    Does anyone know average prices for food in Starbucks? As in...sandwiches/paninis start at X and go up to X ? I'm taking a friend to Starbucks tomorrow and I'd like to know around how much to have prepared.

    thanks!

    Seriously? I've never tried it, but looks good on their site.

    I'm drooling at some of the pictures, and it's hard to imagine what can go wrong in a croque monsieur for example. Please do tell more, and prices if you know? Thx

    The food at Starbucks is horribly overpriced, and not usually very fresh or tasty. If you need to go to one of those big coffee chains to eat, then I would recommend Pret-a-manger above Nero, Starbucks, or any others. Hands down. They make all their stuff fresh every day, and they have a good selection of stuff with really high quality ingredients.

    Ok, I get it, expensive and not even worth it. I'm not keen on eating there, the reason I wanted food in Starbucks is...well, it's a tad complicated and stupid. I became friends with this guy who comes from a culture where it's shameful to eat out and let the girl pay her bit, and he thus took me out twice, and I feel bad, so I almost persuaded him into going to Starbucks and pay with my card so he won't look bad and l get to pay it. It would have been nice to have coffee and something else as well, maybe I'll go for some dessert? Or is all food bad?

    And btw....could anyone give me any price to form an idea?

    Oh, and I had a toastie at Pret-a-manger, pretty decent I'd say.

    Pret is much nicer than Starbucks.

    From what I remember food in Starbucks is roughly £3-4 for savoury stuff.

    Well, obviously it depends what you get, but as a rule sandwiches and cafe-type-food prices aren't going to vary THAT much. Maybe up to 5 or 6 quid per person as the maximum. Why do you need exact figures?!

    I didn't need exact, but a range, or just any example. I don't know prices everywhere, as I don't go to Nero,Costa, Pret-a-manger almost never and only go to Starbucks for coffee occasionally. And yes sandwiches price can vary, eg: they're around £2-3 in mc'D, which makes it half of what you said about Starbucks.

    You can't have me asking a question about prices at Starbucks, getting a bit of off-topic answers such as go to another place, and then ask me why am I not happy with the answers.

    The food is obscenely expensive for what you get. It's a sign of everything that's wrong with Western culture. I was disgusted tbph.

    Overpriced food which is probably cheaper at Tesco.

    I usually opt for a marmite and cheese panini which is £2.50 (yummy if you like marmite), but most things are about £4 or £3.50. And the coffee is lush, especially with the christmas ones out now. So I'd say about £6 per person. If you want to take the guy out for dinner, maybe use a voucher elsewhere like Pizza Expres or GBK (that's if you don't mind using vouchers, there's loads out there).
