ISO Pretzel bread, anybody doing this?

I keep seeing awesome looking sandwiches in various media that sport pretzel bread, and the concept sounds just amazing. Do any Boston area bakeries or markets sell pretzel bread rolls? I would love to try some home made pastrami on a pretzel roll, or a humble burger. Let me know if you've seen this stuff in the wild, as I have not!

  1. Whole Foods has it sometimes (Beacon Hill and River Street).

    I know Area Four will put their incredible pretzel nuggets back on the menu at some point in the Fall. Those things are perfect in every single way. Personally, I don't think they should come off the menu in the Summer.

      WF has them at all their stores...

    2. Swiss Bakers in Reading make pretzel rolls. (Some day they'll be Swiss Bakers in Allston as well, but I'm not holding my breath...)

      1. Costco is selling them, in slider size, they taste really good.

        1. Swiss Bakers has a stand at the Dewey Square farmers market on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They sell pretzel rolls.

          Additionally, Barlow's on A street in Southie does a reuben on a pretzel roll. It's pretty good.

            I can't beleive I was just about to ask where was Dewey Square, glad I googled it, as after that occupy business last year, it would have made me look like I was living under a rock! That sounds like my spot, as I often walk through there on my lunchtime walk, but haven't stopped at any of the venders!!! I wonder if they come to the City Hall farmers market as well?

              I just picked up two pretzel roll baguettes from Swiss Bakers at South Station. They look great.

                Yep, walked by there today, but sadly had no cash, but your right, it looks delicous

            2. Mariposa in Central Square has great sandwiches on pretzel rolls. Though with notably bad service.
