Stop what you’re doing. Pret is opening on Byres Road

Hold on a sec

Yep. You heard right.

Pret A Manger, the organic rival to Costa, Starbucks and Café Nero, is opening on Byres Road.



The new site is just off Great George Street, down from Marks and Spencer’s – basically, the prime location for students.

Pret, widely regarded as the cream-of-the-crop when it comes to organic coffee and natural food, is sure to be a hit amongst Glasgow students during their lecture breaks.

What, we don’t need anywhere else to buy quaint sandwiches and spend our student loans on? Rubbish.

Gregg’s directly across the road will perhaps be panicking as their Byres Road branch is usually packed with hungry students every lunch time.

Pret sell a wide range of food, and their menu is especially exciting during the festive season when it’s presented with a Christmas revamp. They do Christmas lunches, macaroni cheese, a wide variety of toasties, and mouth-watering sweets like gingerbread and mince pies.
