In fact, the line for Squabisch Pretzels turns all over the block.
“From the beginning, there was a lot of interest just because it was a unique view of pretzels,” said Squabisch Pretzels co-founder Uli Elser.
Opening their shop during the pandemic, Elser and co-founder Sabine Herrmann make handmade buns using a traditional, family-friendly recipe.
“The German cookie that Uli makes has a very thick part at the bottom, so it invites you to put something inside,” Herrmann explained.
The founding duo fills the pretzels with everything from bratwurst to chocolate. When visiting, choose from a range of classic flavors, such as jalapeño and cheddar cheese, and experimental creations, such as dulce de leche with Maldon salt.
In addition, each week customers can choose from a list of surprise menu offers. The ever-changing options make customers come back for more.
“Every Wednesday, we put a new menu on the internet and it hangs in the window,” Elser described. “Many people like to try five or six different varieties.”
