Stopped in for a quick lunch; great selection of pre-made sandwiches and wraps that were quite good. The food tasted freshly made. Some hot items also available. Great lunch if you are in a hurry and need something good.

Super convenient, right across the street from my office. Get there right before or after the lunch rush and you are in and out. I have sampled several different items and am still searching for that one thing that I need to come back here for. The one item that I thought would do it was the Falafel Mezze Salad... More

When traveling between cities, especially if I have to sit tight for a later connection, Pret A Manger is a great go-to for food & killing time. I trust their ingredients, they have incredible customer service and the staff have always been cheery-polite, whether I'm walking in at 9 a.m. or 6 p.m. I also don't mind the prices (wraps... More

Even though the sandwiches are all pre-made (usually the kiss of death as far as I am concerned) they are all really tasty and fresh. Not slopped together like some fast food place. People behind the counter need to stop chit chatting with one another and pay attention to the customers though, this is a constant problem.

We stopped here for lunch on the way back to the train and appreciate that the hot soup is actually hot (love the butternut squash/Apple) and the sandwiches are fresh not soggy, delicious and great combinations of flavors. We discovered this chain in London and the same high standards apply here at this location: Immaculate, cheerful helpful staff, high quality,... More

If you haven't eaten at one of these Pret A Manger places, you must. They have a great selection of fresh and healthy foods. The yogurts are great and so are the salads. They also have great pastries and coffee. I fell in love with the brand while in London. I was excited to see it in Chicago. Well worth... More

If you have never been to a Pret (London, NYC etc.), you should go. In global scale, it's more like a Subway or Starbucks than local artisan sandwich craft, but they do offer fresh and very appealing sandwiches on whole grain bread (in addition to salads and coffee and healthy drinks). And a "slim" (half) sandwich (I had chicken and... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
