If you want to try the newest outpost of the Euro chain, they are handing out an entire lunch (sandwich, weird, canned sugary "yoga" drink, popcorn, and brownie bite) and the bag included vouchers for free soup and free coffee next week - today and tomorrow only at the downtown location - Franklin and Pearl St.
My first try of Pret - I was impressed with the freshness and tastiness of the Balsamic Chicken Avocado sandwich with mesclun greens on whole grain bread (there were other choices, including vegetarian). Their bagged popcorn is fine and their brownie is super gooey and very dark chocolately - not my choice, but fresh. They also gave away baked goods upon request - almond croissant reported to be good.
The line snaked around the corner along the side of the building but took under 10 minutes as it was fast-moving.
Curious what others who have tried it elsewhere recommend once I choose to pay for lunch there...or what soups to look for next week.
