Employees of the new Pret A Manger at 18th and M streets NW doled out free croissants to voucher-holding patrons to celebrate the store’s first day in business today.
Signs advertising the coffee shop were first spotted in October. The business resides in the former Caribou Coffee space.
Pret A Manger currently has nine shops in D.C., including downtown and Capitol Hill. Most of them are within a few blocks of another Pret A Manger.
