Everything Vegan at Pret a Manger (Feb-2020)

Pret A Manger Vegan Options Logo

Pret A Manger is by far the most popular and well known sandwich shop in the UK, as it’s one of the only chain restaurants of it’s type in the UK.

Overall you can eat at Pret a Manger as a vegan, however their vegan options aren’t very impressive currently, especially for a restaurant/fast-food joint in the UK. But hey, you can still get a decent vegan meal at Pret a Manger for a reasonable price.

Unfortunately unlike their American counterparts you can’t build-your-own sandwich at Pret a Manger due to the sandwiches generally not be prepared on-site at pret a manger. They use local kitchens/cooks nearby to service many stores rather than kitchens in each location, and thus you cannot build-your-own sandwich.

Vegan Sandwiches & Wraps at Pret a Manger:

  • Avocado, Olives & Toms Sub Sandwich
  • Smokey Carrot & Falafel Sandwich
  • Smashed Avocado on Gluten-Free Bread
  • Hummous & Chipotle Wrap
  • Falafel Avocado & Chipotle Flat Bread Wrap

Unfortunately these are generally the only vegan-friendly sandwich Pret a Manger offers due to them lacking the ability for you to build-your-own sandwich. They have plenty of non-sandwich options that are vegan though, and honestly what else do you need than some avocado in some bread, or some falafel and veg in a loaf of bread?

Non-Sandwich Vegan Main Dishes at Pret a Manger:

  • Acai & Almond Butter Bowl
  • Mango & Banana Sunshine Bowl
  • Very Berry Croissant

You can also add berry compote or Cranberries and seeds generally for free to your porridge if desired, however that’s not always available and some locations may charge you for it apparently.

In addition to the compote or cranberries you can get fruit on the side to add-in to the porridge, or just eat on the side!

Vegan Drinks & Coffee at Pret a Manger:

  • Essentially all if you order them correctly (See below)

They have tons of coffees as well as juices and smoothies and other vegan-friendly goodies. All you have to do is order them with either Rice, Coconut, Soy, or Almond milk, and it’ll be vegan-friendly. Not every Pret location may have all those vegan-friendly creamer/milk options, but they should have at least a couple of them, so don’t worry about that. They always have a vegan-friendly milk option.
