You might want your food on the go, or perhaps – if the weather is good – you might like a picnic!
Pret A Manger sell sandwiches (freshly made on their premises daily), wraps, salads, sushi, fruit juices, pastries (and anything else they can come up with that proves popular). Pret is actually pretty pricey – the cheapest, plainest sandwiches cost about £2, so if you want to go the whole hog you might find yourself paying quite a bit for lunch! That’s not too say that the food isn’t delicious though! There is a Pret next to the tube station, in the arcade in High St. Kensington.
Make your own sandwiches!
The ultimate cheap option would be to buy food from a local supermarket. There are numerous ones dotted all around – to name a few, there is a huge 24-hour Sainsbury’s on Cromwell Road and a giant Tesco on the corner of Cromwell Road and Warwick Road; a smaller Tesco on Kensington High Street; and a Waitrose also on Kensington High Street, as well as Gloucester Road and King’s Road. Marks & Spencer also sell good quality food; there’s one on Kensington High Street and another on King’s Road.
Buy some cold cuts, cheese, fresh bread and go to one of the local parks and have a feast in the nice weather. This would be about £5-£10 for two.
Or, if you like the idea of a picnic, but feel like slightly fancier food, why not pop along to the Whole Foods on Kensington High Street?
