99p Coffee at Pret a Manger

Written by Karen Bryan

At Pret a Manger you can buy a filter coffee for 99 pence. I think this good value for money, as many UK cafes charge around £2 for a coffee. Not quite as cheap as the 50 pence  coffees at Hummus Bros in London, but still a good money saving tip if you need a break when you’re in Newcastle city centre. Most Pret a Manger branches also offer free wifi.

Maybe cafes are finally twigging that customers just aren’t willing to spend their travel and leisure budgets on overpriced hot drinks. When you think of it, £2 for a coffee three times a week equates to over £300, enough to pay for a cheap off-peak one week trip such as our holiday to Malta in May 2011.
