It’s London Lovin’ Week!
Managed to tick something off my bucket list today:
spend an afternoon with coffee and a book, in London’s Pret A Manger.
The name Prêt à Manger means ‘ready-to-eat’ in French. The first shop was opened in Hampstead, London.
(and please, it’s pronounced “pret-ah-mahn-zhay“, not “prettaye man-gurl”)
What I had this afternoon
“Barista’s Specialty”: Vanilla Latte
Unlike your conventional fast food, Pret A Manger only produces fresh, handmade, and 100% organic sandwiches, croissants, fruits and tarts.
And for 4pm on a Thursday afternoon, their Covent Garden store was exceptionally roomy!
Coffee from Pret A Manger was also surprisingly really really good.
Instead of reading, I was leeching off Pret’s WiFi. Which was what 90% cafè-bums would do anyway, so, not guilty 😉
Will be doing more cafè-hunting tomorrow and the day after!
