“Aim for Pret (before doing anything else)”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Arrive in York, by car , bus or train and aim straight for Pret. Collect a latte and a sandwich or a croissant and go upstairs and sit in comfort for a good half hour whilst you sort yourself out.Check your mobile, check your debit and credit cards, sort out your coupons, but above all relax with one of the best coffees in York. The sandwiches are always fresh; none of those yesterday's sandwiches here and the service is the best. The staff here actually smile and mean it, not through the process of staff training but because they enjoy helping people. I will continue to drop in at Pret for as long as its there. Good one!

“Best coffee but...”
Reviewed 12 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

First of all I must say that I love Pret and if I have a choice where to have a cup of coffee, I go to Pret and never regretted. There is only one Pret in York and it is in a very center of town but it is very quiet during week days and it is possible that you could buy Pain aux raisins or Croissant which had been laying for the whole day and it could be not as good as it should. Besides that, nice place.

“Good view from upstairs”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

I like this Pret because the upstairs seating area is comfortable and has views from the seats near the windows of this lively street- especially good when the Christmas market is on. Food and drinks are the usual reliable offering. Prices are good value. Staff are pleasant and helpful.

“Tasty granola for breakfast”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

The pots of honey, yoghurt and granola are lovely and a perfect size for breakfast. It was spoilt slightly by the overly loud music that was playing in the near empty place, which was made worse considering it was early morning!
