Last year we saw Pret A Manger launch a completely Veggie store located in Soho, otherwise known as 'Veggie Pret.' The store was opened with the intention of being a pop up store, but after 'testing the water' became a permanent store due to the incredibly high demand for its products.
Where is it?
Now some 10 months later, Pret A Manger have again decided to go with a completely meat free store, this time located in Shoreditch. The decision was made to transform it into a Veggie Pret due to the high amount of vegetarian sales in the area. If you've been to Shoreditch yourself, you'll of course be no stranger to the wide variety of Vegan options available. From CookDaily to Redemption, it's clear that Pret are certainly following the growing meat free trend within the area.
What's On The Menu?
Mac and greens (Vegan Mac and cheese)
Vegan chocolate brownie
Green smoothie breakfast bowl
Dairy Free chocolate chia pot
Banana, blueberry & almond butter toasted tortilla
Dark chocolate and toasted coconut pot
Avocado & beans toasted tortilla
Grilled Artichoke & Olive tapenade flat bread
Crunchy Veggie banh mi baguette
Super beans & red pepper veggie pot
Matcha coconut Latte
I think you'll agree that Pret are offering a wide variety of some great options here, which makes a difference to most high street cafes.
What About Other Pret Stores?
Of course we don't all live in Shoreditch or Soho with access to a Veggie Pret, however the High street cafe has begun offering more Vegan options in its main stores. Here is a list of all the Vegan foods I could find at Prets main stores;
Sweet potato falafel & smashed beets veggie box
Cauli & Tumeric Super Veg Salad
Super Beans, Broccoli & Turmeric Cauli Veggie box
Dark Chocolate & Toasted Coconut pot
Pret's Fruit Salad
Avocado + Chipotle Chickpeas Salad Wrap
You can find a full list of the Vegan options (including soups & drinks) at regular Pret stores here .
Whilst Pret may have only opened 2 meat free stores so far, it's certainly a great start from the high street cafe giant. One things for sure, with Veganism now rising at exponential rate, we should see more of these stores being rolled out nationwide!
