA and stayed in the Bryant Park area, which is Pret a Manger central! In every direction that you walk you will run into one within 500 feet. So we inevitably visited Pret around noon 3 of the 4 days. My kids loved the fresh fruit and lemonade. I absolutely loved the roast beef sandwich...the first day. The second day it was not my favorite....the third day I gave the chicken a try and was sorely disappointed. So in summary, Pret is good if you are in a hurry and not in the mood for fast food....although I must say Pret is faster than fast food. So give it a try.

I remember walking by this place when it was first opening as they passed out free sandwiches thinking what is this? Why is everyone going crazy for this food? A few months later I walked in and initially thought it was just another chain with frozen food being prepared to make it look fresh. After noticing the assortment of food they had I knew this place was different.

You actually get your food, and I mean get it because it??s already there ready made waiting to be taken. This makes it a perfect place to get a quick bite to eat. Ok, the service is prompt, what else? It is truly tasty. Just because it is pre-made doesn't mean it's not good. Their veggies are really fresh and crispy tasting. You could tell that they don??t put any other stuff in their food other then their natural ingredients. So far, EVERYTHING I??ve tried is scrumptious. They have a lot on their menu such as fruit, delicious soups, salads, wraps, and mouth-watering desserts. Well worth the extra calories if you ask me. And to be honest, the coffee was actually excellent there too.

This is one place I??ll keep coming back to. I??m excited to try out more stuff on the menu. It??s convenient, fast, yummy, and clean, the perfect place to stop by for lunch, before a movie, or whenever!
