Cheap(er) eats in London

Pret a Porter is everywhere...a fine selection of tasty foods for on the go. If you buy to eat elsewhere, they are cheaper than eating inside. I cannot recommend their fruit beverages...many had an odd, perfume-ish aftertaste.

Tried Wagamama, after reading about it on a RS blog. Ehh...no big whup. Many dishes lacked any depth of flavor.

It’s Pret A Manger not Pret a Porter. Ready to Eat as opposed to Ready to Wear. :-)

Yeah, Pret à Manger is pretty much ubiquitous in London and has been our go to place for a quick breakfast or take away lunch for many years.

St Martin in the Fields restaurant in the crypt serves decent food at reasonable prices. It is not gourmet but tasty.

We like Wagarama for a quick bite such as at Heathrow. If you are looking to save money, rent an apartment and pick up inexpensive ready to heat entrees at Mark and Spencer.

I don’t care for Pret A Manger. Marks and Spencer lunches are much better. Caffè Nero is good for breakfast.
