Had a great paper-cupfull of porridge at Pret, just south of the Vauxhall Bridge. You can get it with honey or blueberries...I went with the honey and didn't regret it. My wife enjoyed her tomato and mozzarella croissant for breakfast--sounds strange, but it worked!
It's a nice clean place with a variety of seating. We were at a bar at the window and watched London go by. A great way to start off a chilly winter day.
I'm just generally a fan of Pret.
As someone who has worked in the service industry for quite a few years of my life, what I've experienced was managers giving orders and stand back and watch. Pret impresses me because I always see managers at a register or sweeping/mopping, or just generally cleaning up instead of delegating the task.
I started going to Pret because I was told they have the best croissants, and yes, they do, and I go back for the croissants, but also for their team work.
This Pret was no different. Clean, friendly staff, great service.
Kind of have a soft spot for this brnach of Pret A Manger because I used to live in Vauxhall and the girl who served me last night was really friendly. I had the mushroom soup (lovely, and went down so easy) and a vanilla probiotic yoghurt (sweet and tasty) and a Love Bar...coz they are so so so tasty. Thumbs up!
Wish we had one one these in the states. Had breakfast here every morning.
