I miss Pret :'(

I miss walking in the frosty dawn… then passing by pret’s door and the warm scent of croissants and coffee would hit me in the face… making me all warm and tingly…

I miss standing in line to have a cup of hot winter vegetables soup, removing my gloves and putting my icy hands around the cup… inhaling deeply then dunking in my soft white baguette until it’s all drenched…

I miss choosing a hearty cheese ploughmans, a bottle of juice, some sea salt and cracked pepper crisps, and taking them outside to a park… sitting on a bench and having my lunch in peace… just another person in this vast world, no one to stare, no one to size you up… just me and my pret

I miss waltzing by for a quick pick me up… the cappucino decorated with a chocolate pret star, and having a mouthful of yummy lemon cheesecake in it’s unique square cardboard box… and trying to resist the yummies melted mozzarella pastries every made… flaky, salty, and gone in one second…

I miss running inside before my train takes off… grabbing my self a salad and paying, then throwing my self inside the train as the doors close up… digging in while i watch the scenery pass by and the clunk of the train on the background…

I miss sneaking my yummy bagged pret popcorn into Odeon, or simply staying home for the day and flipping through the channels… watching lovely British Ads one after another…

I miss having a melted spicy falafel wrap… the first bite with stringy cheese mixed with grilled red peppers… no one makes it as good as pret… not even close :`(

I miss you pret :`( why can’t anyone bring  you over here why :`(

    Entay fahmatni! Was just think about london 2day! I miss their salads and crayfish sandwich 😦 I miss the cold and just being able 2 walk and take public transportation! Sitting in a park/cafe alone reading and no one thinks ur weird or “maynoona”! being almost invisible!
    Pret sandwiches and salads and the ready cut fruit of marks and sparks is what got me thru my first semester finals and papers!
