If Pret were an American chain, it may not have caused a lot of fuss. But there’s just something so damn British about this place—the attractive, stainless-steel design; the cheeky blurbs on every bag, carton and bottle—that you can’t help but think it’s somehow more special than, say, Au Bon Pain. Truth is, the chains are somewhat similar, but Pret gets points for using better ingredients (Ronnybrook yogurt, Niman Ranch ham) and packaging them with more style.

There are so many things I love about Pret. Everything is so fresh and I love the fact that you can get a half sandwich, which leaves plenty of room for indulging in the most delicious cookie - The Harvest Cookie - which is one of the best cookies I've ever tasted.  A fresh take on an oatmeal raisin cookie, the Harvest Cookie is served warm and has cranberries,walnuts, raisins and rolled oats. Absolutely delicious. I also love the fresh juices and salads, sandwiches, yogurts - everything is presented beautifully.  It's a great place, you won't be disappointed.  And definitely get the Harvest Cookie - my favorite!
