Pretzels are popular all over the U.S., of course, but here in Philly, they’re breakfast.


New Yorkers bring bagels to work and Southerners bring Krispy Kreme doughnuts,
but here, if you want to make friends at the office, you swing by Furfari’s Soft Pretzels on Frankford Avenue (or wherever your secret spot is) and pick up a dozen soft pretzels still warm from the oven. You’ll even find their fresh pretzels sold inside the local elementary schools first thing in the morning, with a line of children clutching quarters stretching down the hall from the pretzel cart.
