PRET A MANGER
GUTOM EATS! Pret a Manger is NOW OPEN at Marine Drive Skytrain Station in South Vancouver. The new Pret a Manger is a stall inside A & W restaurant. Is this the wildest collaboration ever?! Let’s check it out! Yes you can get Root Beer with your Pret a Manger.
A and W has done the unexpected. They’ve brought over PRET A MANGER the popular grab and go sandwich shop from the UK.This is the first location in CANADA.
Pret is a famous UK based fast food chain known for fresh sandwiches, soups, baked goods, and coffee in a cafe setting. This is the first Pret in Canada. The stall is a test ‘pilot program’ to see if people like the food! A&W has the exclusive rights to Pret in Canada!
Prices are reasonable at $5 – $14.99 and the portion sizes seem very good and filling. There’s a cold food fridge, hot food section, merch/coffee, and baked goods. Plus fresh bananas, and apples. That would be pretty good for breakfast convenience!
In French, Pret a Manger means Ready to Eat!
Nice quality and presentation. The avocados and veggies look fresh. A feast for the eyes! A funny contrast with the fried foods and burgers of A&W.
Lots of delicious choices here. Hard to choose!
Sandwiches, wraps, soups, even MAC AND CHEESE!
Romesco Chicken & Mozzarella Baguette $9.99
Grilled Chicken, Bocconcini, Basil, Roasted, Tomatoes, Mayo, Arugula, Romesco Sauce, Chili Salt, Baguette.
The bread is just right, not too hard that it cuts the roof of your mouth, and not too soft that it gets spongy.

Crunchy Chipotle Chicken & Avo Wrap $9.99
Grilled Chicken, Avocado, Red Pepper, Pickled Red Onions, Romaine, Cilantro, Greek Yogurt, Mayo, Spicy Chipotle Sauce.
Large Latte $3.69

$-$$ FAIR PRICE. Affordable!
GOOD! The sandwich has a nice baguette, good portion size, very filling. The wrap is tasty and is slightly spicy. Mac and Cheese was steaming hot.
The coffee is not as advertised with latte art. No barista skills here.
GOOD! Nice, friendly. They replenish the food during busy lunch hour.
Overall, SATISFIED. A&W and Pret A Manger is a perfect collab no one expected! The food is fresh, tastes healthy and delicious.
