Pret A Manger has unveiled new additions to its menu for 2024, including a vegan friendly Bánh Mì and VLT sandwich.

Familiar favourites, including the firm’s iced banana cake, are also being added back to the menu.

“We’re excited to be bringing back many of our customer favourites this year including our beloved Banana Cake and introducing our Veggie Pret bestseller – the VLT – into all Pret shops across the country as we look to ensure we have more vegan friendly and veggie options in our main estate, offering more choice for everyone,” said Katherine Bagshawe, UK food & coffee director at Pret.

“I am passionate about Pret’s menu offering customers choice – be that a range of ingredients, healthier lines versus a treat, we want to make sure our range accommodates the broad tastes and needs of our customers. So, we’ve brought back our much-loved Slims range of sandwiches and baguettes to sit alongside our new snack-sized yoghurt pots and Petite salads allowing customers more mix and match options of their favourites or new creations,” Bagshawe added.

Here’s a closer look at some of the new options:
