Excellent place to get your coffee and breakfast fix to start your day or a pick me up to keep you going. The staff, particularly Maame & Othame go out of their way to make sure customers are cared for.

The queuing was a little chaotic. This is a nice place to stop and have coffee and cake and the staff are friendly, albeit on occasions rushed off their feet. Until the weather is much warmer, take suitable accessories to sit outside, if that is what you want to do - the views are lovely.

Nice atmosphere overlooking Lake. Very clean and tidy restaurant and clean toilets ! 2nd time been served by the excellent smiley waitress Angie. The food is tasty, well cooked and presented. Only negatives were that the mussels in the Paella were very very small and the tomatoes in mixed salad were not ripe. Will go back again though for sure... More

After a day of shopping we stopped here for tea and cake. They serve an excellent large cup of tea here and the cakes are delicious. We recommend sticky toffee and pecan or mandarin and pistachio. Will definitely visit again.

Good positioned restaurant with a fair amount of 'outside' seating. Usual reliable range of breakfast food and drinks. Friendly and helpful staff and reasonably priced.

As always with pret good selection of sandwiches salads etc although the choice of hot wraps was disappointing as they only had a vegetarian one.

Always a safe bet to get a good sandwich and a drink away from the bustling food hall. Good value and a good selection.

Well positioned on the ground floor close to House of Fraser. Large seating area and the usual range of Pret food / drinks. The staff were friendly and dressed up in view of Halloween. You cannot fault the quality of the offering.

My husband and I go here twice a week and are always served by very happy and friendly staff! The coffee is the best in Lakeside, and yes, we've tried them all over the years! The tables are always cleared and cleaned and if you don't like you coffee, they will make another one to your taste! Superb service!
