Where to find this service:
Ca'puccino, the authentic Italian coffee house, has its first airport store at Heathrow. With a menu offering typical and regional Italian dishes, the mission is to take you on a 'giro d'Italia'.
Ever since we opened our first coffee house in 1997, Caffè Nero has been dedicated to two things: creating the very finest handcrafted Italian coffee and providing a warm and relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy it.
Caviar House & Prunier Seafood Bar
A familiar sight in airports worldwide, this clean-cut seafood counter is a regular haunt for frequent flyers. They come for the speed and reliability of the operation, the light, simple food and the convivial bar set-up. Prices may look a little ‘expense account’, but the Discovery (£38) is a three-tiered salmon feast, easily enough for two. If you’re dashing, pick up one of the takeout boxes; if you’ve time to linger over a glass of Muscadet or house Champagne, there’s table seating. Don’t miss the signature Balik salmon

Fortnum & Mason
Fortnum & Mason has been famous for servicing the needs of travellers and explorers since the early 18th Century. Fortnum & Mason now welcomes customers into their first standalone airport store, carrying an edit of products from the flagship store, including iconic hampers and a range of teas and preserves.
You can’t miss the colourful furniture or graffitied walls (or 5m tall Terminal 5 giraffes) of this family- and group-friendly chain. There’s nothing understated about the catch-all global menu either, from the signature Mexican huevos rancheros at busy breakfast times, to Malay noodles, Austrian Schnitzel, ribs and traditional fish and chips throughout the day. It’s also a great place for a hearty superfood salad. Kids are particularly well catered for, with special menus and colouring sheets – Terminal 5 has plane-spotting opportunities galore, too.
Gordon Ramsay Plane Food
A new look Plane Food restaurant opened its doors in August. Following on from the major redesign and refurbishment, diners can enjoy a new Asian bar, where chefs prepare dishes in front of guests in an open kitchen.

Plus, get ready for Plane Food's 'Grab and Go' option, a new pre-prepared food offering ensuring that those short of time can still enjoy a Gordon Ramsay dining experience 40,000 feet in the air.
Kids also eat free in the restaurant and can enjoy Matilda Ramsay's Tilly's Treats menu.

Pret A Manger
Pret’s mission has remained the same since it first opened in London in 1986: proper sandwiches without the chemicals, additives and preservatives of ‘factory food’. Now they’ve added boxed salads, hot wraps, soups and sushi to the line-up, as well as breakfast porridge, pastries, baked cakes and slices (the chocolate brownie is legendary). Smoothies, juices and good-quality coffee are all served with a smile. If they’ve sold out of what you’re looking for, just ask – there might be more on the way.
One of the world's most iconic coffee brands offering a fine range of freshly roasted coffees, Italian-style espressos and ice-blended drinks, plus delicious panini, sandwiches, cakes and pastries.
