National Pretzel Day (April 26) is the perfect time to show the love to everyone’s favorite carb. A good pretzel comes in all forms, whether as savoring a Bavarian snack or treating yourself to a pretzel covered in chocolate.
We love a perfect pretzel snack as much as you do, so celebrate National Pretzel Day with these yummy Yelp-approved businesses:
Donauschwaben’s German-American Cultural Center – Olmsted Falls
Celebrate the Old World origins of the pretzel (or should we say bretzel) at Donauschwaben’s German-American Cultural Center. Located in Olmsted Falls, this cultural center hosts a restaurant with traditional German fare. Schnitzel is abundant, but the real star is the Bavarian pretzel. Served with a beer cheese dip, it’s as close to Deutschland as you’ll get in Northeast Ohio.
Fear’s Confections – Lakewood
You may know Fear’s Confections for their quirky Star Wars and Shark Attack chocolates, but have you tried its chocolate-covered pretzels? Located on Madison Avenue in Lakewood, the business prides itself in creating chocolate in small batches by hand. The chocolate treats are always fresh, beautiful, fun, and of course, delicious!
Merwin’s Wharf – Cleveland
At Merwin’s Wharf, one pretzel can feed a whole family, and we’re not kidding. The jumbo pretzel is served with a side of beer cheese and mustard. Located in Riverside Park along the Cuyahoga River, the Wharf boasts a picturesque view. Sit on the outdoor patio and enjoy the sights and sounds of being right on the water!
Das Schnitzel Haus – Parma
Look no further than Das Schnitzel Haus for an authentic German experience. This family restaurant has all the staples: bratwurst, beer (for Mom and Dad) and the mighty pretzel! Its hand-twisted Bavarian pretzel is served warm with a Yelp-worthy bacon cheese sauce. Yes, the family might go into carb overload, but it’ll be totally worth it.
Sweet Designs Chocolatier – Lakewood
Sweet Designs pretzels are hand-dipped with the perfect chocolate-to-pretzel ratio. You can stick with the classic milk chocolate pretzel or try decadent dark chocolate. The shop often has samples for you to try, so stop in to get your hands on some goodies to share with the whole family.
Sweet or savory, it’s up to you. One thing’s for sure—those pretzels are going to be delicious! For more great pretzels, check out the National Pretzel Day Guide bookmark collection or download the free Yelp mobile app to find spots in your area!
